hi all. hows it going? things have been kind of turbulent
in my personal life lately. some health issues for nearby cohorts,
not my own. employment volatility. persistent quandaries. to make
long stories short. sometimes I feel like writing a long blog about
it, other times not.
my zeal… Read full post »

hi all. as some may have noticed Ive collected links under the heading "electronic democracy" almost since this blog started.
its an old idea Ive had ever since the late 80s or early 90s as computers were starting to gain traction in everyday life. what if our government & other bureacracies… Read full post »
hi all .. my last installment in this series was about 3mo ago at which point the Occupy msg was starting to resonate across the country. boy has it ever! within the last 2 weeks we saw Romney get dinged bigtime over his comments that he "likes to fire people" and… Read full post »

hi all. one of my favorite ironic sayings-- be careful what you wish for, you might get it. Im feeling that way lately. Ive been advocating economic issues for many years now, esp since 911. from a progressive angle. something seemed broken, but like a fish in water, it was… Read full post »
hi all. Im a little shocked at the wall st protests. Ive seen a lot of protests over the last few years, but they always seemed to be aimed at something useless. yet the wall st protesters seem to me to be a real grassroots, spontaneous, meaningful phenomenon. moreover, the… Read full post »

hi all. skip to the bottom if you want to gloss over the boring, self-indulgent blog-prose. I put in a bunch of cool, kick @$# android videos [commercials]. I was inspired because I saw one of them prior to seeing the latest transformers 3d [the "droid charge" ad below]. it really… Read full post »

hi all. I havent written about one of my favorite subjs in this blog lately. "favorite" is a simplification. as facebook says, "its complicated". its more a love-hate relationship. ah but thats life isnt it.
the subj is polyamory. in the past, Ive written a long essay using recent press links… Read full post »
hi all. I was gonna write a little about rupert and his young half-as-old bride wendi deng with my last post, but I skipped it. little did I know that the whole thing would go unbelievably internet-viral. she slapped the guy who tried to pie murdoch at the UK parliament hearings,… Read full post »
