  1. You’re makin’ me hungry!

    Margaret, I’ve just got to take this moment to tell you I love the way you write. I’ve been a fan from the first moment I saw you -years ago! – head thrown back, calling “Mor-an!” as you did that funny bit about your mother. I could go on and on with lists of all the cleverness I love about you! But you’d get bored, so I’d just like to say I’m thrilled to find your blog and grateful for the chance to read and comment, and then fall back into the Cho-ranks, shakin’ my booty to your divinely different drumming!

    Just think. Five minutes ago you didn’t even know I existed. I love the internet.

  2. It is not true and not good to catch some criminals by offending and sacrificing the liberty and affairs of so many non-guilty people around the world. Furthermore, it is unethical and illegal to create a national law to put foundation for and justify such act. It is unethical to create a national law based upon the will of SOME corporations and for the sakes of SOME corporations. If a law must be created, it must be created based upon THE REAL MAJOR PUBLIC WILL and for THE REAL WHOLE PUBLIC SAKE.
    Noteworthy, The Internet is not only the container of by-law-protected products, but also IS:
    1. The universal medium of the unlimited flow of thoughts from humans all over the world
    2. The universal place of unlimited thought-exchange and thought-sharing among humanity
    3. The universal channel of unlimited talk among humans all over the world
    4. The universal channel and virtual place of unlimited human encounter and human traffic
    Therefore, SOPA and PIPA absolutely can not be applied. SOPA and PIPA are a form of Egoistic-Will Enforcement.
    Moreover, products of companies have been protected by the existing laws of intellectual property. What is to do is just Law Enforcement based upon the existing laws.

  3. as someone who recognizes the degree to which intellectual property has been compromised and misused, there is plenty i understand about this “legislation”‘s source. yet, i LOVE your work plenty and i imagine that you enjoy earning a salary from your work to be able to frolic with people in los angeles and other places unlike the piece of shit project on which i’ve been involved that best described as human trafficking, junkies, crack heads, or cirrhosis and onions with religious intolerance. anyhow, being in western europe for just under a year with some radical faeries along with a variance of differing artists or farmers as well as a hodge podge of buddhists disregarding homophobia, racism, sexism, chauvinism, and trafficking, it has been amazing to be in the united states being reminded of the silliness that became a disease through the misuse of technology. having been also in geneva for human rights issues relating to homophobia in order to speak to people at the united nations as well as amnesty international, i forgot how colonial if not downright adolescent things can be on the internet since i have not been within its direct culture for several months…..once again being primarily in nature or with people face to face even though some were misusing/using technology while laying claim to having no signal. LOVE your work margaret but it’s amusing to see this rut of technology use, yet, the degree to which intercultural dialogue or exchange doesn’t occur. having worked in technology quite a bit, i recall when i returned to the states after living in asia for 2.5 years — japan was primarily sushi and anything else was a void relative to a larger culture. the internet has become that interpersonal void of non-productions where it’s incredibly adolescent in so many ways. LOVE your work — thanks for the laughs. the peanut gallery unrelated to your site always makes me laugh but not in a manner of comedy but a manner of arrested development and the innocuous void that has become the internet. thank you.

Have something to add?
