A Real First-Class News Experience

Now, I’m not a die-hard ‘information wants to be free’ crusader, and I really don’t have a problem with paying a reasonable fee for media that I’m interested in. However, I do want to be able to _use_ the information that I pay for, and a specialized system is _not_ something I’m willing to pay for. Give me text on a webpage, RSS feeds for my newsreader…information I can _use_, not something that locks it away.

My First and Only Online Handle

I’m actually kind of lucky in this respect. I’ve only ever used one online handle, and while I’ve deprecated it a bit these days in favor of my real name, I still actively use it as a login name and occasional identifier. Most anyone who’s interacted with me online for any appreciable amount of time will recognize my online alias of djwudi.
