A do-it-yourself apology to the Iraqi people - I'm not familiar with this group, but they describe themselves thusly: >>The Breakthrough Institute believes that we can create a better world by advancing bold solutions grounded in the core values of responsibility, generosity and freedom.<< And among their current actions/campaigns: >>An Apology. As Americans, we need to take matters into our own hands and apologize to the people of the Middle East on Arab TV. We can no longer rely on Bush, Rumsfeld or Powell to handle Middle Eastern diplomacy for the United States.

I think that's a good idea, basically. But it seems that a "remarks" field is conspicuously absent from the form. For that reason only, I'm also weighing the pros and cons of signing.

http://iusedtobelieve.com, "the childhood beliefs site," is becoming quite an addictive pick-me-up during the workday. I heard of it probably about a year ago, but I didn't have time to check it out until recently. Very cute, and anyone who remembers being a kid can relate to a lot of them! (I just got a contribution put up there myself, regarding bees and tuna fish. <g>)

If you find yourself addicted to simple games, don't go to http://www.pogo.com I'm at 127,000 points and still obsessing although getting less so over time fortunately. But I'm still tied to those that require thought.

Tons of great stuff there. Bunch of fun scrabble/boggle like spelling games, Turbo-21 is a blast. They even have poker now, I guess, though without much value behind the points, I can't see it being that great of play.

I got a stunning pair of links on the mideast political context out of <news.> yesterday: Well worth passing along. http://www.mapsofwar.com/ind/imperial-history.html http://www.mapsofwar.com/ind/history-of-religion.html And today at Salon Gary Kamiya, one of the long time Salon voices and a staffer who never took an interest in hanging out in The WELL or at Salon Table Talk posts about his take on the Salon "letters" feature appended to all articles. It's interesting. I cringe when he characterizes all the letters regulars as "readers" because I think some are involved in a conversation, and see themselves as writers in dialog. But the piercing of the veil of publication is well described, in Gary's rich language. And the starred (editor's choice) letters are fascinating too. Salon Letters has become a place where people are anonymous (including some who sometimes have a more fixed identity in Salon Table Talk or who write under their real names here on The WELL) and sometimes quite articulate. The question of volumn and of filtering -- bubbling up the good stuff -- and the question of how feedback changes writers are two issues we're just seeing the start of. One of the letter writers mentioned live performance as being a form where the feedback is immediate and unfiltered. Well, sort of. When I did live performance, some of my troupe would never read reviews, though they were attentive to audience applause, laughter or pacing-induced coughs. Several, like myself, were very shy people who could take a risk on stage that they might not take in a conversation with a friend. I don't think these layers of distance and or unexpected intense familiarity are so simple or so new. I'm sure we're all going to keep bumping up against them. http://www.salon.com/opinion/kamiya/2007/01/30/writing Bump!
