#ed008c = solidarity

Veronica Belmont (daily.mahalo.com) and Ryan Block (engadget.com) are both posting that Deutsche Telekom (parent company of t-mbile is demanding that Engadget Mobile discontinue its use of the color magenta, as it causes “confusion” between the brands. In response, Engadget has gone a lovely shade of pink for the day, and Veronica says “I kind of love it and wish it would stay that way”. This is moronic, The Copyright/Trademark/Patient system is so screwed up that shit like this happens. Its so stupid that I’m kind of at a loss for words (almost 90 words in 😛 ) this is seriously stupid so please everyone add this picture to your site in solidarity And as ChuckD said “you gotta fight the powers that be”

Projects are taking a backseat for a bit

My dear friend Ryan has gone MIA. I think he may just be hiding, or something may be wrong. I don’t know. He doesn’t answer his phone, and hasn’t responded on facebook, twitter, or pownce. I think its because I’ve been pushing to hard to try and get txtbasket up and running. So next week I think I’ll go back to working almost full time at my other job and make some extra cash and possibly put up a $100 bounty for someone to create a “complete n00bz guide to setting up stet”, licensing it CC BY-SA, and posting it to the wiki (txtbasket.info). when I come up with the cash that will be the bounty so anyone out there who wants to get a head start can.
