I normally avoid these sorts of things, but I’m quite concerned that we will end up with a really broken legislative model for Canadian copyright issues and possibly end up in a very broken state of affairs.
I used a letter writer template at Online Rights Canada to get started here and you can read my letter to my MP as well (pdf).
Please take a minute if you feel even remotely like protecting your rights as a consumer and Canadian.
So I finally took a part of a day off from our ritual service migration episode and decided to ride the bike again. What a great excuse to go visit a friend in Livermore, CA.I rode from Mountain View to San Jose and then up to the Lick Observatory on Mt. Hamilton (warm hands in restroom, admire telescopes) and then back down the other side on San Antonio Rd, then up Mines Rd. to Livermore, past the “lab” at Livermore and over to my friend’s place.The photo is a stitched view from the observatory and you can clearly see the insanely twisty road up to the scope (Highway 130).
