I just checked my email, and this message was waiting for me:
Wow. We just won.
From the Associated Press:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he was postponing a test vote set for Tuesday "in light of recent events."
So, in other words, because of all of us. Absolutely amazing.
Demand Progress has been fighting this legislation for more than a year -- having grown from nothing to over one million members during that period.
We rely on those members to fund our (2-person) operation -- are you able to help out?

Even the Motion Picture Association's Chris Dodd is awed by what just happened. Here's what he said yesterday:
“This is altogether a new effect,” Mr. Dodd said, comparing the online movement to the Arab Spring. He could not remember seeing “an effort that was moving with this degree of support change this dramatically” in the last four decades, he added.
Thanks so much for your work on this. Will you consider a donation to Demand Progress so we can keep up the fight the next time the Internet comes under attack?

Yeah. That's pretty good. Now for some news.
You may have heard about Apple recent announcement of iBooks 2 and iBooks author.
Well, right now, I'm porting an abridged version of the Beethovenist Bible (and the Kikiwa Theorem Wiki) into an iBooks Author Project. It's sort of like a textbook, but it has questions and stuff. If you're hoping study Beethovenism. I'm sort of thinking of it as like a companion the Beethovenist Bibbl. And actually, I think the iBook might get finished first, because in the Bibbl, there are some really long sections of narrative storytelling, whereas the textbook is pure information (mostly).
