Mind Camp 6.0 Sponsor: Minds + Machines

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sponsors,

Minds + MachinesWe always says that local happenings like Seattle Mind Camp rely on the kindness of local companies to make the events a success, and we want to give a thank you to Seattle’s Mind + Machines for being the first company to step in as a sponsor of Mind Camp 6.0. We asked them to tell us a bit about their company:

Starting a new top level domain?  We can help.  We will guide you from application to approval to operations, with expert assistance at every step. We work with corporate, geographical, market-niche, and not-for-profit TLDs.  Espresso, our registry platform, offers low flat-rate pricing, a low annual minimum, flexible contract terms, and a built-in sales channel to all the top domain registrars.  We currently help operate over a dozen ccTLDs, have decades of experience, and are a Seattle company.  Meet Jothan Frakes, COO of Minds + Machines at MindCamp 6, he’s glad to answer questions about domain names and share his experience with fellow attendees.

Awesome. Be sure to say “Hi!” to Jothan at Mind Camp, and again, big thanks to Minds + Machines.

Werd: Thanks - Part One

Posted by Patrick Snajder Categories: Editorials, History, Videos,

This week’s invocation for the Werd is William S. Burroughs reciting his poem “Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, 1986” (Gus Van Sant directed the video):

And the text to follow along:

Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, 1986

Thanks for the wild turkey and
the passenger pigeons, destined
to be #### out through wholesome
American guts.


Thanks for a continent to despoil
and poison.

Thanks for Indians to provide a
modicum of challenge and
danger.

Thanks for vast herds of bison to
kill and skin leaving the
carcasses to rot.

Thanks for bounties on wolves
and coyotes.

Thanks for the American dream,
To vulgarize and to falsify until
the bare lies shine through.

Thanks for the KKK.

For nigger-killin’ lawmen,
feelin’ their notches.

For decent church-goin’ women,
with their mean, pinched, bitter,
evil faces.

Thanks for “Kill a Queer for
Christ” stickers.

Thanks for laboratory AIDS.

Thanks for Prohibition and the
war against drugs.

Thanks for a country where
nobody’s allowed to mind the
own business.

Thanks for a nation of finks.

Yes, thanks for all the
memories—all right let’s see
your arms!

You always were a headache and
you always were a bore.

Thanks for the last and greatest
betrayal of the last and greatest
of human dreams.

Tatum O’Neal Thanks Police Who Arrested Her

Tatum thanks cops, blames dog's deathAfter spending Sunday night in jail following her arrest for purchasing crack and cocaine, former Dancing With the Stars contestant Tatum O’Neal was released from court yesterday. Shockingly, her first remarks were thank yous… to the police who arrested her!

Claiming sobriety, the New York City jail survivor gratefully thanked her law enforcers for keeping her that way: “Just when I was about to change that and wreck my life, the cops came and saved me! I was saved by the bell, by the guys in the Seventh Precinct.”

What I’m wondering was whether or not she was truly sober, thinking we would actually believe that she thanked those cops from the bottom of her heart. Then again, she may very well have been smart enough to learn from her fellow jailbird celebrities and look pretty good whilst being sprung from the can.

Testing Our New Server Setup - You Can Help!

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Announcements, Videos,

Hey guys - so, in preparation for the holiday rush, with CES following afterwards, we have upgraded our server configuration. We are now hoping to stress-test the hell out of it to make sure all is well. This is where you guys come in.

We recently posted our video featuring the launch day of Nintendo Wii, which you can check out here. The video is linked to on Digg, and we are asking all of you to Digg it if you enjoy the video. If we make it to the front page of Digg, we can monitor what the huge traffic spike does to the servers, and can then adjust accordingly. Are you in?

If so, please head on over to Digg, and Digg this.

So, watch the video, and if you like it, Digg it. It will help us out more than you know, and have us fully prepared for CES 2007.

Thanks again everyone!
