07/03/2003 Archived Entry: "Ifeminist BB is closed"
I write today's blog with mixed emotions. I closed down the ifeminist BB a few days ago. I delayed pulling the plug for weeks even tho' I was/am certain it was/is the proper course; given sharply increased writing demands, I have to start budgeting the hours and half-hours in my day with a miserliness usually displayed by Leprechauns with pots of gold coin. The BB was a volunteer effort for me and for Brad, who served as tech support/co-moderator, and we have run out of hours in the day. As of Monday, the BB was "officially" closed...to a large degree, a victim of its own success.
Fav site de jour Orwell Today. It is well worth the browse.
Fav cartoons: Proposed Iraq Memorial by Mike Luckovich; and, EZ Clean by Mark Fiore.
Fav email: "The proposed "Eldred Act" would potentially curtail the duration of copyrights by requiring copyright holders to pay a nominal fee (~$1) fifty years after the copyright was registered; if they fail to do so, (presumably because the work no longer has economic value), the work would automatically go over into the public domain. See for details. There is an online petition supporting the "Eldred Act."
Best to all,
