A path toward dictatorial control over Internet content? Should it be applied globally? How would Vladimir Putin use such a tool? Or Chinese leaders? Or rulers in other countries where speaking out against political leaders is a crime? Can RTBF be constrained without exploding into a nightmare? // This HOA is currently scheduled for noon PDT on Friday 15 May.

Lauren Weinstein381,355*Hangout On Air: Discussing Congress Without Obscenities* - As of 1 PM PDT, the U.S. Senate leadership has supposedly reached a very short term deal to end the federal government shutdown and temporarily raise the debt ceiling. The fate of this package in the House is still decidedly unclear. Regardless of what Congress does right now, we're going to be in the same mess again likely in a matter of weeks or months. Let's _Discuss Congress Without Obscenities_ this evening. What's _really_ going on?  Is the GOP still even really a _political party_ any more? If not, _what are they?_  And _can we even discuss this without the constant use of invectives?_  Let's at least try. This HOA is currently scheduled for 7:30 PM PDT this evening. It is subject to change or cancellation as events warrant.  Thanks!Hangout On Air: Discussing Congress Without Obscenities2013-10-17 04:30:0012

You can't blame them Thought for the Day: It's important to keep in mind that the vast majority of Internet users now view the availability of Internet services pretty much like they view the availability of electricity, or water, or curbside garbage collection. They don't know or care about how mind-bogglingly complex keeping the Internet going actually is. They just want it to work.

// Back in the day, a not-insignificant number of Windows users ended up with Apple's Quicktime software installed on their computers, thanks in large part to iTunes. It's been a long time since it's been necessary for either the web or iTunes, though, and as such the software is pretty out of date -- not to mention a security threat. Last week, the Department of Homeland Security recommended Windows users uninstall Quicktime because of potential security holes, and now Apple is echoing that advice. The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple has confirmed it'll no longer update or support Quicktime 7 for Windows. Details to remove the offending software from your computer can be found here ... //

And now it's time to play Guess the circuit function! Here are your clues! -
1) Until a few hours ago, this circuit had been in continuous use for over 10 years.
2) I threw this circuit together in less than a hour to deal with an urgent (and continuing) need that began at that time.
3) All activity by this circuit was logged. I have the complete decade+ timestamp log of its actions.
4) The active action function of this circuit lasts for 10 seconds.
5) On average this circuit activated (always automatically) once every few days, though significantly more or less frequent activations have also occurred at seemingly random intervals over the years.
6) If you have ever accessed my blog or my other Internet services, you have been within the structural context of this circuit.
GOOD LUCK!

Bill Campbell, our very close friend, died this morning.  A man with a huge heart, who hugged everyone he met with, was more than a mentor.  He helped us build Google and in countless ways made our success possible.  We started with him as an external coach but he quickly became the internal management expert.  He attended our staff meetings, met with management, and spent countless hours with our leadership.  He helped build our Board of Directors, and helped build our culture.  He worked very very closely with our Founders in every possible way.

His contribution to the success of Google and now Alphabet is incalculable.  His legacy is the smile that he created on everyones face, and the great leaders of the valley whom he coached.  Bill was a truly gifted man, and the world lost a great leader this morning.

// Dave Cutler is one of the best software engineers in Microsoft, and arguably in the entire world. The Microsoft News Center recently published a long feature on Cutler's contributions to the company, which covers his many decades of revolutionary work in the industry. I think there are many valuable lessons for other engineers: the uncompromising approach to quality, the ability to lead by example, the world-class technical knowledge on one specific area (operating systems and kernels) and the vision to apply that knowledge to very different businesses. A must read for any practicing software engineer (link). //
