In my mind The Stupidity of New York’s Long, Expensive and Ongoing War on Graffiti and How The Legal System Failed Aaron Swartz seem closely related.
Both seem to ultimately be stories about how authorities overreact to subversive cultural movements by artistic, creative youth.
I have no problem believing this. And the whole “war on youth counterculture” thing is extremely relevant to what we’re facing in my own city right now.

Never. I have never stopped.
Today’s fresh hell was somewhat expected, but no less devastating. I borked my MacBook doing some cowboy OS upgrade shit that will probably not be fixable, but at least I had backed up the majority of my files before doing it, and a very robust Dropbox folder of my most important stuff. Nonetheless, it sucks deeply and thoroughly, the only saving grace being the elderly iPhone I acquired recently (which I have yet to turn into a phone… because I was waiting on the OS upgrade to my MacBook that I couldn’t perform with my busted DVD drive) and the “move it and the screen goes black” PC laptop my roommate has graciously loaned me.
I had a big day today (more in subsequent posts) which took my mind well off things, so I’m just going to stay cool for now and focus on the positive.
I knew my roasting pork would bring you luck!
