Does it mean the same thing to all of us ?
2009-09-22 14:45:00
The world just celebrated the day of peace,but a simple question kept nagging my mind : even as we went through the motions, did the day really mean the same thing to all of us, do we all define peace
Bryan Aspey: shred this,"the coolest thing I've done in a long while."
2009-09-19 17:35:00
I had a very nice response from Bryan Aspey since winning the Shred This competition... 168 entries, but there could only be 1 winner... Bryan Aspey says: Since 2000, I had been playing mostly acoustic, and then made the switch a few years ago exclusively to classical. It was a great experience for me and I plan to keep up with it, yet the further I drifted from my 90's shred roots, the more I... This is a content summary only.

2009-09-17 20:09:00
If you’re anything like me, Internet — and we both know you aren’t, but hope someday you will be and to be honest with you, I don’t think you’re smart enough to come anywhere close — you’re probably wondering how long it’s going to take before that dead Patrick Swayze starts bugging poor Whoopi while she’s trying to host that show with all the old women and that one cute chick that all the hippies hate because she’s a Conservative and bathes regularly or whatever. Because you just know he’s going to do it at some point. So the funniest thing happened to me yesterday. I had stopped by the Circle K — you know, the one on the corner of Airline and Goodwood — on my way to work to pick up some Pop Rocks and Snapple for breakfast, and when I saw the cashier was of Middle Eastern descent, I did my civic duty as a tax-paying American citizen who loves his country and apple pie (but can’t seem to g...

We keep on moving on The Road. Last week, we had a long weekend here in Rome, and I took the opportunity of doing some major clean-up and re-organisation of my blog network.- I checked all links I have in the aid resources, aid worker blogs and aid news widgets in the side column to see if they were still valid.- As the list has expanded to over 400 links, it became impossible to manage manually, so I extracted all nonprofit blogs (excluding those from aidworkers) and put them in a dedicated delicious folder.- While I was at it, I made an aggregator of these nonprofit blogs. Check out NonProfit Blogs, and linked a Twitter account to it: @NonProfitBlogs- As I scanned over 200 of these blogs within 24 hours, I got a good view as to what's up in the nonprofit blogging world. And I wrote a post about my findings on BlogTips.- I also turfed all these blogs for their pageranks, and... (yes, you guessed it!)... wrote a post about it. :-)- One of the tools I use extensively to aggregate RS...
Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) - No New Thing Under the Sun*
2009-08-21 02:00:00
Saul Hansell from the New York Times published a blog yesterday called "How Hackers Snatch Real-Time Security ID Numbers."  Now most people** are probably expecting me to launch into a robust defense of all things unassailable and security goodness here, but I am not going to do that.  Why?  Because Saul is right, and it should come as no surprise that any single security measure can be broken. If you want to know why, and also know why RSA SecurID is an essential part of a layered information-centric security system, please read-on.
Is There Such a Thing as ?The Great Teacher??

Do an internet search under the topic, ?What makes a great teacher? and you will be flooded with opinions.

My book, Teacher of the Year: The Mystery and Legacy of Edwin Barlow examines this issue, among ...

Social media blurs the lines — and that’s a good thing
2009-08-05 06:54:00
Facebook is where most every aspect of my life collides. There, my friends include people from grade school, high school and college; people I worked with at three of the five post-college jobs I’ve had; people who I have met via social media and some I have worked for as a contractor; and my immediate family and extended family like cousins. My professional and personal lives. Twitter is similar to Facebook in that the lines are blurred between professional and personal in who I follow and who  follows me. But, hey, that’s social media, right? So listen up all you companies: You can’t really have your employees tweeting, facebooking, blogging, etc., just about your company. Personal aspects will naturally flow into those messages. And that’s a good thing. Sure, go ahead and have guidelines and policies to try to ensure that those tweets are not bashing the food you serve or other potentially negative social media mentions. But, do know and trust that it won...

The Hardest Thing About Love Is...
2009-06-26 05:19:00
Of all the emotions that I've experienced, I think love is the most complicated. Seriously, you are elated about a person throughout the entire day, and one small thing can make you worry over them.It makes me almost feel like a parent or something (even though I am not one). But you often worry about their health and even the smallest things (like a potential spider bite) can throw you off (Grrrrrrrrrrr!!!!).Although this is the first time I've been in love with someone special, I find that I become concerned over the smallest things (which usually isn't me for the record).While I have no regrets about being in love (as I think it makes life grand and is ultimately worth it), I wish there was a way to turn the "worry mode" off.At least for a while.(Image Credit: Southern Illinois Uni-versity)
The Best Thing That Is Only Good, Really, If You Experience It Second-Hand.
2009-06-14 15:05:00
The world can be divided into two kinds of experiences: Those that are best when you are directly involved in them, and those that are best when you just hear about them from someone else.I don't mean that those are the only two kinds of experiences; there are an infinite number of ways to divide the way we experience the world -- there are experiences, I suppose, that are best when they happen accompanied by music, and experiences that are best only if they never ever ever happen to us, and experiences that would be awesome if it wasn't for the fact that during them we had a hangnail, and so on. The multitude of ways we experience our lives cannot really be boiled down to just two.But let me do that anyway. Let me boil the way you and I and everyone else live our lives down to just two ways: Things that are best experienced directly and things that are best heard about from someone else.Things that are best experienced directly include: Love. Pizza. The ending to that episo...
Cameron Diaz does the decent thing
2009-06-13 18:30:00
Single, childless and proud of it. That was how one newspaper report described Cameron Diaz last week when the actress revealed that, despite being 36, she was not particularly desperate to have children. The headline might as well have said: Drunk, disorderly and proud of it. "The cheek of the woman!" was the inference. How ironic that in complaining about how women are shunned for deciding against starting a family, Miss Diaz met with precisely the same prejudice in the way her remarks were presented. In speaking honestly about how it felt just fine to be single as her biological clock ticked away inexorably, she was said to have "defended her status". But there was absolutely nothing to defend. As she talked about her struggle to find a husband, she was described as "Miss Diaz, who has never married". "Miss Diaz, who is not married," would have done. "Never married" subtly suggested she was past it, on the shelf. (Can you imagi...
Is Wireless Video the Next Big Thing?

IT Outsourcing To China As Next Big Thing.
2009-06-01 13:15:00
KPMG recently came out with an excellent report on outsourcing to China (h/t to Experience Not Logic), entitled, "A new dawn: China’s emerging role in global outsourcing." KPMG summarizes its report as follows: Outsourcing is on the agenda of the Chinese government as they seek to boost foreign investment into China and support the development of the services sector. Companies are also looking at China as an alternative to India, especially in light of recent security and governance concerns. This paper looks at how China is moving up the value chain in developing the necessary infrastructure and outsourcing centers, and how that will impact the Asia-Pacific region and the rest of the world. Because my firm recently started doing legal work for a very large China outsourcing company, I do not think it appropriate or even fair for me to comment on this article, but I am citing to it because it most certainly is well worth the read.

Genomics: The next big thing?
2009-05-15 15:00:00
"Genomics may be the 'next big thing' after the Internet and biotech," explain small cap growth stock specialist Jim Oberweis, Jr.In his The Oberweis Report, he explains the "politics" behind this bullish scenario as well as his top pick for log-term investors seeking exposure to the developing healthcare technologies if genomics  and personalized medicine." The argument can be made that the surge of biotech development in the 1980s and 1990s was a result of increased government funding for programs like the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that bridged the gap between the academically possible and the commercially profitable."From 1983-1993, the budget of the NIH increased 158%, rising from $4 billion to $10 billion. From 1993-2003, that same budget increased another 163% to $27 billion."Indeed, we believe that the biotech boom was a direct consequence of rising National Health Institute (NIH) funding, cheap equity capita...

Well, a horrible thing to report…
2009-04-25 23:13:00
Hey everyone, it's been a loooong time, and i have some bad things to report. I am now, once again, an avid cutter, cutting over 40 times each night for about a week now. For the first time like ever, blood is dripping, the pain barely exists as i cut, and my leg swells a little where i cut. i know now that i really do have a problem with this, and that it just wont go away on its own. I tried all the coping mechanisms i read on the internet, like the ice and the rubberband, but it didn't work and now i'm cutting again. i'm not abusing anymore, but i have tried a couple times to no success (i know that sounds bad…) However, i do have some good things to report. i now have a boyfriend who i like very much and i believe will help me through this phase (although he doesn't know about my cutting). he is very sweet and supportive of my feelings. i also want to ask a question to anyone out there reading this who has maybe done the same thing. I am thinking ...

Prayer for the Dying: The Thing Worse than Rebellion
2009-04-09 11:13:00
By Jason Miller4/9/09?The thing worse than rebellion is the thing that causes rebellion.?--Frederick DouglassIn an eerily ironic twist of fate, less than a month after I wrote a satirical interview with a despicable, fictitious proponent of our anthropocentric and ecocidal American Way of Life[1], an avaricious and bellicose way of life that is definitely a ?thing that causes rebellion,? I found myself engaged in an email exchange with a rabid and very real mouth-piece for our capitalist culture of death and domination. But before I get into the emails themselves though, let me establish the basis for our fascinating ?dialogue.?To maintain its hegemony, the ruling class of the dominant culture has to rally the masses against an existential threat in order to justify the existence of a police state apparatus in our so-called ?liberal democracy,? or as my ?email friend? semi-accurately pointed out, constitutional republic (more on that later).

Albuquerque can be many things to many people -- it can be the headquarters for a secretive group of people trying to bring about the end of all 73 dimensions (as in my ongoing story, "Lesbian Zombies Are Taking Over The World!"), it can be a hard-to-spell stumbling block for kids in the local geography bee, and mosly, it can be... HOT.Which is why, if you live in Albuquerque -- the only city in the world with two "Qs" in the name -- you need a a decent air conditioning system, and not one of those window-units that will wheeze and sputter and not cool you down at all.
