    Wow, there sure is a lot of ‘hey look at me, hey look at me’ in Xeni’s videos. It distracts a bit from the ideas she is trying to get at.

    I remember Danah Boyd writing about the meaning of Facebook and MySpace for young soldiers. MySpace is therefore banned because young soldiers started telling their friends at home whats really going on in Iraq. And that`s all but positive advertisment for the army.

    “…almost lost the war [?]” Did we almost win the war? As far as I know it’s still going and it doesn’t look too good. I think it might be more accurate to say, “How all our gee-whiz technology still didn’t let us win the war.”

    Combat IT doesn’t work for rebuilding a culture. Is this a surprise to anyone? Schachtman recommends talking to people. Have we reached this point – the numbingly obvious sounds like insight?

    Here I am showing my boss Boing Boing, trying to find the article about the Scots planning on DNA profiling “troublesome” youths, and who do I see? My girlfriend’s cousin! Kickass! I don’t really have a comment on his speech or his perceptive comments.
