The Future Of Digital Media

February 11th, 2008

Good bit of history of the digital revolution, then it goes all sci-fi or is it?

Such a sophisticated operation would require the fixed frame of a state intelligence organization; something not found in a loose group, like the one led by the student Mohammed Atta in Hamburg.

– Eckehardt Werthebach, former president of Germany’s Verfassungsschutz intelligence service, comments on the sophistication and complexity of the 9-11 attacks; from a conversation with Christopher Bollyn, December 2001

The Life Cycle

July 10th, 2006

I think the life cycle is all backwards

You should start out dead and get it out of the way.

Then, you wake up in an old age home feeling better every day.

You get kicked out for being too healthy; go collect your pension,
then when you start work, you get a gold watch on your first day.

You work 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement.

You drink alcohol, you party, you’re generally promiscuous and you
get ready for High School.

You go to primary school, you become a kid , you play, you have no
responsibilities, you become a baby, and then…

You spend your last 9 months floating peacefully in luxury, in spa-like
conditions; central heating, room service on tap, larger quarters every
day, and then, you finish off as an orgasm.

I rest my case.
