Toronto G20 Debate →
Watch thisvideo. “That shouldn’t stop us from realizing that we’re winning the war, even though we lose the street battles. Without militant protests, every summit meeting would be a self-congratulatory public relations spectacle for the ruling class, a carefully scripted celebration of the wonderful job the neoliberals are doing running the world. Instead, because of us,...

The other thing about Toronto is that I know much of it is heartbreaking but you should also be hopeful, because everyday there are more and more people willing to take a stand against those horrors, and while not everyone is in a position to join them in the streets there are things you can do to help. Things like prisoner support but also things as simple as speaking about these issues....

This thing is pretty amazing. The depth to which the Deepwater Horizon Oil rig drilled is included. The visual representation of just how deep they drilled is boggling.
Courtesy of the way back machine an old essay (from 2008) I thought was lost to time: Push. Click. Push. Click Each push harder than the last. The time between clicks diminishes to a steady rat-a-tat-tat. Then. Slap! One leg stomps while the second presses up against the board.

VTI: Are You At Risk?
VTI, or visually transmitted infection, is a weaponized version of information transfer developed by the group calling itself Cell 144. Through both specifically designed images and engineered text Cell 144 have been introducing an organism into the populace. Each day this infection spreads more widely as the organism better learns to mimic memetic propagation. The organism is described by Cell...
There’s a lot of food for thought here. I’m especially intrigued by his notion of the mystical experience as one kind of peak of human well being. Certainly I think the creative process is of the same qualitative realm as mystic experience. Further I think the arts are one of the best places to explore ethical dilemmas. Certain strains of moral relativism hold sway in many of the...
