Petition to open source Flash spec.

Not sure about this. I maintain a virtual machine running WinXP and the Shockwave plugins for my ancient CD-Roms and Flash applets. Works pretty rad and did not need any care at all so far. But perhaps this solution does not work for everyone?

Airplane hijacking was mostly a solved issue by the end of the 1970s. However, passengers and regulators mistakenly attributed this victory to passenger controls when the real reason was the criminalization of hijackers and the fight against safe heavens.
