Lawrence Lessig: Delusion on the Hill? The Earmark Puzzle -
"But if Congress's elections were differently financed -- funded exclusively, for example, by small dollar democracy vouchers ($50 a voter would quadruple the total amount raised in 2008) or small dollar contributions matched by the government -- then any suggestion of improper influence would be just silly." - cori from Bookmarklet

I use 1, 2, 3, and 8. The others are largely already available in the other 3, or I wouldn't want them in my browser (i.e. I don't want an ftp client in firefox, and I use sftp wherever possible anyway), but 9 looks promising. - cori

The Official SuperSync Web Site -
Maybe worth it?? Maybe not. - cori
Looks cool, but I've been burned by other programs that allow you work with the iTunes library. The iTunes API is not fully documented, the iTunesDB format is not open, and Apple changes both fairly frequently -- enough so that you will be dependent upon the SuperSync developers to figure things out after Apple changes things. That means that at BEST, there will be unknown lag time... more... - Dan MacTough
That being said, it's pretty cheap, especially for all the features it offers. - Dan MacTough
Yeah, not too expensive. I was mostly looking for a way to automatically "Love" items in that I have marked with 5 stars in iTunes. Since the api is free for non-commercial use I may give it a try.... - cori
I've been wanting the exact same functionality. I cannot for the life of me understand why that's not a feature of the plugin. I know I could write a perl script to do it ... I guess I really don't want it that badly, huh? - Dan MacTough
Heh, that's been my tought all the time, and I didn't really want to go poking around in the iTunes Library file for it - this is the first library I've seen that might fit the bill, but I agree I always though it should be part of the scrobbling process. If I get motivated enough to do it and get something running I'll let you know (assuming you're on Windows, 'cause whatever I do will be C#) - cori from email

I don't think Bruce Schneier understands what theater is, nor what its value is.
I couldn't disagree more. I think he understands exactly what it and its value are and what they aren't. I think he sees that terrorism itself is theatre, and that by reacting as we have for the last almost-decade we are providing the terrorists with exactly what they need most. - cori
Not sure what you're thinking, Cliff, but I think Schneier could be more even-handed about the value of theater. Specifically, people like to feel safe. If you can't actually *make* people safe, maybe making people *feel* safe is worthwhile. But I mainly agree with Schneier (and cori) that security theater (1) fails to make us safer (2) fails to make those of us who are paying attention... more... - Dan MacTough
Thanks Dan, that's a much better rendering of what I was getting at. And I *do*agree that there's some value in security theatre and that Schneier doesn't give it *quite* as much credence as he might, but I only agree that there's value in it in so far as it doesn't end up being the *only* way we approach the problem. Right now it is, and that gets in the way of real solutions (which is what I inferred from Schneier's piece). - cori
The thing I most liked about Schnieier's take -- that has only a little to do with theatre -- is our very uncreative emphasis on protecting against what has just happened. This enemy is the opposite of bureaucratic sluggishness and in that sense we can be outmatched. - Amyloo
My point us that theater is an important mode if you know how to use it. I advocate better theater, the feint is as important as the blow. - Cliff Gerrish from iPhone
