"Salah al-Hajeen was one of at least six people blown up by a shell packed with some 3,000 inch-long arrows fired by an Israeli tank into a fruit-pickers' encampment in the orchards of Gaza. The darts are known technically as "flechettes"; the Palestinians simply call them nails. The shell killed four members of his family..."

My Cat Hates You
2:27 PM

"We asked the oficer closest to us how we should exit the intersection. He pointed and said to exit to the NE, into the spraying police opposite him. as the crowd pressed toward us I yelled to him to let us through (south on 2nd) because we had three small children.

He looked at me, and drew out his can from his hip and sprayed directly at me. I was at an angle to him and the spray hit my right eye and our three year-old who I was holding in my right arm. In the same motion he turned the can on my wife who was holding our 10 month old baby and doused both of their heads entirely from a distance of less than 3 feet" --Portland

"Puzzles have long been a source of motivation for the exploration of mathematical concepts, theory, and computation. Multimedia adventure games with creative storylines, movies, sophisticated graphics, and sound, are the modern context for both new and classic puzzles. We will show how some of these puzzles can be modeled with directed graphs and the resulting mathematical work can be carried out with nothing more than a computer spreadsheet."

Biases of the Ear and Eye: 'Great Divide' Theories, Phonocentrism, Graphocentrism & Logocentrism
11:19 PM

"We have lost the ability to penetrate below the phenomenal aspect of the "kairoi" or moments of time -- that is, the complex of people, events, ideas, organisms, and objects that constitute human experience -- and to perceive reality... The result, according to Ellul, is that "shadows" become the essence of one's life and thinking... He gets used to living in complete incoherence, because all his intellectual activity is taken up with these visions, themselves without a past and without a future, without any substance even in the present..." --Jacques Ellul and the Problem of Communication
9:04 PM

"Jacques Ellul wrote about a perceived takeover of humanity by technology in The Technological Society way back in 1954. This book is still worth reading by anyone interested in the things that orthodox mass-media advertisements for progress don't tell us about technology, but you have to steel yourself for an uncompromising and bleak perspective. If you think of this book as a forecast of the late nineteen nineties, written by a visionary of the 1950s, it's more than enough to give you the willies."

More on Ellul, and yet more...

"The Unabomber borrowed heavily, says Foster, especially from the writings of Jacques Ellul. It was in February 1965 that American readers were first introduced to Ellul's Technological Society in that magazine. Kaczynski wrote his brother David that he was deeply impressed by Ellul's writings which closely mirrored his own beliefs. These ideas pop up all over Kaczynski's writings, letters and manifesto..."

Ellul is also referenced in the first memo of The Illuminatus Trilogy... hmmm....

"Three of the stormiest and most controversial early movements within Sufism were led by Husayn ibn Mansur Haflaj (crucified AD 922),'Ain al-QudAt Hamaddni (crucified AD 1131), and Shah‚b al-Din Suhrawardi (crucified AD 1191)... Hall‚j... claimed himself to be an avatar of the divinity, by which he proclaimed in his famous formula, al haqq, Arabic for "I am the Haq [the Spirit]," out of the belief in the unity of creation, and that all creatures are ultimately the manifestations of the same original Universal Spirit. He thus also declared Lucifer to have been redeemed and elevated to the highest universal station, as in Yezidism. He was subjected to exquisite tortures before being crucified in Baghdad." --Sufi Mystic Orders

"NetLogo is a programmable modeling environment for simulating natural and social phenomena. It is particularly well suited for modeling complex systems developing over time. Modelers can give instructions to hundreds or thousands of independent "agents" all operating in parallel. This makes it possible to explore the connection between the micro-level behavior of individuals and the macro-level patterns that emerge from the interaction of many individuals."

Rubber-hose-squad:

We will never be able to show that Alice has revealed the last of her keys. Further, even if Alice has co-operated fully and has revealed all of her keys, she will not be able to prove it. Therefore, we must assume that at every stage that Alice has kept secret information from us, and continue to beat her, even though she may have revealed the last of her keys. But the whole time we will feel uneasy about this because Alice may have co-operated fully. Alice will have realised this though, and so presumably it's going to be very hard to get keys out of her at all.

Alice:
I can never prove that I have revealed the last of my keys. In the end I'm bound for continued beating, even if I can buy brief respites by coughing up keys from time to time. Therefor, it would be foolish to divulge my most sensitive keys, because (a) I'll be that much closer to the stage where I have nothing left to divulge at all (it's interesting to note that this seemingly illogical, yet entirely valid argument of Alice's can protect the most sensitive of Alice's keys the "whole way though", like a form mathematical induction), and (b) the taste of truly secret information will only serve to make my aggressors come to the view that there is even higher quality information yet to come, re-doubling their beating efforts to get at it, even if I have revealed all. Therefor, my best strategy would be to (a) reveal no keys at all or (b) depending on the nature of the aggressors, and the psychology of the situation, very slowly reveal my "duress" and other low-sensitivity keys."

The original Sesame Street shows "were built around the notion that Israeli and Palestinian children (as well as puppets) might become friends.

9:08 AM

"In George Orwell's novel 1984, news articles containing inconvenient facts were thrown down a memory hole to be incinerated. Now The Memory Hole Website rescues knowledge in danger of being forgotten, ignored, or suppressed.

The reason that literal memory holes don't exist is that they don't need to. Thanks to litigiation, spin control, self-censorship, media laziness, and info-glut, a lot of important facts are buried. Websites disappear. Articles from the Associated Press are changed. The New York Times buries a major revelation in the 18th paragraph of an article on page A23. The FBI withholds evidence. Transcripts of Congressional hearings go out of print after a week. Crucial government documents are never put online. Citizens have to pay hundreds of dollars for a single Freedom of Information Act request. Investigative books reveal startling facts, but who has time to read 900-page exposes? There are lots and lots of reasons why important facts often don't get the exposure they deserve." --Library Juice vol 5
