Back from testifying at DMCA 1201 circumvention hearings

It's been a l-o-n-g day, traveling to and from DC to testify about censorware at the Copyright Office circumvention hearings

One cab ride to the airport at 4:30 am ... $30
One plane ride Boston -> DC ... $123
One plane ride DC -> Boston ... $141
One hour of testimony (well, two) ... not quite priceless

[But the feeling of out-testifying David Burt (the PR rep of the censorware company N2H2) was worth a few of those bucks]

More later, after I get some sleep ... 22 hours awake today. Not the worst I've ever done, but I'm getting old.
