Yes, I’m blogging from outside Nairobi, where I’ve come to investigate the true circumstances of President Obama’s birth. Seriously, Dana and I are here to go on a safari for our belated honeymoon—for both of us, it’s our first non-work-related trip in many years. Needless to say, we both brought our laptops.
Like everyone else with an ounce of sense, I’m absolutely horrified by SOPA, and inspired by the way so many Internet companies and organizations have banded together to try to prevent the United States from moving in the direction of China and Iran.
Meanwhile, on the theme of open access to information on the web, check out a New York Times article by Thomas Lin about the open science movement. I’m quoted briefly toward the end.
Sorry for the light (nonexistent) blogging lately. I’ll be back after I’m done with the lions and hippos and so forth.
