Shameless Self-promotion Sunday
Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 13 years ago, in 2010, on the World Wide Web.
Sunday. Shamelessness. You know the drill.
This is a late Sunday post because it’s been a busy weekend; L. and I rented a car to be able to do some of our spring errands (garden, groceries, minor electronic equipment, that sort of thing) and so have been running around getting stuff done while we still have the mobility to do so. Food Not Bombs was a big blast this weekend, with some new folks at the organizational meeting, a lot of fresh energy, and a big turn-out at the Sunday picnic. I took advantage of the car to scope out a couple county parks as possible locations for a second weekly picnic. And meanwhile I’ve been playing around with social networking outlets. In particular, for an alternate means of following posts as they come out, and as an easy means of getting in touch about the project if you want to, I have created new Twitter profiles for:
And I’ve also created Facebook Pages for four of my major projects (Anarchoblogs, Feminist Blogs, FeedWordPress, and the blog you see before you):
There’s some other things I’ve been busy with — on these projects and others — but that probably merits a post of its own. In the meantime, here’s to sociality. And to errands completed.
And yourself? What have you been up to this week? Write anything? Leave a link and a short description for your post in the comments. Or fire away about anything else you might want to talk about.

Really, I’ve been goofing off. And getting closer to the beach. But I’ve also been blogging a bit, about, e.e., [http://liberalaw.blogspot.com/2010/02/floor-fees-and-thick-libertarianism.html thick libertarianism in strange places]. And I’ve been working on a long blog post about the degree to which natural law theory can and can’t ground something like the non-aggression principle.

OK, evidence that there’s value in the preview option. And maybe in reading more closely.
Antonin Scalia educates a playwright on secession; and at least 21% of voters nationwide in the U.S. don’t read Rad Geek People’s Daily.
Came across an interesting remark in a story about the google hacking:
Here is the quote:
In a sense it seems academic researches of that kind are basically working 100% for the state if the state has “privileged access” to their work. I was curious what are your thoughts on the ethics of working in academic/corporate environments where your skill might be perverted to serve the goals of the state?
So far just today I’ve engaged in a bit of (well justified IMO) name-calling, observed just how toothless the US Constitution has proven w/r/t “limited government”, & wasted a few minutes of my life I will sadly never get back.
