About the Site

Burningbird and its earlier incarnations (YASD, Dynamic Earth, etc.) have been online since 1996. The site features writings about politics, the environment, agriculture, government, open document systems, data, and technology.

I no longer maintain a static copy of all my past websites, since the Internet Archive does such a splendid job at the Wayback Machine. Instead, I give the Internet Archive an annual donation and strongly recommend you do so, also.

Burningbird RealTech

I still maintain the pages but no longer actively contribute to Shelley’s Toy Box, a tech site.

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 have a 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. Cost more than a dime, too. And earned me a lawsuit threat, which I’ll talk about sometime.

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