What was so great about Mewtwo, anyway.

Whatever makes him happy, really. If this is what Mewtwo’s been up to instead of mindlessly fighting- then cheers to ‘im.

I don’t care that no one in the US has heard of Doraemon, PLEASE bring this to North America. Even if you have to shoehorn in the voice of Rob Schneider or Drake Bell, I’d STILL watch this.

Uncle Kage – Furries and the Media

Great watch this. If you want to learn about how to deal with the Press and other negative neddies, this is an excellent crash course.

Furry fandom, in my opinion, is basically our fandom’s older brother. We’re not identical, but this video works very well for us as well.

(This is the video AskASaneBrony was talking about in his last post. Pretty good info and funny as well)

Chow woke up on Koopus's floor. Last night's date was a blue after the food was served. Chow thinks he ingested some bamboo.

The kappa’s apartment was quiet, the window was glowing with bright morning sunshine, the smells of their wok dinner still lingered in the air. A quick look around the single room told Chow that the professor was not in, but, getting up, the bear would register another thing. There was something… off about the surroundings, very off. Not only that, but something was wrong with Chow himself, or rather, his clothing.

The garments he’d slept in were quite a bit too big for him. The room itself seemed much larger than usual, but no- it was the same size as it had been thanks to his “renovations”, enlarging it to be more comfortable… or was it? The kappa’s belongings were what had grown. What had once seemed almost dwarf-like now looked almost normal, if a bit big for him to use. Waddling forward, having to tug and wrap his plus-sized clothing around him as not to trip on it, he’d come to work out what had happened:

The furniture hadn’t gotten bigger, his clothes hadn’t gotten larger, no; he’d gotten smaller. The room was back to it’s abysmally tiny size, presumably when he’d fallen asleep the magic he’d infused it with had worn off. But why was he smaller too? He had to find Koopus and figure this out!

He remembered the professor mention he had a drawing class this morning, in the studio where they’d set up the still life yesterday.

Chow didn’t really understand what was going on, but he didn’t really think this would be a problem for long. He decided to wait until Koopus made it back to the room to attempt to fix himself. He used his powers to adjust the size of his clothes in the meantime so he wouldn’t trip over himself.

The professor hadn’t mentioned how long his class was going to be, studio courses could be as long as 5 or 6 hours though. The analog clock, high on the mantle read somewhere between 8 and 8:30 AM, so it may have just started. The old building was creaky in the morning chill, the muffled drone of voices came from the floor below, and birds twittered sweetly from beyond the windowpanes. The world felt so much bigger from this vantage, he felt almost like a child looking around. Using the furniture as reference he’d estimate his new height being somewhere around 3 and a half feet.

It seemed Chow would be alone for quite awhile if he didn’t leave the apartment.

Chow tried to make himself bigger, but he could only manage to grow to about 5ft and he could barely keep himself that tall. This wouldn’t wear off for another 12 hours.

He decided to go find Koopus to get this reversed quicker. He left the room and locked the door with his magic. He sensed Koopus 2 floors down so he made his way to the class.

The building looked shockingly different from Chow’s fluctuating eye level, the narrow hallways were more comfortably spacious, and it was quite an experience to have to reach up to grasp doorknobs (even having to rise to tiptoe to manage it sometimes), the steep, rickety stairs were a chore with Chow’s shorter legs he’d find himself clutching at the handrail more than usual. Finally he managed to find the studio classroom where they’d built the still life the previous day. From within the sound of a spirited lecture echoed, the kappa seemed to be currently instructing.

Now the bear would be faced with a decision, would he interrupt, or sneak in and try to distract the professor, or would he try a different tactic.

25+ tech companies send letter to Senator Ron Wyden asking him to oppose any form of Fast Track for the TPP

fight4future:

More than 25 leading tech companies and start-ups have joined a public letter urging Senator Ron Wyden, the newly appointed Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, to firmly oppose any form of “fast track” authority for trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), and to demand transparency and an opportunity for public participation in negotiations that affect Internet freedom, free speech, and the tech economy.

Click here to see the full letter signed by more than 25 tech companies.

The signatories include well known tech companies like reddit, Automattic (WordPress.com), Imgur, DuckDuckGo, CREDO Mobile, BoingBoing, Thoughtworks, Namecheap, Fark, iFixit, and Cheezburger. Collectively, these companies represent the interests of millions of users in the United States and around the world. In the letter, the companies outline how the technology industry, from entrepreneurs and engineers all the way to consumers, could be harmed by “fast tracked” trade agreements that contain unbalanced copyright and innovation policy frameworks.

“These highly secretive, supranational agreements are reported to include provisions that vastly expand on any reasonable definition of ‘trade,’ including provisions that impact patents, copyright, and privacy in ways that constrain legitimate online activity and innovation,” the companies write. The letter continues: “Our industry, and the users that we serve, need to be at the table from the beginning,” which has not been the case with TPP negotiations.

Meanwhile, in Portland, OR…

The delivery of the letter coincided with an event outside Senator Wyden’s office in Portland, OR, where Fight for the Future and a coalition of advocacy groups delivered more than 13,686 signatures to the Senator also asking him to oppose any form of Fast Track authority.  During the action they urged him to oppose the renewal of 1970s-era trade legislation, which they say threatens Oregon high-tech jobs, digital privacy and freedom on the Internet. The signatures will be adhered to hundreds of floppy disks with the message “Fast Track is obsolete technology.”

Full text of the letter and list of signers:

Dear Senator Ron Wyden,

Congratulations on your recent appointment as Chair of the Senate Finance Committee. As technology companies with business models inextricably linked to the Internet, we admire your work as a staunch defender of users and online rights—most prominently when you led the fight against SOPA and PIPA in Congress.

Today we write about another emerging front in the battle to defend the free Internet—massive trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership. These highly secretive, supranational agreements are reported to include provisions that vastly expand on any reasonable definition of “trade,” including provisions that impact patents, copyright, and privacy in ways that constrain legitimate online activity and innovation. We applaud your prior efforts as Senator to bring transparency and public participation to trade negotiations. We strongly urge you to uphold and expand this dedication into your new role.

None of the usual justifications for trade negotiation exclusivity apply to recent agreements like the TPP. Even assuming that it is legitimate to shield the discussions of certain trade barriers—like import tariffs—from political interference, the provisions in these new trade agreements go far beyond such traditional trade issues.

Based on what we’ve seen in leaked copies of the proposed text, we are particularly concerned about the U.S. Trade Representative’s proposals around copyright enforcement. Dozens of digital rights organizations and tens of thousands of individuals have raised alarm over provisions that would bind treaty signatories to inflexible digital regulations that undermine free speech. Based on the fate of recent similar measures, it is virtually certain that such proposals would face serious scrutiny if proposed at the domestic level or via a more transparent process. Anticipated elements such as harsher criminal penalties for minor, non-commercial copyright infringements, a ‘take-down and ask questions later’ approach to pages and content alleged to breach copyright, and the possibility of Internet providers having to disclose personal information to authorities without safeguards for privacy will chill innovation and significantly restrict users’ freedoms online.

Some aspects of U.S. copyright law, such as the DMCA’s safe harbor provisions, have helped foster the vibrant tech industry in this country. But in other areas, we are due for major reforms—a fact made clear by Register of Copyrights Maria Pallante’s call for the “Next Great Copyright Act” and the House Judiciary Committee’s efforts to implement that reform. In light of these needed revisions, the U.S. system cannot be crystallized as the international norm and should not be imposed on other nations. It is crucial that we maintain the flexibility to re-evaluate and reform our legal framework in response to new technological realities. Ceding national sovereignty over critical issues like copyright is not in the best interest of any of the potential signatories of this treaty.

We can only build a successful innovation policy framework—one that supports new ideas, products, and markets—if the process to design it is open and participatory. Unfortunately, the trade negotiation process has been anything but transparent. Our industry, and the users that we serve, need to be at the table from the beginning to design policies that serve more than the narrow commercial interests of the few large corporations who have been invited to participate.

We urge you not to pass any version of Fast Track or trade promotion authority, or approve any mechanism that would facilitate the passage of trade agreements containing digital copyright enforcement provisions designed in an opaque, closed-door process.

As the new Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, you are in a position to shape U.S. policy to keep this country a place where innovation thrives. We look forward to your continued dedication to the interests of technology and its users.

Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely,

Amara
