I've been following the recordingindusvspeop feed and saw that the proposed jury questionnaire for SONY BMG Music Entertainment v. Tenenbaum was posted. ( http://beckermanlegal.com/pdf/?file=/Lawyer_Copyright_Internet_Law/sony_tenenbaum_090722Questionnaire.pdf )

Being a curious sort, I took a look and was amused by the some of the questions. Okay, one in particular --

DO YOU USE THE INTERNET ON A REGULAR BASIS? _____ YES _____ NO
IF SO, LIST ANY WEB SITES YOU VISIT REGULARLY

(with the remainder of the second line and one additional blank line to fit in your answers). I'd need *way* more than 1.3 lines to answer that. Just off the top of my head: livejournal, dreamwidth, digifree, yahoo, msnbc.com, detnews.com, DivineDigital, BoingBoing, slashdot, ScienceDaily, imdb, ditb, woot, google. And that's just the shorthand, not the full URLs. Not to mention LJ, DW, and digifree are themselves gateways to other webpages -- I'd need lots of paper if I had to write down the full URL of every website I visited during a typical day.

I think I'm going to have to create a poll over on LJ; it seems DW doesn't have that capability yet. (For the record, I'm extremely pleased with DW and am willing to cut them lots of slack as they improve the code and add features.)

I'd need 30 just for webcomics, another 15 for sites I generally read via RSS. Can't forget cheeseburger, hotdog and fail (and sometimes others from that group). DPReview, BikeForums (trying to eliminate BF from my diet akshualy). I only really watch LJ for friends sites, though I toy with Twitter. And I'm sure I'm forgetting a bunch.

DreamWidth. Yet another site my friends are talking about, and I'm avoiding because I don't need even more time suck in my day.

DW is DreamWidth, another social networking site -- mostly like LJ, but without the corporate overlords of LiveJournal or the infrastructure limitations of InsaneJournal, and using a newer codebase than either.

DreamWidth -- LJ's newest rival/alternative.
