"Most people don't have the time to send these badly needed messages, because
they are doing other things. But our computers have the time, and want to go to work
for you. If you join us, we'll send you proposed email letters. You can tell us to send
each one for you, and we send it out over your return address."
Protest.Net: A calendar of protest, meetings, and conferences. "Protest.Net is a site to help progressive activists by providing a central place where the times and locations of protests and
meetings can be posted. I can't possibly keep up with all the actions, so if you find about a protest or meeting, please post that
information to protest.net."
Science -- Hofstadter 281 (5376): 512 Douglas Hofstadter worries about the future of rational inquiry. This is not so new -- from July of 1998 -- but the concerns are worthy of ongoing attention even in this brief-attention-span post-MTV world. I'm not sure, however, I totally agree with Hofstadter. While I'm a scientist, I am exposing my children to the joys of the pseudo-scientific, the eerie and unexplained. These two are not necessarily dichotomous.
Molecules with Silly or Unusual Names "Believe it or not, some chemists do have a sense of humour, and this page is a testament to that. Here we'll show you some real molecules that
have unusual, ridiculous or downright silly names."
Looked around at some other people's logs, and some logs of logs, this evening. One conclusion: very few people out there have anything approaching a clever NAME for their weblog. (Not that "Follow Me Here" is anything to write home about...) Another: it really is getting to be a movement, or a community, out there. Not necessary in a laudable sense; there's something really incestuous about people's reciprocal pointers to the other weblogs they each follow. Everyone seems to circulate the same stories, which I won't dignify by recycling here. Perhaps they were interesting the first time they were referenced. Must be sort of like the frenzied efforts reporters take not to get scooped. The important thing, it would seem, is to find something original that your readers would find enlightening and/or enlivening...
Who Are the Tibetan Lamas? by Matt Alsdorf Last week the Karmapa Lama, a 14-year-old Tibetan
Buddhist Leader, fled to India from Chinese-controlled Tibet.
Five years ago, the Chinese government sparked controversy
by nominating a different boy for the position of Panchen
Lama than the one the Dalai Lama had chosen. Who are all
Salon Technology | Fear of links "The occasion was a panel discussion at a new media conference at the UC-Berkeley Journalism School earlier this year, and the message was clear: People who provide links to other people are performing a low, menial task that any boob can handle... Well, I beg to differ. And, more importantly, the behavior of millions of Web users suggests that they place an extremely high value on the reliable, timely provision of useful -- or quirky, or overlooked -- links."
"The condition of alienation, of being asleep, of being unconscious, of being out of one's mind, is the condition of the normal man. Society highly values its normal man. It educates children to lose themselves and to become absurd, and thus to be normal. Normal men have killed perhaps 100,000,000 of their fellow normal men in the last fifty years."
