tech & art news for August 9

hi folks,

"Cindy Sheehan" continues to dominate the technorati search charts today. Other noteworthy search terms today include "Bush Indictment" and "Oil". I am looking for "VietRaq" to pop up next.

Yahoo headlines today featured a story about some bad blood between CNet and Google, a storyI first read about in Slashdot about a week ago. Long story short: CNet called attention to some instances in which mammoth search utility is a little bit too robust, if not downright invasive, and Google got mad.

Looks like Google isn't the sacred cow it used to be.

In art news, Joe Kelley's work will be in the "Stick to Your Guns" exhibit opening this Friday in Roanoke. See the Scratch House News for more info on this. It sounds like it will be a great exhibit.

Also here is a funny comic by Matt Bors called A Quick Guide to Mountaintop Removal.

Have a great day. Thanks for reading. --Suzy
