Vashon Island

We took the ferry to Vashon Island, stayed overnight at AYH Ranch Hostel (recommended!), slept in a tipi, and saw a herd of exercise machines.

It is America's Birthday

Our son made this song up while lying in bed on July 4 when he was 5. We listened and recorded it over the baby monitor. He'd never sang it before or since, but he does like to hear the recording. One of our friends suggested we share it for the 4th...so here it is!

Oh, the video is some random thing I found on the intertubes. It's from sUPERED. http://blip.tv/file/931317/ Isn't Creative Commons-remix licensing a beautiful thing? Uh, yeah. And thanks, sUPERED!

Mamas say the darndest things

"Isaac! That's not a toy!"

said Melissa, scolding Isaac for fiddling with...
...a Nintendo Wii video game steering wheel controller.
"Well, it's expensive electronic equipment!"

said Melissa, trying and failing to defend herself, after Dan, Zeb and Isaac burst into uncontrollable laughter.

Apple sez jailbreaking iPhones is illegal and should be banned - Boing Boing

Apple may be following the law correctly here. This is just the latest in a long line of examples proving that the law has reproducible bugs and needs to be patched.
Apple sez jailbreaking iPhones is illegal and should be banned - Boing Boing

Jailbreaking an iPhone constitutes copyright infringement and a DMCA violation, says Apple in comments filed with the Copyright Office as part of the 2009 DMCA triennial rulemaking. This marks the first formal public statement by Apple about its legal stance on iPhone jailbreaking.

Apple's iPhone, now the best-selling cellular phone in the U.S., has been designed with restrictions that prevent owners from running applications obtained from sources other than Apple's own iTunes App Store. "Jailbreaking" is the term used for removing these restrictions, thereby liberating your phone from Apple's software "jail." Estimates put the number of iPhone owners who have jailbroken their phones in the hundreds of thousands.
Regardless of the validity of Apple's legal position (IANAL, check Groklaw if you want an informed legal opinion) Apple is NOT doing the right thing here to be lobbying to keep bugs in place.

I say this as a long time Apple individual user, customer, evangelist, and enterprise user.

And I say this as a citizen of the USA, and of the Internet, and of the world:

Apple, cut it out!

What Apple should do is NOT lobby to make it illegal to run whatever software you want on a computer you bought from Apple. (Of course Apple has no responsibility to support you if you go hacking on their software and muck it up.)

Freedom to tinker!

Free culture!

Quiet Please notes from Zeb

Kids go to bed. Parents have friends come over, play Rock Band. Kid very politely delivers letters of complaint.

First note: "I can NOT sleep. Ssssssssh. Thak you. From Zeb." Second note: "Hey. Im tired. Dudes. From Zeb."

Throw rocks into water, observe ripples

Met up with Margaret F at Magnuson Park for an afternoon of play and picture-taking.

The old classic "throw rocks into water" proved its appeal remains intact even for these newfangled kids.

Magnuson Park


We also saw a pitched swordfight between armor-plated knights and fiercely menacing brigands, but I didn't get any pictures of that. Margaret did....
