Wow, this book is really coming along. It is very difficult to choose which cases to include. I can include some at great length, but there is no way to include all of the people I know of that have been adversely affected by the DMCA. That would be... wow, huge.

I'd be interested in anyone's input at this point as to what to include. I'm taking yet another copyright class this semester.

I met with David today for 4 hours. He's great! We talked about the good old days in comp sci. He had such funny stories about Brazil. I'm glad he's back, even if it is only for another month. I hope to visit with him at least one more time before he leaves but I'm starting a new contract on monday. He helped me get a little focus and peer reviewed some of the book.

Wow this tech writing thing really worked out for me. My last job was not so great. I can say that, now that I quit. Mark left and they moved me from QA to Customer Support??? Like, whose going to find the defects now? But, since I quit on Friday, I got a contract in 3 days making substantially more money. It's only one month and will carry me until the end of the semester so I can take the time I need to finish this book! woot

Finally got Nicole to go rock climbing with me tonight! She's so afraid of heights. I said to her, how will we ever be able to go skiing or skydiving or even horseback riding if you don't get over your fear of heights! Her response was, you'll have to get Tess to go with you.

She's encouraging me to go out and meet more people, maybe even meeting and going on... a date? Like I have time for that! I know she's just trying to get out of doing these sport-like things!

Well, gotta get back to the book.
