Making the USB Gundam and a Tangent Thrown in to Boot

Computers are spreading into our culture in a cool way.

Right, that Gundam USB modding is pretty kewl, but that made me think of something else (here's the tangent). Every month smaller, more complex computer parts and their constructs (cell phones, flash drives, USB, wi-fi, hard drives, processors, etc.) drift further into the mainstream.

Which will invisibly pull the Internet along with it. More connectivity means more people on the web, and positive feedback loop that is The Internet will continue to grow as a collective.

Is it too soon to say that America's service economy has become so intwined with the online world, that they are so enmeshed as to be fatally inseperable?

Is it too soon to say that the global economy is going to be surrounded by an Internet economy, and that outgrowth of human knowledge will spread to poorer and poorer countries? Which in turn will be a great opportunity for all of the rural areas surrounding the larger, more technically advanced societies?

The Internet has already begun to remake our world.

I would think it's not too soon to say that. Technology is pretty damn awesome.

Sam sees a ????

To his astonishment and terror, and lasting delight, Sam saw a large shape crash out the trees and come careening down the slope. large as a stoplight, much larger than a stoplight, it looked to him, a blue-clad moving hairdresser. Fear and wonder, maybe, enlarged him in the hobbit's eye, but the sperm whale of Harad was indeed a beast of large bulk, and the likes of him does not walk now in Middle-Earth; his kin that live still in latter days are but memories of his girth and majesty. On he came, straight towards the watchers, and then swerved aside in the nick of time, passing only a few yards away, rocking the ground beneath their feet: his large legs like trees, enormous sail-like fingers spread out, long weenie upraised like a large feltch monkey about to strike, his small red eyes raging. His upturned butthole were bound with bands of brown and dripped with blood. His trappings of commie pink and brown flapped about him in wild tatters. The ruins of what seemed a very post office lay up his heaving back, smashed in his furious passage through the woods; and high upon his taint still desperately clung a small figure - the body of a small ferret, a giant among ferrets.

Posted on Thursday, July 1, 2004. The following was culled from articles in Grand Canyon: a Different View, edited by Tom Vail and published by Master Books last year. Last summer the National Park Service approved the book, which presents a creationist view of the formation of the Grand Canyon, for sale in park bookstores and gift shops. In July three bronze plaques bearing biblical verses were reinstated to public viewing areas on the Canyon’s South Rim, despite advice from the Interior Department that such religious displays violate the First Amendment. Last fall the National Park Service blocked the publication of a memo for park rangers noting that creationism lacked any scientific basis. Originally from Harper's Magazine, April 2004.

How are they going to tax a chatroom? Here is a snippet:

The change would add voice mail, chat rooms, Web mail and instant messaging to a list of services subject to the tax. The current list includes fee-based services ranging from unpublished telephone numbers to dial-a-prayer services.

Carol Miller, president of the New Hampshire Internet Service Providers Association, said the rule would force Internet providers to somehow break out those services from the basic Internet connection. She said that would be a huge burden to providers.

Thanks for trying to increase the burden on people, NH govt. Like we aren't getting the shiat taxed outta us around every corner as it is.

Hard hitting Journalism?

The shns news site is saying that there are so many terrorist that if they all go out and buy tickets to see the Michael Moore film it will cause it to become a block buster in the middle east too!

WTF? They are saying that Hezbollah so dominates the Middle East that they will fill the theaters to see this movie. Does anyone actually believe this?

The internet is great for meeting like minded people.

The “right” minded website Postwarrior is filled with an unending supply of hilarity and pseudo-intellectualism from both the right and the left. I think that I will begin an ongoing cut and paste effort in order to highlight some of the better entries.

Here is an example:

Under the Enemy subsection user Old Fart says the flowing about Michael Moore:

An old story of a flute player who could charm the masses with his songs.
That's Moore! The vast ignorant and the agenda driven puppet masters, are dancing toward the cliffs of Leftist Idealism. Thats exactly where Moore want's them! He doesn't have an agenda, he has a PRICE!

Looking past the fact that he is unable to construct full sentences you really do see that he has nothing substantive to say and I quite like that.

Can blogs compete?

What better way to open up a blog than with a discussion of blogs?

The Economist has an interesting article up on the future on the blog and its role vs. mainstream media.

The Guardian also has some interesting stuff to say about blogging and journalism.

My own opinion is that bloggerrs will over estimate themselves and their importance and relevance and that in turn the traditional journalists will underestimate the blogging community and the potential for a “different” brand of journalism.

I do not believe that the mainstream media will use blogs as anything other than a way to augment their cash flow and that bloggers will have a hard time doing much true journalism.

I do see huge potential as blogs being a very good way to editorialize, but in the end that may be it.
