Around the Wired

Let's be honest here, Windsor. This week I not only have the Dunny Series 4 Trading party at the Magic Pony, but the Nuit Blanche Art Celebration is on Saturday, followed by the Word on the Street Festival on Sunday and the Douglas Coupland reading/signing on Monday night [full report next week].

Point being: totally working for the weekend this time out. Let's get this done.

Probably the most exciting news floating around out there is Amazon's cheaper, DRM-free iTunes killer, Amazonmp3. For those of you not in the know, 'DRM-free' means the files will play on any mp3 player, and you can do whatever you want with them, burn them to as many CDs as you want, etc. Tracks will go for as low as $0.89 [cheaper than iTunes] with albums as low as $5.99 [also cheaper than iTunes]. The public beta launched today, but you'll have to tell me if it's good to go in Canada.

The most interesting thing I unearthed today is a website for cops to out other cops who give speeding tickets to cops. This apparently violates the blue brotherhood, and extends to family members as well. I warn you, the petty bitching and moaning [especially in the 'Dick of the Month' section] will likely anger you. A lot. Police, don't do your job too well, or your ass is on the outs.

Lastly, if you happen to be in Atlanta on Saturday and get off by dressing up as a Klingon or fuzzy animal, stop by the Furry v. Klingon bowling tourney at the Midtown Bowl on Piedmont at 8.00 p.m.

Seriously, when did Furries become mainstream? The mind boggles.
