Life is for Living

This blog is to collect random thoughts that don't really have a structure, except a publishing chronology, and even that is unlikely to follow the creation chronology.

Calm, excited, weak, strong, funny, serious, lazy, worker, irresponsible, thinker, shallow, selfish, generous, spontaneous, impulsive, undecided, poor, rich, tall(ish), ignorant, cultured, sophisticated, procrastinator, stoopid, clever. Pick any two, or more... ;-) 
One of my favorite quotes: "Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well reserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming... 'Wow! What a ride!' "

Generally interested in a lot of subjects:
- Artificial Intelligence (mostly because there's so little Natural Intelligence around)
- 3D printing
- DIY projects (including home foundry, electronics, general hacking)
- Scuba diving
- Mountaineering
- Paragliding
- Music
- Arts (mostly visual arts) including street art
- Dance
- Intentional communities
- Society in general, how to fix the current mess in particular, or rather how to escape it

Al Jazeera targetted?

I've been reading an article on the Democracy Now website about the controversy that's hit the media lately. Did Bush plan on bombing the Al Jazeera offices?

Well, I'm prepared to give the shrub the benefit of the doubt for a few minutes, but let's just look at history: how many times were Al Jazeera offices targetted in the past?

It all comes down to the identification of Al Jazeera as the Al Qaeda mouthpiece. In the shrub's mind, there's no place for half measures: you're with us or against us. Al Jazeera are not imbedded, so they must be against the US.

There's even another revealing fact: both names start with Al!

If my name was Al Pacino or Al Franken, I'd start worrying about my future...
