just check it out. It is Dope.


where did the a go, and where did the 'ry' come from?
Topic: Arts 5:01 pm EDT, Sep 11, 2003

The government has been taken over by dot-com marketing people! This is old news, but I'm wondering if anyone else is sick of the "administration" turning everything into an acronym. Naming something takes away it's mystery; makes it seem familiar and thereby safe to ignore. Especially with names like "patriot", "rave" and now "victory". We westerners are obsessed with and neurotically comforted by our names for things. A rose by any other name does /not/ smell as sweet, or sour, as long as there is a constant barrage of information to cover up the stink.

Information warfare is upon us, and I'm afraid most people don't have the good habits of thought necessary to realize it. I'd say we should teach philosophy and rhetoric in public schools if I hadn't experienced first-hand the way they botched up reading, 'riting and 'rithmetic.

Diebold appears to have conflict
Topic: Technology 6:18 pm EDT, Sep  4, 2003

] A wealthy businessman helping the Ohio Republican Party
] try to win the state in 2004 for President Bush also is
] the head of a company competing for a state contract to
] sell voting machines.
] Walden O'Dell, chief executive of Diebold Inc., told
] Republicans in an Aug. 14 fund-raising letter that he is
] ``committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes
] to the president next year.''

Watch the bouncing ball here. The mainstream press has widely discredited the security analysis of the Diebold's machines because the person that performed it is on the board at a competing company. On the other hand, there is hardly a peep about this. There are 9 links on google news from 6 outlets, 4 small local news stations, and two leftist journals.

Want undeniable proof of press culpability, compare a google news search for "Walden O'Dell" with "Avi Rubin votehere" Not all of the Avi Rubin stories are critical, but we're talking about 63 to 9 here. Furthermore, consider the impact that the blaster worm stories have had on the American mindset. We may not say "this kid created the blaster worm" but we build that association in your head anyway.

The AJC: "Furor over the report was partly defused when the lead researcher acknowledged this week that he failed to disclose that he had stock options in VoteHere, a company that competes with Diebold in the voting-software market, and was a member of VoteHere's technical advisory board."

From ABC: Diebold officials said they were "shocked and disappointed" by Rubin's admissions.

"Diebold Election Systems has consistently questioned the conclusions drawn by the Johns Hopkins-issued report," the company said in a statement. "It is now clear, by Mr. Rubin's own admission, that questions of bias must be considered."
