    Vote for the best science blog of the year. I highly recommend voting for the 'Wattsupwiththat' weblog which is run by Anthony Watts. It's a global warming 'realist' site (i.e., not a bunch of people trying to scare you into believing the Goracle's prophecy of global heat death, but rather open minded people who have more questions about the supposed 'settled' science of anthropogenic global warming). Anthony Watts also runs the '' project which seeks to document the quality or lack thereof of temperature monitoring stations.

    GLENN Reynolds isn't just the author of "An Army of Davids." He's a living, breathing embodiment of the book's attractive and persuasive thesis as summarized in its lengthy but informative subtitle: "How Markets and Technology Empower Ordinary People to Beat Big Media, Big Government and Other Goliaths." In August 2001, Reynolds was a respected but relatively obscure law professor teaching at the University of Tennessee, a college better known for its football program than its brainpower. Then Reynolds, who had been haunting Slate's reader forum "The Fray," started, which took off like gangbusters after the 9/11 attacks. Reynolds linked...

    LOS ANGELES -- Commentator Ariana Huffington apologized to readers for a blog posted on her Web site on March 13 that was attributed to actor George Clooney but was actually a compilation of his views. Huffington acknowledged on her Web site Saturday that she was "blinded" to the issue of assembling a blog in which the source of the material wasn't clear, as was the case with Clooney. "I now realize that I made a big mistake in posting a blog without clearly identifying that the material in it didn't originate as a blog post, but was pieced together from...

    Iran va Jahan ^ | Saturday, January 14, 2006
    Described by Reporters Sans Frontieres as "the biggest prison for journalists in the Middle East" -- where, in the last six years, 41 daily newspapers have been banned -- Iran has long lacked a public forum for independent voices. But it hasn't been immune to the user-driven web revolution. In April 2003, Iran became the first government to imprison a blogger: Sina Motallebi of the popular weblog (Despite anti-censorship public outcry, the Iranian government still uses extensive filtering to block out Internet content deemed inappropriate.) It seems that as the regime has tried to crack down on "immorality," dissent...

    Microsoft Corp. on Wednesday confirmed that it took down the blog of outspoken Chinese journalist Zhao Jing, saying that it was complying with China's laws. Blogger Rebecca MacKinnon, a former CNN Beijing bureau chief now a research fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School, first reported that Jing's blog was taken down New Years Eve by Microsoft's blog-hosting service MSN Spaces. The blog has been replaced with the message, "This space is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later." Zhao, aka Michael Anti, is among a number of Chinese bloggers that have grown in popularity...

    The explosive growth of youthful, irreverent online diaries has alarmed Iran's hardline Government THE MUSIC OF Eric Clapton was banned in Iran this week. Broadcasters were ordered to cease playing “decadent” western songs and stick to “fine Iranian music”. Not content with denying the Holocaust, Israel’s right to exist, and advertising hoardings featuring David Beckham, Iran’s hardline President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has now denied his people the chance to listen to Layla — cruel and unusual punishment indeed. But if Iran, under the repressive rule of the ultraconservatives, is silencing the sound of Western pop, in another area of its culture,...

    Lawrenceville, GA (Dec. 7) – Congressman John Linder (R-GA) announced that he has launched a “blog” on his Seventh Congressional District Online Office site. A web log, or blog, is basically a web page that serves as a public journal that is updated on a regular basis and reflects the personality and goals of the author. A number of studies indicate that over a quarter of Internet users in the United States read blogs because they provide an excellent outlet for people to convey their views on issues being debated across the nation. In announcing the blog, which was launched...

Unfortunately, in a bit of rewriting of history, he disputes this, even claiming not to know us! It hurts that he doesn't remember the long walks we had, or the ice skating in central park, or when I got my first real six-string (I bought it at the five-and-dime), and played it til my fingers bled.

Now she's at the periphery of the mystery surrounding the death of Virginia Commonwealth University student Taylor Behl, whose body was found in a shallow grave on land adjoining property owned by some of Crabill's family members.

Fawley, a self-described amateur photographer, is in police custody, but not because of Behl's disappearance. Investigators following leads that he was seen with her the night she vanished...

    DOVER — The Delaware Supreme Court dismissed a Smyrna councilman's attempt to unmask an anonymous Internet poster Wednesday, reversing a lower court's decision. Smyrna Town Councilman Patrick J. Cahill and his wife Julia alleged in a September 2004 Superior Court suit that four anonymous posters to a Web log — or blog — defamed him by claiming he had an "obvious mental deterioration" and implying that he was homosexual. The Internet free speech case is the first decided by any Supreme Court, which could give it national importance, said the attorney representing one anonymous poster. "The Delaware Supreme Court recognized...

    In the past, the experiences of war have produced poetry and novels and memoirs. The War on Terror is different: we're seeing through a new set of eyes, a new kind of literature. In real time, on the Internet, officers and enlisted men and women are chronicling the war on weblogs. As the number of blogs continue to rise dramatically, blogging’s advent – the effect of which has been likened to that of the printing press on the Reformation - is giving the world the opportunity to experience the world’s latest war – the War on Terror – first hand....

    WASHINGTON — Army officials this week issued new warnings to soldiers about posting personal stories from combat zones on the Internet and taking photos at overseas bases, saying those actions could jeopardize troops’ security. The list of prohibited activities includes taking photos of Defense Department facilities, posting any official Defense Department information and releasing information detailing job responsibilities. “Whether it is a family Web page or a personal blog, safety and security measures must be strictly observed,” the message said. “Sensitive DOD information must not be divulged to the public at large for national security reasons.” The message also notes...
