www.thegeeksmack.com - The start to this week has been a slow one. This is due to an extended weekend in playing. Motivation seems to be a drink that I need right now. I got the Korg Kontrol this last week and have been playing with Wirecast to try and make the show a little smoother. Almost lost it in the 25 minute mark as all the buttons started to converge on at once. See the debauchery!

Paul Ceglia Contract Found
I love nostalgia! When I was a kid, the Pet Rock was a big fad. We even sold our own Pet Rocks at flea markets (although we didn’t make anything close to the actual pet rock). But now it’s back and it’s joined Technology with the USB Pet Rock! But when you get tired from playing with your Pet Rock, you might want to lie down. Why not on this Moon Pillow. Want some Cake? How about in the shape of Thor or Wolverine. Check out the Marvel Character Cake Molds?Geek Smack! Geek News:
Mixology - Dylan’s Candy Bar Candied Cocktails
Thirteen Chinese political prisioners are being held captive – some are being beaten – because of a program called “Golden Shield”. This is a system that identifies radicals in the CCP for arrest. The system was developed by Cisco after they won several contract bids to design, develop and implemet part of the project.
Because of this, most of the thirteen are serving 10 year or more sentences. Now they believe they can sue Cisco for creating Golden Shield (Read: Fighting China’s Golden Shield). That is like saying you are suing a carpenter for building your house because the Fire department didn’t get you out when it burnt to the ground.
Add to it an International lawsuit – this situation is going to get really sticky, really fast.
