[cn: suicide]

Orin Kerr is one of the few lawyers in the country who has been both a prosecutor and a defense attorney for IP and privacy related cases involving the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and the Wire Fraud statutes. He defended Lori Drew in United States v. Drew (you might remember the case as involving the girl who committed suicide after getting bullied on MySpace and the government prosecuting the mother under this act for violating the TOS of MySpace) and, despite his presence on a libertarian-to-conservative legal blog, has no dog in this race. In fact, he's been calling for re-writing the CFAA for more than two years now, because he dislikes how vague it has become.

I highly recommend reading his extremely even-handed treatment of the case. It gets a tad legalese-y, because the main audience of the websites is lawyers, law professors, and law students, but it contains some very important information.

Part 1: The Charges
Part 2: The Prosecutor's Actions

And, as a bonus, Kerr's work on the CFAA.

The articles are not perfect; he falls into a couple of logical fallacies, but they do not invalidate his main argument. He apparently doesn't know literally everything there is to know about how JSTOR works, but he knows a lot more about how the CFAA is charged than anyone else on the planet.

I'm out of town visiting family (yes, still) so really, if you posted something, there's probably a 90% chance I missed it.

I wrote about 130,000 words this year, which is kind of strange, considering that around May or June I was thinking this would be my least-productive year ever. Lots of new fandoms, and I love all of them.

I've got awesome New Year's plans, although the person I specifically came into town to see won't be there, alas, but there's everyone else and booze and whatnot. I might do an actual meme later but I don't have the brain for it right now.

(The family-visiting has been fairly decent but it's stressful no matter what. *shrugs* I conked out for about 2-3 hours this afternoon and I don't regret a moment of it.)

Hope everyone's having a fabulous time, or at least that you haven't had your power go out during a snowstorm.

I don't suppose anyone's up for a quick beta and/or Britpick on a 00Q BDSM (whipping) fic? Don't need to know canon in particular.

sconesforjustice is me. Feel free to follow or not.

NB: It's not any sort of political statement, really; it's a long inside joke I'll explain eventually, because otherwise it's a spoiler for a story that hasn't been posted yet.

I like scones.

I just found about 1500 words I wrote to the purported sequel to For You I Came This Far, aka Epic Pike/Winona, and I have basically no memory of writing it at all.

It doesn't totally suck, though, and if I can find the threads of what I was doing--well, okay, the connected scenes are basically all sex and I'm afraid it may bleed over with some of the postscripts for Make Me Believe (aka Epic Pike/McCoy) if I continue.

So if not, I may just clean it up and assign it WIP Amnesty status. I don't know.

Do you want late-Victorian Avengers steampunk/gaslight fantasy with atmospheric worldbuilding and tantalizing glimpses of the world beyond just our two characters (Natasha and Clint)?

Yes, you do.

Here. Natasha/Clint, R, about 3300 words, written for me by an anon at the [ profile] avengersfest comm.

Wow, the writers seem to be shipping Ziva and Tony really hard, don't they? Not that they haven't been going for this since she showed up, but still. I'm kinda thinking this means they're getting towards the end of the show's run, or they just wouldn't let that happen. Or maybe I've just been irrevocably scarred by Aaron Sorkin. (Probably that.)

Don't get me wrong, I don't not ship Tony/Ziva, but it's kind of . . . brick-to-the-head-y.

circ_bamboo: (awesome)
Due to some poorly-thought-out clicking on my part, I get emails from (look, I really wanted to see the camera-lens-shaped coffee mug, okay?) and yesterday the headline was something about Fangirl Fashion.

Well, okay, I'm a fangirl, I guess (some days I prefer 'fanpoodle' because it's less gendered). So I clicked, and ended up looking at some kind of neat Princess Leia hoodies, complete with ear-buns, but there was a quote from the person who started the company (Her Universe) that made me want to puke:

It's a fact that close to half of Sci-fi fans are female! Men no longer dominate this genre. There are a lot of girls who, just like me, have a Boba Fett-ish or secretly dream of being The Doctor's next companion. So I created Her Universe!
– Ashley Eckstein, Founder, Her Universe

Fuck no. I'm not a fangirl because I want to fuck the Leading Men. I'm a fangirl because I want to be a bounty hunter or a Time Lord. Or the captain of a starship.

*rage* *seethe* *boil*

SURPRISINGLY FOR SOME PEOPLE, it's the twenty-first century and women are allowed to do things now, like be CEOs of Fortune 500 companies or the Secretary of State or legitimate contenders for president or Supreme Court justices. Women can be the heroes of the story, not the fucking sidekick/love interest.

And they can do it with short hair, wearing cargo pants and tank tops, or they can do it in Chanel skirt suits and Louboutins, or anywhere in fucking between.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go write Natasha or Winona or Allison stepping on someone's face.

So instead of the Stevetasha porn I morally owe [ profile] taraljc, you get this. Thanks, brain.

Word Count: 900
Notes: Comes after/around I Bet His Mama Never Told Him Why, And When He Knows What He Wants, and And All His Presents. Someday I'll run out of lyrics to "Uptown Girl" and I'll have to stop writing this series.

JARVIS goes first. )

At the same time, the Avengers manage to reassemble as a team, rather than just as people. Pepper's there for all of it.
