Tech journalist since the dark ages. Windows Secrets, LangaList newsletter, Windows Magazine (NetGuide, Home PC), Byte, Popular Computing, yadda yadda yadda. Google me, if it matters.

This feed is mostly personal interest; it's NOT my professional writing. There's tech here, yes, but also lots of general science and some politics and weird humor thrown in.

At the urging of the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins, the GOP adopted a plank calling for “vigorous” enforcement against ALL pornography and obscenity. (They previously only opposed child pornography.)

While this may seem unsurprising, given the party's close ties with the religious right, there's one big problem: Red states are the biggest consumers of porn in the country. (With Mormon Utah leading the pack.)
