Greed powers our economy through restrictive licensing deals and claims of copyright. What enables this demand is the ability to control access or demand incentives as compensation for their work. The Internet, built without these restrictions, is being threatened to include protections for licensed and copyrighted content.

G.R.E.E.D. (Glom & Restrict Entities on Existing Domains) demonstrates how a web user’s browsing experience and anonymity can be threatened through restrictions, take-downs, censorship, and monetary blackmail if such license and copyright restrictions are imposed on the Internet.

This a browser extension which turns all instances of Mitt Romney to Mittens Romney on web pages. ( Mitt is short for Mittens!!!! )

I’m convinced that nobody in the US would accept having a president named Mittens, so I am releasing a tool to highlight his real ( and rather cute ) name.

Screen shot of the installed extension:

A huffington post article made that bit more silly:

An example google search (before & after installing Mittens):

Install Mittens:
What are you waiting for? Get Mittens Now!

Click to install Mittens Chrome Extension

Download and Install Mittens Safari Extension ( then double click to install )

Click to install Mittens Firefox Extension ( 1.0.1 – New! )

Note: Firefox version was automatically made with this tool and isn’t working on google search results. Working on getting it working 100%. Update: Thanks to Greg Leuch – we have a much better 1.0.1 Firefox version, with google search result integration.

You can grab the code or contribute to the project on github:

White-out the over-produced reality of the Kardashians*.

In a time where many wish to marry out of love but can’t because of how others feel about the sanctity of it all, we have celebrity Kim Kardashian to thank for showing us how great celebrity life can be… gorgeous ceremony, romantic honeymoon, million dollar licensing fees, and everything in between.

As the masses drool over her over-produced reality, for others, ignorance can be a true bliss with a little help from the Dash-Out browser blockers.

Chrome Firefox

* Also blocks out executive producer Ryan Seacrest.
