this week’s O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference in Santa Clara, CA, but so far Jason Kottke’s blog – and particularly his sidebar links – is a particularly excellent reference point to consult.
, who once moderated the excellent Cyber-Rights list for the CPSR, has written a fantastic article on the re-petition by the defendants in the 2600 case: Copy Controls and Circumvention: Don’t Get Around Much Any More. It’s on the O’Reilly Network.
: Mac OS X 10.1: The Real Mac OS X at the O’Reilly Network. I must say that I have really started to enjoy doing things on my Mac since upgrading to OS X. Totally ready for prime time, though I would love to have a super-effective backup regime figured out.

I liked the new story
over at O’Reilly, Death of a Dot-Com by Shelley Powers, until the very end. She wrote in her epilogue: “So why did Skyfish.com fail? Why did any of the dot-coms fail?
