About Burningbird

About the Site

Burningbird and its earlier incarnations (YASD, Dynamic Earth, etc.) have been online since 1996. The site features writings about technology, politics, the environment, climate change, Savannah and Georgia, court cases, the government, open document systems, web standards, critters, and photography. Pretty much anything and everything I’m interested in.

I used to post under dozens of different domain names. Now, I only write here, at Burningbird.

I just finished restoring old posts thanks to the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine. It took about a year to individually upload 4,000 posts. I also culling tens of thousands of photos. and those remaining will show up as headers for stories or as Silent Sunday offerings.

I have a document site, but you have to know the URL to the document. They’re mainly linked in articles here, but I do provide direct access to my ASPCA vs Feld Entertainment (Ringling Bros) court case documents. It’s the most comprehensive collection of court documents for this and related cases on the internet. Posting these documents earned me a lawsuit threat, too, which I’ll talk about some time.

By the way, the Ringling Brothers circus elephants finally had a happy ending.

About Advertising

I’m the only writer at Burningbird, and I’m not interested in posting your article or providing a link to your site. I link to stories I’ve read and want others to read.

I’m also not interested in advertising on my sites, so don’t even try.

And Burningbird will always remain open, free, and 100% human.
