Rogue archivist Carl Malamud writes, "Public.Resource.Org is pleased to announce the launch of the 2014 Official Summer of Code!
We've selected 3 states -- Georgia, Idaho, and Mississippi -- and are raising funds
to have the Official Legal Codes sent down to the Internet Archive to be scanned and made
available to all. Your tax-deductible contribution can help make the law available to
the people! Find out more at: YesWeScan.Org/
The 2014 Official Summer of Code got started on March 15, 2014 when we sent notice out to
our specially selected jurisdictions, inviting their comments with a Proclamation of
Promulgation. Copies of this Request for Comment were also made available to federal government officials
and members of the mainstream media. We're still hoping these states will talk with us and
hold hearings on the important issue of making the official laws available to their citizens.
Joining our 3 special states this summer is our Nation's Capitol, the District of Columbia.
We've obtained all the Official Codes going back to 1940 and we're wanting to scan them
and put them all on-line. This effort dovetails nicely with the amazing effort volunteers
have done to create the unofficial DCcode.Org site
by making all the historical and current Official Codes available for them to link to. Kudos to DC's General
Counsel V. David Zvenyach for having supported and encouraged the DC Code effort!
Support the 2014 Summer of Code!

These Japanese robots’ performance of “Robot’s Delight” — an extended, braggadocios riff on the state of AI learning-through-imitation research, with break-dancing — won Best Video at the 2017 ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human Robot Interaction. (via 4 Short Links)
Thread count isn’t like one of those deceiving metrics like camera megapixels or Facebook friends—more threads are always better if you can afford them. If price was no object, we would all be snoozing soundly bundled up in 1.8 kilo-thread sheets every single night. Guess what? Price doesn’t have to be an object with this […]
Maybe it’s entirely because of podcast ads, but drag-and-drop tools like Squarespace have gotten immensely popular in recent years. While it’s definitely a great tool for any non-coders who want to get a small website up and running quickly, managing content with a primarily visual interface can become a pain once you have more than […]
When you can’t wait for the world’s longest meeting to end, the mindless leg bouncing makes your boredom obvious and just annoys everybody else. Everyone knows the TPS reports need the damn cover sheet, but some sadistic colleague keeps forgetting, probably on purpose just to eat into your lunch hour. Enough is enough!While serving a […]
