All Saints 2000

Slice PDF April 24, 2015

All Saints 2000

They are anywhere but you won’t find

Them easily. They are elusive and

Often shy. Some have a marvellous mind,

Others seem eccentric. They won’t stand

In riches. They are kind

In ways not obvious. Wherever there

Is anguish of the flesh or mind or heart

Their presence can be sensed. They always bear

With the awkward who can play no part

In this world. They share

Strengths with Gandhi, the Dalai Lama. See

How Christlike are their manners. How exact

Their wisdom. They are haunters who set free

Those they harry. Sometimes they are racked,

Often they will be

With children, fools, the difficult. Some have

Special powers but none is a magician.

When others laugh they often will be grave,

So various, they share a great tradition

Which is bound up with love.

You may find one saint talking in a bar

And sharing jokes and views. Extravagant

They never are except in what they bear,

Lovable, a kind of element

Also, sometimes a star.

All Souls

Yesterday the holy ones by name

Were all remembered. We were edified

Yet also sweet affection rang their fame

4: Life in Israel 1988–2004: associations, thoughts and reflections on Social Dreaming

Slice ePub May 23, 2014

Verred Amitzi

For me, the magic of Social Dreaming Matrix is the same exciting and thrilling magic I found in Charlotte Beradt's collection of dreams from the Third Reich period (Beradt, 1968). The challenge is daring to look at dreams, finding something new, even forecasting the future from a present perspective.

There is a great fascination in the dialogue with and between dreams and associations. Reality is intensely coloured, hidden parts of the mosaic of life interconnect, understandings and insights emerge and enlighten us. We are dealing with a link between dream sleep and wakefulness, of cause and effect.

The possibility of deciphering contents and messages from the unconscious layer in dreams and transferring them to the conscious is both nourishing to our way of thinking and critical for our actions.

Yet forecasting, like prophecy, is always uncertain, as the famous proverb claims: “Since the Holy Temple was ruined, prophecy has been given to the fools”. And who wants to be a fool? Furthermore, we are all acquainted with the phenomenon of a “self-fulfilling prophecy”, as we are all “guilty” of projecting our emotions and beliefs on the world around us. We impose our expectations on our environment, and then interpret “reality” accordingly.

The Time-Travel Spammer

Source: Spam Kings
Slice ePub May 27, 2014

In May 2003, millions of Internet users got a refreshing break from the run-of-the-mill spam that routinely invaded their email in-boxes. Instead of hawking mortgages, penis-enlargement pills, or weight-loss products, an email arrived that seemed straight out of a science-fiction novel.[13]

The message offered $5,000 to any vendor capable of promptly delivering a collection of far-fetched gadgets for conducting time travel, including an "Acme 5X24 series time transducing capacitor with built-in temporal displacement" and an "AMD Dimensional Warp Generator module containing the GRC79 induction motor."

Dave Hill, a software programmer in Iowa, normally deleted a couple dozen junk emails every day with hardly a glance. But when he received the time-travel solicitation, he hit the reply button instead. Hill sent the spammer a message saying he could get him what he wanted. With a little deft photo-editing, Hill created a fake online store with all the sci-fi items sought by the would-be time-traveler. In July, Hill even shipped an old hard-drive motor disguised as a "warp generator" to a Massachusetts address provided by the spammer, who said his name was Bob White.

E. Microformats: Extending (X)HTML

Slice ePub May 28, 2014

XHTML stands for the Extensible HyperText Markup Language. HTML 4 was also designed to be extended, albeit much more subtly. In the past few years, there has been a resurging interest in extending HTML and XHTML. XHTML was originally designed to be extended with other XML elements, in other namespaces. In practice, such extensions have yet to meaningfully materialize on the Web.

Instead, using extension mechanisms introduced in HTML 4, such as the class, id, and rel attributes, web designers, developers, and technologists have been extending the semantics of their HTML and XHTML documents. In the past couple of years, common patterns and conventions have emerged for using these mechanisms. Microformats are an effort to standardize these conventions and are specifically designed for ease of use by web authors and to leverage existing interoperable standards. By doing so, microformats have enabled the simple sharing of even more semantic content on the Web without having to learn a new language or duplicate content (either in comments or separate files).
