Conventioneering.

Last night, the anual convention of the American Counsel of the Blind started. I think I’ve listened almost every year since 2012, and this year is no exception.

L is for lots of things.

Lol, too many to name just one thing. I’m going to put these in the order they’re in in my text file. First is Lavabit, an email service in the process of being resurrected. Today is the 3 year anniversary of that 41 page Fourth Circuit ruling. I still remember what I was doing 3 … [Read more…]

They were all chanting “roll call!” They had to do the vote a second time, and to me it was still indiscernible, but the chair overruled them … [Read more…]

Conventioning again!

It’s that time again! Time for the ACB convention! It actually started tonight, at 5:00 PDT. Luckily for me, it’s in Minneapolis, which is on Central time. Since last year’s convention was in Dallas, and I’m very familiar with central time, it just seems to work well for me. I also was able to find … [Read more…]
