Take WiFi With You on the Go.
> Karma Go grabs a cellular connection out of thin air and turns it into your own personal WiFi signal, anywhere you are. Genius.

Karma Go seems to work all around the LFK area and SWMO. Could be a great solution for traveling.

One big reason we lack Internet competition: Starting an ISP is really hard | Ars Technica
> "One of the problems with Lawrence is we've never received a single dollar in economic development money, not a single penny," he said. "I love my home town, but it is a very difficult place to do new and innovative things."

Lawrence Freenet is a non-profit.

From: http://www.lawrenceks.org/assets/agendas/cc/2008/01-29-08h/lawrence_freenet_kids_proposal.pdf

> "It has always been the philosophy of Lawrence Freenet that municipal funds are best spent on core city services such as utilities, traffic control, law enforcement, public transit and emergency services. In continuing with this ideal, Freenet is not seeking any public funds to expand the project."

When I want a loan I go to the bank. When Freenet / Wicked wants a loan they whine about it online and try to get the city of Lawrence to give it to them. *golf claps*

Out of Osama's Death, A Fake Quotation is Born - Megan McArdle - National - The Atlantic
"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy." - Martin Luther King, Jr

I've seen this quote a dozen+ times today. Interestingly enough, MLK never said it.

Why do we have an IMG element? [dive into mark]
"HTML has always been a conversation between browser makers, authors, standards wonks, and other people who just showed up and liked to talk about angle brackets. Most of the successful versions of HTML have been “retro-specs,” catching up to the world while simultaneously trying to nudge it in the right direction. Anyone who tells you that HTML should be kept “pure” (presumably by ignoring browser makers, or ignoring authors, or both) is simply misinformed. HTML has never been pure, and all attempts to purify it have been spectacular failures, matched only by the attempts to replace it."

DecentURL.com
While I like the simplicity of TinyUrl I hate the lack of meaning. This variation looks similar to how Django encourages meaningful urls.
