My you-tube video of Charlie's first steps just got disabled due to copyright infringement (the video has a 30 second clip of Fats Domino's "I'm Walking").

I took the time to send in a dispute citing the four factors of fair use, so we'll see what happens. In my comments I told them I was pretty sure Fats Domino would have no issue with it.

I'm pretty sick of the RIAA running the world.

Starting another camping trip this weekend... hope the weather gets better. It is supposed to get really cold... and right now the wind is really bad!

Another good camping day today, but the burn ban is still in place so no campfire :(

I'm at lake texana with neo right now. He has his headlight flashlight he got from cub scouts on and is reading one of his favorite books. Life is good.

I've been using twitter lately. And I'm also watching the launch of discovery tonight. And I'm wondering, why don't astronauts twitter from space? It would be great if crew members on the ISS would use twitter to post blurbs about their experience. What a great way to engage the public, particularly the youth, and also get positive public attention.

It will happen I'm sure, but I wonder who will be the first.
