Judge Chin Has Great Timing!

Frustrated judge pushes Google digital book deal

A Manhattan federal judge set a September 15 deadline for Google Inc, authors and publishers to come up with a legal plan to create the world’s largest digital library, expressing frustration that the six-year-old dispute has not been resolved.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

What happened on that date in 2008? Let’s see one headline that appeared on September 16th:

Nice timing, Judge Chin. How very apt.

Connect With Me On Spotify

Type:

into the Spotify search bar and it will bring up my Profile showing all my public Playlists.

My Playlists aren’t really that. I never listen to a list of music. My Playlists are more like bookshelves and I pick a song to listen to.

Anyway, leave your Spotify username in Comments so I can connect too. I need music I’ve never heard before chosen by people who listen to it! (How’s that for an Ed Wood Jr. line?)

Update: In order for this to work, you must enable Social on Spotify and also make your Playlists public. It’s only music! We don’t judge.

This Is How Pottersville Began

SF To Shutter Courtrooms; Lay Off 200 Workers

The San Francisco Superior Court announced Monday that it’s laying off more than 40 percent of its staff and shuttering 25 courtrooms because of budget cuts.

Presiding Judge Katherine Feinstein said the actions were necessary to close a $13.75 million budget deficit caused by state budget cuts. She said the cuts mean it will take many more hours to pay a traffic ticket in person, up to 18 months to finalize a divorce and five years for a lawsuit to go to trial.

“The civil justice system in San Francisco is collapsing,” Feinstein said.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
