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. Click below to run the apology as an
Arabic TV ad on Al Jazeera.<<

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.

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.

Bump!
