Yaser Esam Hamdi v. Donald H. Rumsfeld
Topic: Politics and Law 11:46 pm EDT, Jun 30, 2004

At this difficult time in our Nation's history, we are called upon to consider the legality of the Government's detention of a United States citizen on United States soil as an "enemy combatant" and to address the process that is constitutionally owed to one who seeks to challenge his classification as such.

We hold that although Congress authorized the detention of combatants in the narrow circumstances alleged here, due process demands that a citizen held in the United States as an enemy combatant be given a meaningful opportunity to contest the factual basis for that detention before a neutral decisionmaker.

As If.

Someone needs to translate the Castells trilogy into Arabic -- especially "End of Millennium".

Also, viewers of Saudi TV ought to ask their investigative reporters to follow the money that enabled the mujahideen to fight off the Soviets. They'll find that it came from a democratic, capitalist superpower, not from madrassas or from Saudi "charities."

Control Room
Topic: Documentary 11:15 pm EDT, Jun 21, 2004

Different Channels. Different Truths.

Control Room, by Jehane Noujaim, an award-winning Arab-American filmmaker who has lived within and embraced both worlds, provides an opportunity to re-examine what is perhaps the most pressing question of international relations today: "is America radicalizing or stabilizing the Arab world?" Without miring itself in shadowy conspiracy theories.

Control Room provides a balanced view of Al Jazeera's presentation of the second Iraq war to their worldwide Arab audience, and in so doing calls into question many of the prevailing images and positions offered up by the US news media.

Control Room neatly bridges the gap between timeless and timely; timeless because it locates itself in the midst of the ongoing cultural clash between Western and Arab worlds, timely because it does so through the prism of satellite television's impact on how viewers receive information worldwide from news providers, driven by the patriotism of their audiences, to Army information officers, driven by military objectives. Control Room is a seminal documentary that explores how Truth is gathered, presented, and ultimately created by those who deliver it.

Topic: Music 6:02 pm EDT, Jun 19, 2004

Music is one of life’s pleasures. We listen to it because it’s part of who we are. We find it everywhere. We seek it out. Good things are like that.

Music makes Branding stick, because consumers remember music long after the logo. But licensing music, finding the perfect track, creating distribution channels, and mixing and fulfilling music programs takes time, patience and sometimes luck.

That's where we come in. VerveLife moves music. From the music industry to you and your customers, VerveLife specializes in Music Marketing programs that create powerful, emotional links between Brands and consumers.

We'll handle everything. You just listen to the music.

This company's marketing is a little over the top, but they seem to have interesting technology.

Mood Palette

There are a number of technologies available that allow users to search for songs, based on their relationship to other songs. Our mood palette is the first visual tool that allows users to search for music that matches a mood or experience.

Starting with your frame of mind, the colored palette adjusts and focuses with each selection, zeroing in on the music whose style, rhythm, and tempo reflects your mood or desired energy level.

Insurgency and Counterinsurgency in Iraq [PDF]
Topic: Military 2:31 am EDT, Jun 19, 2004

For 50 years, the United States has had ill-fated experiences in effectively fighting insurgencies. In counterinsurgency terms, Vietnam and Iraq form two legs of a historically fraught triangle — with El Salvador providing the connecting leg.

In light of this history, the author analyzes where the United States has gone wrong in Iraq; what unique challenges the conflict presents to coalition forces deployed there; and what light both shed on future counterinsurgency planning, operations, and requirements.

Safe at Kamp Krusty
Topic: TV 12:33 am EDT, Jun 17, 2004

The fourth-season opener finds Bart and Lisa headed for six fun-filled weeks at Kamp Krusty, the brochure having failed to mention counselor-thugs, imitation gruel, slave labor and no Krusty.

... The next morning, Lisa and several other kids in their bathing costumes stand at the edge of a pier, looking down at a ragged canoe.

Lisa: Uh, are you sure that's safe?
Kearny: Well it ain't gettin' any safer.

In today's mail, I received an advertisement from Comcast offering high-speed internet service at only $19.99 per month for 6 months. After mentioning 3 Mbps download speed and other features, it reads:

Nature Review of 'Human-Built World' [PDF]
Topic: Technology 1:14 am EDT, Jun 15, 2004

The book review is on page 2. Ultimately, this reviewer calls the book "rewarding if unsatisfying." But, then, he's British. :)

The visionary contributions of Marshall McLuhan go unremarked.

I'm surprised by this ...

Human-built World is a virtuoso overview of the various relationships between technology, commerce, society, art and the military.

At least one Nature reader ( ) felt that the review was clouded by an attempt to make political statements in the process of discussing the book. I tend to agree.

Human-Built World: How to Think about Technology and Culture
Topic: Technology 1:05 am EDT, Jun 15, 2004

America's foremost historian of technology delivers the goods. A must-read.

To most Americans, technology has been reduced to computers, consumer goods, and military weapons; we speak of "technological progress" in terms of RAM and CD-ROMs and the flatness of our television screens.

In Human-Built World, Thomas Hughes restores to technology the richness and depth it deserves by chronicling the ideas about technology expressed by influential Western thinkers who not only understood its multifaceted character but who also explored its creative potential.

Hughes nimbly charts the myriad ways that technology has been woven into the social and cultural fabric of different eras and the promises and problems it has offered.
