24th December 2006 :: On with the Merriment!

Category: Keith Richard's forefather unearthed? – or just another PR-jippo for Pirates of the Carribean

Chinese scientists are conducting laboratory work hoping to identify a 2,800-year-old mummy presumably of a shaman in the northwestern Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. The well-preserved mummy of a seemingly Caucasian man with a Roman nose and deep-set eyes was unearthed from a cluster of ancient tombs in 2003 and research work has been going on ever since. Archeologists found the mummy most intriguing because a sack of marijuana leaves was found buried alongside the corpse. The mummy remains intact in its original outfit despite the passage of time: leather hat, heavy coat and boots, huge earrings of copper and gold, a turquoise necklace, a copper laced stick in the right hand and a bronze ax in the left, according to Li Xiao, head of the heritage bureau in Turpan.

19. December 2006 :: High times for farmers as cannabis is named America's biggest cash crop

Category: Americans (Children of the Corn)

Marijuana is the most valuable cash crop in the United States, worth more to its growers than corn and wheat combined, according to a new report by a leading American drug reform lobbyist that cites the US government's own figures. Decades of government efforts to crack down on both the cultivation and consumption of pot have had a counter-productive effect, since even the most conservative government estimates suggest domestic marijuana production has increased tenfold in the past 25 years. It is the leading cash crop in 12 states, and one of the top five crops in 39 states.

15. December 2006 :: Clueless

Category: Americans!

The average American spends 4.5 hours every day in front of the tube. He listens to radio for 2.5 hour and spends an hour reading news in the Internet or in papers, according to statistics on media use. Still he doesn't have a clue on what's going on or why large parts of the world hates him. Fascinating!

20. October 2006 :: Only a dead American is a good American

Category: Baghdad

The American military's stepped-up campaign to stanch the unrelenting bloodshed in the capital under an ambitious new security plan that was unveiled in August has failed to reduce the violence, a military spokesman said Thursday. Instead, attacks have actually jumped more than 20 percent over the first three weeks of the holy month of Ramadan, compared with the previous three weeks, said Major General William Caldwell, the military's chief spokesman in Iraq.

Category: killing fields

For The New York Times Ian Buruma reviewed the book 'The Greatest Story Ever Sold: The Decline and Fall of Truth From 9/11 to Katrina' by Frank Rich. In the essayish text Buruma wrote: «that Dick Cheney and his neocon cheerleaders favored a war in Iraq long before 9/11», «to jump-start a realignment of the Middle East», and further on that «the Bush administration has given hypocrisy a bad name». Read all about it!

15. February 2006: Public Access

Kategori: Web standards :: echo

Some months ago I was horrified by the level of standards public web pages were made by. Calling in tonight I found that the layout of the Norwegian 'central web server for public information' has gone through quite some changes lately. The code is almost valid! I still find the homepage of the Swedish 'pathfinder to information on society and public services' better though (wonder if they've managed to make the speach function work? No hint on Dick).

13. February 2006: One of the most significant and reliable information movers and managers in Norway turns toward clean coding and web standards!

Kategori: Web standards

In a subdirectory I came across the upcoming layout of NRK, the Norwegian equivalent of BBC. According to W3C it has valid code, and the new code is almost Relaxed as well. The layout is modernized keeping much of the same 'look and feel' as the old one, which still may be viewed on the main pages. Polopoly is the chosen platform management system and has a nice slogan: Cultivating the information garden!

9. February 2006: .htaccess

Kategori: webbish

Two days off the web finally adjusted through new access file. (A point from an A List Apart article which also may be used on .htaccess: 1
We're doing ourselves a favor, as this is the correct way to do things. 2
We're doing our server a favor, as this means less disk access. 3
And most importantly, we're doing our visitors a favor, because they're no longer losing a few seconds while our server tries to find first a file and then a directory. And in this industry, you and I both know that a few seconds is a long, long time.)

06.02.06: Guns'n'Roses represents the total failure of Rock'n'Roll

Kategori: pollution

There's been some years since I've been contemplating the thought. And the reflection on meaninglessness was ignited after first watching 30 minutes of an edited live video from Japan, with wanking drum solo and soforth. Lot of noice, huge gestures, and no authenticity – as far as I could recognize. Three nights later I went to a bar where mixed CD's are being played. Already during the intro I felt that there were nothing in this socalled music, except for money. Sorry!

19. January 2006: AJAX, Web 2.0 and the Threat to Digital Archives

Kategori: web

Here's the problem: since human beings first started scratching marks on stone, we've followed a trajectory away from a culture of story-telling to a culture of record-keeping. Walter Ong calls this the difference between orality and literacy; while it used to be that people would pass knowledge from generation to generation by telling each other stories, now we write things down and trust that they'll still be there later. In short, we've taken our collective memory and stored it outside of our heads.
