Iraqi Man’s Slaying Dominates Arab Media

Just another indication of the how US actions are almost completely independent of the reaction in the Arab world. Sad… (thanks Ilya).

Politics and web…

Idea: political web application.
What do I want to know about our politicians when making a decision?

– General profile with a link to something more extensive
– Timeline of decisions (+ ability to search by category)
– Outcome of decisions (effects)
– Analysis by respected institutions/individuals: open discussion in case of disagreements
– conclusive state of affairs by a neutral board (un-biased lawyer think-tanks)

Perhaps this would facilite intelligent re-engagement of the populace in the democratic system?

Arnold for President? Hell’s yeah! Or at least without knowing more about him: successfull at virtually anything he has ever done (bodybuilding, movies, business), impossible to corrupt (what can you possibly give him that he doesn’t already have?), respectable past, smart, good-looking – what more could you ask for? Am curious to see his track record… http://www.nbc5.com/politics/3920533/detail.html?z=dp&dpswid=2265994&dppid=65193

Seems like SiMX is back up, but I am still not sure if I e-mail is getting through. Keep using the nikitab address… :\

Grrr.

OK. So all of SiMX is down, which means that all hosted sites are down… rare occurence, but, hey… If you want to e-mail me, please do so at me [at] nikitab dot com.

Ouf…

My nikita [at] simx.com e-mail is NOT working right now – terribly sorry 😦

OK. After a late late night, then 12 hours of sleep, again it is 5:30am. And I have:
– made a mistake in choice or restaurant, yet had a good time
– learned some cool new moves at the Shelter with Alfonso
– had an idea about for SRO on the way back and suggested it to Goldie. We’ll see if he likes it. SRO is a tiny bar around the block. I suggested to use mirrors in such a way that when a person looks at a properly positioned mirror in a hole in the wall, he/she sees a tunnel (which, in reality, is running alongside the other side of the wall). This way, in a tiny space, you look out, and see a tunnel anywhere between 3 and 10 meters long with, perhaps, a candle at the end. Trippy.

Can’t think. Only monothoughts like: feelgood. Needsleep. Bed.
