Radio DJ's and Freedom of Expression Types - The FCC has managed to re-assert itself as the collectively ass-backwards and reactionary collective of fucktards we have come to love and respect, if by love and respect you mean loathe and disdain.
Nothing gets me hotter (in a strictly digital/cyberspace sense, of course) than people who do music on the Wired the right way. Cue Audio Lunchbox - indie artists you may have heard of, and some mainstream people there for reasons I can't quite explain. Artists include (list parsed for bands I thought certain people might find interesting): Bad Religion, Collide, Cradle of Filth, Dropkick Murphys, Eddie Izzard (Circle - Who knew?), Junky XL, NOFX, Rancid, Rasputina. No DRM attached. I encourage those of you who are so inclined to browse by label. Also, is anybody familiar with a band called Wu-Tang Killer Bees? That sounds just a little odd.
Commander Python/Josiah/chouyu_31 - check out Soekris Engineering if you have not already. These people look like they're kicking some serious ass, in a "making old hardware in a better way" kind of way.
