I missed it, but it was great from what I've heard, they carry B&J ice
cream nearly everywhere now, we're talking HEB and Walmart in *Bastrop*
for godsakes. I'm sure you have it most places in mile-high-ville.

By the way, the web cam is recording a gorgeous Texas sunset right now
for those lucky enough to be viewing http://www.spring.com and seeing it
live.

What else is happening around Austin. I'll be back in December if not sooner.
Some friends of mine just got married (on a cruise) and are having a reception Nov. 1. I'd love to be in Austin for Halloween and at their reception. We'll see
plane tickets still have not started that merit system thing. Hell, I'd offer my drink serving services for free if they'd let me hop a plane. A temp flight
attendant if you will.

When are your winter holidays? Between Christmas and New Years.
Keeping trying for a better rate, that's way too high, maybe you
can do some clever routing and go through somewhere else, or get
a stopover to somewhere else and skip the somewhere else.

There are creative ways to finance travel!

The wife found this at school today, not sure to post or

[Front Page]

Who is David Cabral?


David Cabral is the beloved brother of Amanda and Mikey and also
the beloved son of Michael and Cynthia Cabral. My name is Michael
Angelo Cabral and the correct question is who was he? For in fact,
David is dead!! At only two years of age, his precious life was ripped
violently away from him and us on October 21, 1995. Not only was he
the victim of a violent, negligent crime; not only was he killed in public,
but the person responsible for his death remains "at large". This
person whose name is David Rudisill is not only "at large" but living
and working happily in Sugarland (Houston), Texas. He is suffering no
true repercussions for his negligence in the death of our son and
brother. The police know where he is. The courts know where he is.
The problem is the San Antonio Police Department have determined
with insubstantial reasons, that no crime was committed. That his
violent death was merely an accident. The fact is that David
Rudisill's full size pick-up truck completely left the paved road and
struck David Cabral killing him instantly. There were other injuries
incurred by the crime to me. The driver tried to avoid detection by lying
to the police and no alcohol blood, urine, or breath tests were given
to the responsible party, David Rudisill, not even a ticket.

Was it because the driver was White and my son was Chicano? Was it
because the criminal is rich and my family is poor? I really don't know.
I do know that we miss David every day. But if this could happen to my
son and my family, it could happen to you!!

Our case is currently on-going. The San Antonio Police Department
have yet to even attempt to charge anyone with this crime. Justice is
what I am after.

Please help!! Attention is what we need!!

Who is David Rudisill?


David Rudisill is an electrician/contractor of considerable means. He
lives in a one hundred and fifty thousand dollar home in Sugarland
Houston. He is a father, a husband, a hunter and as far as I know, he is
a regular citizen of the state. I do know something about David
Rudisill that you may not. David Rudisill is responsible for the
negligible death of my son David Antonio Cabral. Not only is he
responsible for his death, but also numerous injuries to me and my
family. This man has done his best to hide, side-step and buy his way out
of owning up to this crime. He has claimed bankruptcy, hidden assets,
and has acted as if this death has never happened. He knows that he
did and he is trying to get away with it without cost. If you think you
know him or if you thought you knew him, look at him again. Is he a man,
has he a conscience? I don't think so!

My name is Michael Angelo Cabral and David Cabral was my son. He
would be 3 years old, but instead he is dead. We are trying to bring as
much closure as possible to this tragedy. My family and I are asking
for justice and our best chance for this is through the people of this
state and the media. Please call or notify your local TV stations,
politicians or neighborhood affiliations. If you are a parent this
could happen to you and without change these words could be yours. If you
think you can help, please call me.

Subject: Conference on Computers, Freedom, & Privacy 1998
Reply-to: vtw-announce@vtw.org


The Eighth Annual Conference on Computers, Freedom, and Privacy - CFP98


It's been called a lot of things over the years, but it still remains the
one place where anyone, who is anyone, goes to immerse themselves in the
issues surrounding the health and viability of the Internet. Dubbed the
"Woodstock of online activism" by veteran attendee Simona Nass, it has been
the nexus of discussions of online privacy, free speech, and human rights.


If you work for a company in today's economy, these issues have relevance
to you. For three days, you can learn about the pressing, cutting-edge
issues that are developing today and will affect your future.


CFP is an intimate setting with the conference lasting throughout the
entire time you're not sleeping. With only a few hundred attendees every
years, the conference becomes more of a retreat where law enforcement
agents socialize with hackers. Last year saw advocates on both sides of
the Internet free speech debate socializing with each other during one of
the many spontaneous after-hours parties in the hotel.


Below you'll find stories from several members of our community who
continue to support and attend CFP. We hope to see you there! This year
promises to be just as much fun, with the panels touching on lots of great
topics, including privacy implications of biometrics, the Internet in
schools, the sale of government records, cryptography, medical records
privacy, link licenses, universal access, and library filtering.


In addition, there will be a moot court about suing spammers, and a mock
wiretap. You can't afford to miss it!


To register, simply go to the website at http://www.cfp98.org/ Also, the
program is there, and you can check out the issues that will be under
discussion!


Sincerely,


/s/

*** Stories from CFP veterans ***


Todd Lappin, Editor, Wired Magazine


While the panels at CFP '97 were very useful, the most worthwhile part of
the conference took place outside the meeting room -- and in the hot tub.
Each night during CFP 97, the hot tub at the Burlingame Hyatt became a
gathering place for cyberliberties advocates of all stripes -- from authors
Paulina Borsook and Ellen Ullman to Joseph Reagle from W3C and Jon
Lebkowsky from EF-Austin. The water was hot, the conversation was intense,
but the atmosphere was relaxed.



A. Michael Froomkin, Associate Professor of Law


CFP has great speakers. It has even better audience. The audience
congregates in the hallway; this makes for agonizing choices -- do you go
see that great debate in the ballroom, or say out here and pick up stuff
you would never hear anywhere else. I've tried it both ways, and still
can't make up my mind.


It's my one "won't miss" conference of the year.


Jon Lebkowsky, EF-Austin


My favorite story is from CFP '93, when an FBI agent pretending to be
a PC Week reporter asked Emmanuel Goldstein and I our opinion of the FBI
presentation.


CFP '93 was a great one for me...so much was coming together that
year. It
was the social aspect that I found most stimulating, the conference in the
hallways. That was the year that I interviewed Phil Zimmermann and Tom
Jennings...interviews that are still alive online.



Diana Jarvis, Counsel for VTW Center for Internet Education


Aside from the fact that CFP collects together the most wonderful and
interesting people I've ever met (and aside from the fact that the gagetry
on display is better than Comdex) and great thing about CFP is the way in
which the conference cuts through the hype. Take Information War -- only
at CFP did I hear people seriously and intelligently criticize the
military's hype about how the terrorists of the future will disable our
industrial infrastruture by pointing out that networks, powerlines,
broadcast communications etc. are much more robust and redundant than they
were in the 50's, 60's, and 70's and that those eras saw the multi-hour
blackouts, network outages during broadcast, etc. Everyone else merely
dutifully reports that our military tells us we must be prepared for this
great threat they've dreamed up to stop cutting military budgets.



Shabbir J. Safdar, Voters Telecommunications Watch


I remember first being introduced to the debate over "Who Owns The Law?",
about the issue of the ownership of legal decisions. Currently, West
Publishing holds the copyright on most of them, and there aren't really
any public domains sources for them. The moderator introduced the panel,
which included advocates from both sides, and then stepped out of the way.


I never realized debate was a full contact sport. About 45 minutes and a
whole lot of screaming later, it suddenly hit me that I had just had the
perfect crash course in the topic, and had gotten it from both sides.
I'd been able to watch advocates poke holes in each others' arguments,
then rebut them. Afterwards at one of the room parties that night, I was
able to sit and talk to one of the advocates at length.


That sort of intimacy is what makes CFP great for me, and I'll continue to
return every year for it.

And another event we'll run as a Spring webcam event:

To: Friends of the CyberOpera
Subject: Award-winning Cyberspace Opera to Perform in Austin, Texas

High brow, high tech, high Texas

CYBERSPACE and Austin, Texas -- The world's first tele-collaborative
Internet opera will burst into song on March 21st, 8:00 p.m. from the
McCullough Theater on The University of Texas at Austin campus. honoria in
ciberspazio, is the cyberopera recently selected as a semi-finalist by the
Global Information Infrastructure (GII) Arts and Entertainment Awards along
with ABCNEWS.com, ESPN SportsZone, and the Museum of Contemporary Art
Chicago.

Under the artistic direction of Bryan Green, virtual and sensually real
dancers tell the operatic story of hope-filled humans passionately attracted
to their digital lovers. The cyberopera is a tale of Internet love
incorporating high-tech stage sets and advanced Internet-based information
delivery systems driven by the opera's cyberspatial plot.

As a GII Semi-finalist, honoria in ciberspazio has been distinguished for
innovation, producing real and valuable results, and for powerfully
demonstrating the potential of the Internet that we hear so much about.
Vice president Al Gore has cited the GII Awards program "An innovation that
is vital to our country's future."

The cyberopera's original libretto integrates common and not-so-common
experiences of people who send their electronic avatars out onto the
Infobahn. The opera's content reflects the chaotic and emotional situations
that one finds in electronic social exchanges in virtual communities,
mailing lists, and chat rooms. Cyberopera impresaria, Madelyn Starbuck, also
known as honoria, tells us that operatic themes are all over cyberspace.
"There's deceit, transgender, mythmaking, drama, tragedy, and comedy," she
says.

"The opera's plot is a product of the highest and purest form of
collaboration" says the cyberopera's director of operations, Richard
MacKinnon, "by using electronic communication, it is blind to contributors'
location, appearance, politics, gender, ethnicity, sexual preference,
religion, or other lifestyle choices."

As an important high-technology hub, Austin is the perfect incubator for
this particular opera because the cyberopera is designed to celebrate the
social impact of rapidly evolving technologies. "We have brought opera to
the Internet," says Starbuck, "Now we are going to bring the Internet to the
opera."

MacKinnon and Starbuck are seeking to infuse the cyberopera's development
with venture capital and corporate sponsorship as each production showcases
high-tech information delivery in the service of high art.

The honoria in ciberspazio "Come to Me" aria, featuring soprano Janet
Davidson in the role of honoria, will be performed in conjunction with
Austin Dance Ensemble's collage of performative works. Tickets are available
through UTTM by calling 477-6060.

Since 1995, honoria in ciberspazio has benefited from The University of
Texas at Austin infrastructure to develop the cyberopera's design in which
electronic communication theory and high operatic standards are woven
together in an artistically innovative showcase for the rapidly changing
technological delivery of information. honoria in ciberspazio is currently
a non-profit project under the umbrella of Women and Their Work in Austin,
Texas. The target audience of honoria in ciberspazio encompasses anyone who
has ever fallen in love.

Dear Friends:

We are writing to you about our friend Jan Reid. If you haven't already
heard about the tragedy in Mexico, Jan and three friends were in a cab in
Mexico City that was hijacked by gunmen. They were taken to a remote
suburb and, in a scuffle, Jan was shot. The bullet shattered his wrist
and penetrated his torso, lodging against his spine. Amazingly, no organs
were damaged, only a portion of his small intestine. We still don't know
how much, if any, spinal damage there may be. Jan has feeling in his
legs, which is a good sign, and he can move his toes. So we hope and pray
that the early forecast of partial paralysis will prove to be wrong. But
we just don't know.

What we do know, however, is that Jan is facing months of physical
rehabilitation, even under the most optimistic forecast. Fortunately, Jan
has medical insurance through his wife, Dorothy Browne, which has covered
most of the medical costs so far. But it will be a long time before Jan
gets back to writing full time. In the meantime, he and Dorothy need our
support during this difficult time.

We are seeking to raise enough money to tide Jan and Dorothy over for the
next six months. In May, we are planning two benefits, which you will be
hearing about soon. But Jan and Dorothy have immediate needs to attend,
and we are asking through this letter for our friends to help them out.

Please consider sending a check or money order to the Jan Reid Rescue
Fund for any amount. Every bit of this money will be going directly to
Jan and Dorothy. Even small contributions can make a great difference.
The address is c/o Phyllis Cartwright, P.O. Box 13151, Austin, TX
78711-3151.

Sincerely,
A few of Jan's many friends

Saturday, Sept. 26 there will be a benefit for the travel expenses of the family of Kiersa Paul. Perhaps you remember her story. Last summer she went out on a date with a man who raped and killed her and left her body in the Barton Creek Greenbelt. Her killer goes to trial soon, and Kiersa's parents, who live in Minnesota, want to attend the trial but cannot afford it.

From 2p.m. to 10 p.m. several bands will perform a benefit for this cause. Advance tickets are $10. At the door they cost $12. All proceeds will go to the travel-related needs of the Paul family, who will be in Austin three or four weeks. If we can reach the goal of covering all the Paul family's expenses, any extra money will be donated to the Austin Rape Crisis Center.

If you would like to support this effort, but are not coming to the benefit, checks can be made payable to:

"The Paul Family"
c/o Old World Bakery
814 W. 12th St.
Austin, TX 78701

The benefit will be held at:
The Elks lodge
700 Dawson Rd. (2 blks south of Barton Springs Rd.
2 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Thank you

TECHGNOSIS: Myth, Magic & Mysticism in the Age of Information

FringeWare Bookstore
2716 Guadalupe / Austin, Texas
Fri Nov 20, 8pm-midnight


You are cordially invited to attend a book reading and signing by Erik
Davis for his new work, TECHGNOSIS: Myth, Magic & Mysticism in the
Age of Information, published this month by Harmony Books. The event
is open to the public, and will be held at FringeWare on Friday,
November 20th, beginning at 8:00 pm, with complimentary food and
beverages for guests attending.

The oft-quoted Arthur C. Clarke once wrote: "any sufficiently advanced
technology is indistinguishable from magic." With this understanding,
Mr. Davis sets out on a wide-ranging search for the magical, mystical
roots of the technological revolution that has taken all of us by
surprise. As millennial fever approaches, there is much thought given
to a newer, better world -- a utopia where technology improves our
health, enhances our entertainment, and strengthens our Jeffersonian
liberties through the free exchange of information over the Net. Will
emerging technology help us realize this utopia, or in our obsessive
haste to exploit and commodify the world through technology, will we
reach an apocalyptic end? Can we find spiritual meaning and purpose
in a technological age? From the Dead Sea Scrolls to Timothy Leary's
dying wish to download his soul, from the Confessions of St. Augustine
to the hubris of Bill Gates, Davis's TECHGNOSIS does for our
post-modern technoculture what Weber's classic The Protestant Ethic
and the Spirit of Capitalism did for modern culture at the last turn
of the century.

"TECHGNOSIS is a tour de force of scholarship, insight, and juicy
writing... like Marshall McLuhan, Erik Davis sheds light on the
shadows in our search for the meaning of human inventions," writes
Howard Rheingold, author of The Virtual Community. "Davis marshals an
impressive amount of evidence from Eastern and Western literature,
history, philosophy, scripture and popular culture... surfing Davis's
datastream makes for an exhilarating ride," praises Publishers Weekly.
"Erik Davis has written one of the best media studies books ever
published... TECHGNOSIS is literate, accessible and funny," writes
Austin-based author Bruce Sterling. The renown techno music shaman DJ
Spooky calls TECHGNOSIS "a new Rosetta Stone for the Digerati."

Mr. Davis grew up in a well-known surf mecca, "stoking the dying
embers of the California counterculture". He left the beachside
babylon to run away with a carnival, where he smoked his first Camel
straight and got introduced to meditation, psychedelics, and the
occult. He went on to graduate from Yale University, winning awards
for his English thesis on Philip K. Dick. Mr. Davis has written for
Wired, The Village Voice, Details, Spin, Gnosis, Rolling Stone, Lingua
Franca, The Utne Reader, Mondo 2000, FringeWare Review, and The
Nation, on topics as diverse as Klingon Star Trek fans, French
philosophy, and the rave scene in India. He lectures internationally
on topics related to cyberculture and the fringes of religion. As a
contributing editor for FringeWare Review magazine, Mr. Davis
co-edited the "Chaos Spirituality" issue in 1996, along with Spiro(s)
Antonopoulos, where some of the preliminary material and themes for
TECHGNOSIS were tested. He has spoken at SXSW Interactive, and visits
Austin often from his native home in San Francisco.

Also, please mark your calendars for the Robert Anton Wilson
presentation in Austin on Saturday, December 5th, at 7:30pm at the
OFFCENTER, sponsored by Forbidden Books (Dallas) and FringeWare.

TEXAS COMMUNITY NETWORK CONFERENCE, AUSTIN, DEC. 14-15

The Texas Community Network Conference (Austin, December 14-15) is a non-
profit project to assist local leaders interested in using Internet tools
to benefit their communities. This statewide conference will offer
1998's largest gathering of experts providing information and direct
assistance with local online project design and funding. For Details


Hosts and sponsors for this subsidized conference include state agencies
as well as major telecom companies and non-profit organizations, who feel
online networks are increasingly important for communities who want
access to all the resources and opportunities available in the
Information Age.

We would like your help getting this invitation to local leaders who
might want to attend. Since these leaders can come from any part of a
community (libraries, schools, economic organizations, almost anywhere)
there is no established communications channel to reach them.

So we are asking members of the Texas "telecommunity" to please forward
this invitation to any list or individual where it would be appropriate.
thank you very much.

Is this years series kind of bombing out, or am I just delusional. Now
they're promising the sexiest, steamiest scenes ever in the coming
episode. Is this what it takes to keep the emaciated show alive. What's
up with David E. Kelley, is he putting all his creative juice in to all
these other new shows like Snoops?

I went to a reading of Karen Holcombe's Tristan and Izolde movie script
last
night and thoroughly enjoyed not only the reading but the give and take
with
the cast, writer and producers talked with the audience. It was real
lively.

It was at the Ted Hideout, a nice coffeehouse down on 617 Congress Avenue.
ONe of the cast members, said he felt the characters had more substance to
them than any play or movie he had been in.

Fine performances by Chris Huston (Tristan), Andrea Osborn (Izolda), and
Henry Fitgerald (King Mark).

To add a bit to the above, "movie midwifing" was the carrier for the above
event, a screenplay and short film contest open to Texas writers and
filmmakers. It was also sponsored by screenplay.com, who gave away prizes
like film making software to the winning writers (sb, screenwriting
software).

I really enjoyed Henry Fitzgeralds insights at the closing discussion,
especially. I think he made the comment about the substance of the
characters.

Karen has already had an inquiry for
her script from a film making outfit in Vancouver. And she's gained some
great insights in to her script for actors and an audience so she can go
back and flesh out some characters some more and clarify some issues in her
screenplay.

Too bad Karen's work is the tail end of this years series which started
August 1st, next year I'll be interested in seeing the whole series.
Alchemyworks is the organization that put on this series and produces

eMARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THE 2001 SEASON OF MOVIE
MIDWIFING IN SEPTEMBER

(Austin, Texas) Alchemy Works presents the 2001
season of "Movie Midwifing: A Series of New Screenplay
Readings & Short Films" Tuesday evenings, September 4,
11, 18, and 25th at the Hideout Theatre & Cafe at 617
Congress Avenue in Austin. Screenplays and short
films presented in the series are selected by
statewide contest. The 2001 winners will be announced
in early August.

The primary mission of the Movie Midwifing series is
to provide an interactive experience among audience,
actors, and the writer to breathe life into and
further shape a nascent script. Its secondary mission
is to foster opportunities for new directors and
producers to experience their works in an open setting
with an audience, thus gaining valuable insights to
form significant improvements in their works.

Winning screenplays are cast with professional actors
and presented to the public as unstaged readings.
After each reading, the audience and cast are invited
to share their feedback with the writer. In addition,
each evening's reading is preceded by a screening of
one or two new short films by Texas filmmakers!
Screenings begin at 7:15 p.m; readings begin at 7:30
p.m. Admission is $6 at the door.

Current sponsors of the series include the Austin Film
Festival, the City of Austin under the auspices of the
Austin Arts Commission and by the Texas Commission on
the Arts, and CC Digital Video & Audio. For more

PHILLIP KAPLAN signs copies of and discusses his Fucked Companies. Amen, to
that, brother. It isn't so much that corporate America is destroying us,
it's more that a few corporate vampires are getting filthy rich and being
protected by courts and the Bush League at the expense of millions of us.
These companies are fucked or, rather, are fucking us - and we're taking it
as if free enterprise means free-to-be-screwed. Now not even those leeches
called investors are safe from these vampires: workers have long been
expendable to the needs of the investor; now the investor is just another
sucker. If I weren't unemployed, I'd almost gloat. Thursday, July 18, 7pm.

INTIMACIES BOOK GROUP enjoys the company of special guest Sara Hickman.

I highly recommend this second event.

RESTAURANTS

MEXICAN

El Sol y La Luna (1224 S. Congress Ave) - Enchiladas Zacatecas. Who knew
heaven had guacamole-cream sauce on it. Nice little band on Friday nights

Taqueria Arandas #5 (S. 1st St.) - "This place is so cheap and yummy I get
confused."

Chuy's (1728 Barton Springs Road)- Kind of an Austin tradition. Frat boy
central, but still yummy and appeasing to the eye as well as the palate.

Hula Hut (3825 Lake Austin Blvd) - Picture Mexican food in Hawaii. Sit out
on the dock and overlook Lake Austin.

Curras 614 E. Oltorf

I hate it when I do this. I go to a place I eat there I think it sucks and
then I hear so many people give the damn place rave reviews I convince
myself I just got the wrong thing so I go back and think it sucks again.
This was my experience with Curras. Sucks is a strong word, but not far
from the truth. The service was sub-par, they kept bringing us the wrong
orders when they came to the table at all. I had the shrimp chiplote
enchiladas which I was cautioned on y the staff was very spicy. I grow
habaneros and jalapenos in my yard, the sauce was bland and the shrimp
were tiny and of the frozen variety. I was drawn back to try their famous
avocado margaritas, again I was not impressed. Two strikes against them,
Curras is not on the highly recommended list.


Trudy's - Several locations

I had been to Trudy's early on in moving to Austin and was impressed, but
as of late have a new respect for the place. Year after year the voted
best this r that in various Austin publications. I think maybe I had the
wrong thing. However, now that I have been introduced tot heir Mexican
Green Chile Sauce I am quite fond of Trudy's. Whether I have the sauce on
soft chicken tacos or a smoked chicken burrito I am a happy camper. My
boyfriend and I both were very unimpressed with their migas, so steer
clear of those. I plan on trying their stuffed and deep fried avocado next
visit!
