Normally I'd be trying to think of ways to improve game making on a night like tonight, but guys times are getting downright scary. Minnesota just passed a bill mandating that all new cell phones sold in the state have a kill switch. The EU just passed a bill (how does it do that? how do you protest?) forcing Google to remove, on request, search results for "private" information made public. And the FCC appears ready to permit the marketing of our collective access to websites.

So we have a situation where:
1) the government can kill your phone on a whim.
2) Any member of this site can force Bjorn to take down anything they've posted.
3) your ISP is likely to request additional fees if you start a successful internet-based business.

I look at all this action, all taking shape at the same time, and all I can see is a broad-based international conspiracy to reshape the internet as we know it.
