LOTD: 9/2/07

  • Some in the German government want to be able to use trojan horses to “spy” in suspected terrorists in the country. Umm, yeah. Not to defend terrorists or anything, but do we really want to go here? (TB)
  • Last week, Matt Mullenweg posted browser stats for wordpress.com-hosted sites, with 30.74% of visitors using Firefox, and about 6.73% using Macintosh OSes. While I think the latter seems lower than I would have presumed (that’s just based on the number of Macs I’m seeing in airports these days), the former was enough to get the folks at SpreadFirefox to notice. (TB)
  • I’m happy to see that Seth Goding dropped a bomb tonight on Quechup, which is handling things in a pretty shady way, from what my Web pals are saying tonight. (TB)
  • The Guardian Unlimited‘s Robert McCrum writes about how George Orwell may have been a blogger were he doing his thing today, but he would probably be “appalled by the writing.” Nuff said. (TB)
