You can read my Spring06 LSTU-E120 midterm paper on iTunesU here (synopsis: DRM and Archiving are fundamentally incompatible) and my final paper on NetNeutrality here (synopsis: ISP bitstream intrusion invalidates the Safe Harbour rationale). You can read my final paper for MUSI-E145 on "The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld" here. I (may) be speaking in Novembers B School Cyberposium on an Open Source Panel/roundtable.

Note: Ultraworld is being actively edited so go to the history to see the "ezi" edits.

Moodle Description: Whet my appetite with the Sinclair Spectrum, Vic 20 and Amiga in the 80s before discovering VAX, AIX, SUNOS and JANET and GOPHER. BBS and MUDder of old, occassionaly DAoC and WoW Shard player, more of a tourist really these days. Picked up an NDS at Xmas. I've enjoyed hacking and programming for it but need a new toy these days, maybe the new Mindstorms...
