"I don't think the report is true, but these crises work for those who want to make fights between people." Kulam Dastagir, 28, a bird seller in Afghanistan

Lessons Born of Virtual Violence

"Shannon describes himself as "suspicious of media" and wonders why mainstream news outlets haven't explained the reports he's heard about Osama bin Laden being trained by the CIA. He relies on CNN only about as much as he does Slashdot.org, a tech-geek news site obsessed with Linux, digital freedom and the evils of Microsoft. He also gleans war news from an e-mail list for ravers.
"Unfortunately, there's a lot of conspiracy bull in that," he says. "You have to trust your own judgment.""

This is a strange story. They are attempting to tie video games to the way students respond to propaganda. They don't make a very convincing arguement. Its the comments from the students that are interesting. One of the things that access to a wide array of diverse information source requires you to do is think CRITICALLY about the information you are receiving and come to your own conclusions. Our society doesn't do that very well. If it IS true that the next generation has better critical thinking skills this is a tremendous social development victory, due to the internet and other DIY media, NOT video games.

DTMF tutorial
Topic: Miscellaneous 7:58 pm EDT, Oct  3, 2001

"Most voice energy comes from the vocal cord's vibration that tends to reside in the low frequency group. A spectrum analyst of this vibration would show a discreet frequency with multiple harmonics and not a broad spectrum of frequencies, making it highly unlikely that a single voice could ever produce a valid DTMF signal. "

September 24, 2001: Statement by ACLU Counsel Rachel King on Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001 Before the House Judiciary Committee
Topic: Miscellaneous 12:20 pm EDT, Sep 24, 2001

Congress is going off half cocked and passing some really bad laws. This is just an example.

My proposal. Any law passed within two months of an event of major international historial significance have a pre-set one year experation date, and they must be reconsidered at that time or they expire.
