Viacom workers have to agree that Viacom owns anything they ever make in the “universe,” in, “perpetuity.” Use of the Yahoo! Toolbar expressly prohibits use of the technology to operate nuclear facilities.
Inane end-user-license agreements and waivers such as these are put in the stockades on a new blog, The Small Print Project.
I launched my big school-related project today with the help of a posting from my instructor, Cory Doctorow, on Boing Boing.
Please visit the project and provide input, insight, and thoughts if you could!
What’s the Small Print Project?
I explain it briefly on the site’s About page, but Cory sums it up even better here:
Check out The Small Print Project! Thanks.
This blog launched one year ago, soon after its primary scribe began grad school and soon after the most disastrous (I hope) government in this lifetime made its most fatal — and still unforgiveable — mistake, it’s non-response to the Katrina disaster. Revisit the early days of EverythingBetween, now known as netZoo in the Sept. 2005 archives.
Back then I had a good time railing on Christopher Hitchens — who has become an adverb consistent with curmudgeonly in recent years — and now is a perfect anniversary opportunity to reprise.
Hitch flicked off the Real Time crowd last weekend on Bill Maher’s HBO show. Wish I were there. Bear with me, as I continue re-tweaking the site to consistently point in the right direction — netzoo.net is a URL I’ve used for various purposes since 1999, and its back full-force as I am retiring the Everything Between experiment. Welcome.
My apologies for the feigned death of Everything Between over the weekend… call it a classic weekend bender as the site celebrated a bit too hard in its transition into flashier, more spacious digs over at BlueHost.
After a bumpy .sql upload and multiple re-upping, we have landed. And the view is great. (as an aside, the Cubs swept the Cardinals, further proof that this MAY BE THE YEAR)!
