What It Looks Like To Be Tracked

Intergalactic Armies - Lightbeam VisualizationA couple nights ago I was shutting down my computer when, in the process of quitting Firefox, a mysterious screen opened before my eyes with what appeared to be a galaxy of circles and triangles, interconnecting and sprouting new satellites as I watched. Closer inspection revealed it to be a graphic visualization of sites I had recently visited with all the third party sites they had notified in clusters around them. It was a moment out of War Games. Had I been hacked, I wondered?  But no, it turned out to be Lightbeam, a browser add-on that allows you to see in real time how your information is being shared on the Internet by the sites you visit, and with whom. I vaguely remember installing it a while back but I never got around to using it, hence my initial surprise when it seemingly opened itself in my browser.  But once I saw what it revealed, I was riveted.

"The War of the Worlds" at Hooker-Dunham

Shoot the Moon theater company presents Orson Welles’ “The War of the Worlds” at the Hooker-Dunham Theater, Friday and Saturday, October 20-21, 27-28 and November 3-4. 

This radio adaptation of the H.G. Wells novel created a varying levels of hysteria when it debuted in 1938. Many listeners who missed the disclaimers actually thought Martians were invading Earth, due to the simulated breaking news broadcast format created by director and narrator Welles in collaboration with Howard Koch, who is credited with adapting the nineteenth century work of literature.

Contributed By: Spinoza

When we started iBrattleboro, we had some grand visions. In addition to wanting to provide a platform for local news, views, and opinions, we hoped that local writers would enjoy publishing their work to a large, local audience. It would be possible for any writer to have a regular place on the site, and build a following of regular readers, but also compile their collected works into a book if they so desired.

Almost 14 years later, it happened. The essays of “spinoza” were recently collected and collated by some sneaky members of the spinoza family, and presented back in the form of a bound volume. A copy arrived mysteriously on our back doorstep recently, and it was a real joy to behold. It was a bit like admiring a new infant in the family for the first time. “So what do we have here?”

Guilford Plays Next Weekend

“Wonderful, little plays,” is the comment of a cast member at a recent rehearsal, as all of us involved in the Guilford Center Stage fall production are discovering that these short plays, which have been sleeping on the printed page for 7 decades, are both moving and entertaining on stage.

I have known these plays since before my mother died in 1963, and always hoped to see them come to life. It’s been very rewarding to watch our fine director and skilled community actors work on these pieces, and we look forward to sharing them with you next weekend.
