Once this wiki is up and running to our satisfaction, we'll start it up again. -------- dunno where this lives: Here's where we sketch the outlines of a practical, workable system of mutual exchange, in order to actually implement a functioning economic system based on NonCoercion and DeCentralization, with the object of inducing the provisioning of a diverse and robust InfoCommons. Say what? A Gift Economy means everything is free, but it also means that everyone - or almost everyone - must contribute. In the Potlatch economy of the northwest, social surplus was distributed in a series of festivals in which the wealth of individuals and clans was given way in a lavish display of generosity. Each gift enhanced the reputation of both giver and reciever, but it was incumbent upon the recipient to make an equal or greater gift at the appropriate time. Social standing was entirely dependant on one's willingness and ability to give. In a face-to-face community of reasonably small size, this sort of 'peer-pressure' works well to encourage all parties to abide by the unwritten, but very clear, rules of reciprocity in a gift culture. This may not work so well on the internet. The first ever wiki site was founded in 1994 as an automated supplement to the PortlandPatternRepository. The site was immediately popular within the pattern community, largely due to the newness of the internet and a good slate of InvitedAuthors. The site was, and remains, dedicated to PeopleProjectsAndPatterns. Lots of links to as yet very few individuals; here's one: Alexander has his own web site at who knows how should really talk to his web guy about refactoring this site - very confusing... Yes, please, he has so many well-placed friends in the computer industry that someone must be able to help.

It only remains to stress that -s is a singular ending. Trousers, pants, jeans, scissors -- all purport to be plural but each is a singular object. A "spectacle" is all you can see, but "spectacles" is one small thing on your nose. Having an -s on the end is such a sign of the singular that it debars many a work from even having a plural -- quietus, nous, chaos, animus, hiatus... As a final clincher, look at any English verb. He works, they work. Which is plural? Which has the -s ending? I thank you. -- ))))) are slightly more boxed but certainly not better combined than they be at my place .. ..I'm not sure that I'm ready to call this a vindication yet though .. .  -------------- ----  this is the counterpart of the fear blog which features conspiracy - -- - - and as a last blast on this station (but not the topic): What is giFT, you ask? giFT is an acronym for "giFT: Internet File Transfer". The giFT project is an initiative to attempt to unify the divided peer-to-peer community following Napster's demise. The basic underlying concept of giFT is that there should be no direct connection between the user interface preferred by the user, and the back-end protocol. This is tackled using a collection of several components together: src/ The giFT daemon acts as a "bridge" between multiple backend file sharing protocols, exposing them to the end developer in an easy to understand XML-like interface protocol. Yes, I know what you're thinking "hey, that sounds a lot like Jabber!". Well, you're partly correct. Jabber worked by setting up a finite number of translation servers on the Internet, requiring the user to authenticate with one extra remote server in order to take advantage of this technology. We feel that the task would be better handled by a local daemon that acts transparently to the user, feeding the benefits solely to the developer. The giFT team believes that the best way to improve the state of file sharing on the Internet is to allow developers to take on the complex (and unique) tasks specific to their project, rather than re-inventing the wheel that each interface and network must have.  ------------- By the way I meet an old (tecnocratic) acq on the plural of chaos quest: --- A debate, nearly a dispute, at least in New York, divides the Green movement . It is about the system of representation and/or voting.One group is pro one-person-one-vote, the other prefers commitees system of representation. I believe that this is hiding - yet reaching - a different understanding: the Collective Knowledge on which Democracy relies, is largely relative to the Artificial Intelligence that our computers are about to graft into Society. Rather than a long explanation, a short reminder will advise how we must be lucid in regards to this. We shall soon pass the issue of 2001 Space Odyssey (Clark/Kubrik). When that odyssey was held back by a paranoid computer, it is not difficult to see that the mad computer of the model ignores mankind's life for no reason but the projection of our own unawareness of its effect upon us. This reflexion on the intuition of Art, and SF literature, should suffice to catch our attention. The Artificial Intelligence, the thinking machine, the thinking network is the tool, the support, which was expected and needed for democratic achievement. When we realize that the whole Hermetic Tradition stemming from Antiquity, from Greece then Rome, the Middle-Ages, and Renaissance, conveyed the idea of statues which were to speak and heal, there is little question that we are just acquiring the tool, the algorithm, which was requested already by Plato, reporting the collapse of Athens by 400BC. He explained that democracy was delayed, while Athen's republic crumbled for the lack of the ability to compute with the cypher - this is the logic of code that is named today "Cyphermathics". The reason why the Voting System is but an alibi for this "cyphermathics" is because this new logic is introduced thourough a phase of chaos. Chaos is not avoidable. What is avoidable is to lose everything in this phase. What is possible is to survive the chaos. This is possible if one anticipates the paranoia - in other words, if we are aware that Artificial Intelligence is the principal factor that must be integrated into the ecological restoration of Earth. The Tradition of Magic & Machination (Hermeticism, that is the pool of Science in Christianity before the Modern Age) prescribed a method to overcome a chaos it predicted right from the first early ages of primitive and intuitive thinking. It is a well defined practice (I call it PLAN, alias PLural ANalysis; it was called the Art of Memory, and it is the implementation of the long awaited Cyphermatics) whose context I want to underline in this presentation.

- one of the folks there is a logger and he has this to say about the Wired article by Dibble ('in gold we trust):  "You want to be radical? You don't need to blow up the bank, just burn your bank account. And for that you are going to need an alternative. What is the alternative? E-dinar." I think economic warfare is pretty fascinating, like in the tungsten/wolframite markets of Portugal and Spain during WWII. Although the article acknowledges e-gold is pretty far from wresting away control of the money system from central banks, technology is certainly supplementing traditional (and arguably archaic) currency institutions. An interesting counterpoint is the rising popularity of decentralized money creation. posted by kliuless  ------ snip; see 5-14.htm ------said as much in our discussion of currency systems a while back, "On the whole, I like the arbitrary quality of baseless currency. There's somethinf perfect and abstract about it, and it would be a pity to tie the ethereal stuff down to oats and wheat." [we were sort of talking about the effectiveness of a commodity reserve currency as originally envisioned by keynes and benjamin graham (but the white plan was adopted at bretton woods instead)] personally, i like the idea of community currencies (the links at the end) to supplement national currencies better. credit creation as is i think is pretty crude. monetary policy currently assumes (rightly) a national economy and structures money growth accordingly. the problem is our economy isn't homogenous. plus moral hazard is increasingly problematic, the roots of which partly lie in the blunt tool of the fed funds rate. it invites oversteering because there's no fine tuning. you can see how awkward it is by the fed having to continually adjust rates, second-guess markets, issue statements and jawbone. and when they get it wrong it wreaks havoc not only in the US but all around the world. i think having more types of currencies (precious metals, commodity reserve, corporate script, community based) would do a lot to stabilize economies. people would have the choice to conduct their affairs in the currency that makes the most sense (kind of like operating systems!) a more democratic money system would also do a lot to increase the general welfare/wealth creation as well as smooth out the business cycle. hopefully national governments aren't so jealous that they'll open up the monopoly they've had on money to some friendly competition :) posted by kliuless -------------Me: It occurs to me that the desire for 'baseless' and impersonal currencies is inversely proportionate to the amount of ego bloat and luxury lechering goin on.

Hosking [excerpt] Solzhenitsyn's revision of the traditional version Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn DVESTI LET VMESTE 509pp. Moscow: Russkii put'. 176Rs. 5 85887 110 0 In spite of mounting evidence to the contrary, we are still inclined to think of Russians as congenitally anti-Semitic. We carry mental images of Cossacks with whips charging Jewish crowds and smashing into Jewish shops. Yet in 1915, at the height of the First World War, when Russian mobs in Moscow were trashing and plundering German shops, Jews - whose surnames were often indistinguishable from German ones - would hang notices outside their enterprises saying "Jewish shop". It is reported that the hooligans would then pass them by. It is true that the Russian-Jewish relationship has often entailed suspicion and tension during the two centuries or more since Jews were first absorbed in large numbers into the Russian Empire. But at the same time, seldom have two peoples of such different ethnic origins achieved such a degree of coalescence as the Russians and the Jews. This is one of the great love-hate relationships of history, and it has left an indelible mark on both peoples: Jews were prominent in the Bolshevik party which seized power in Russia in 1917, while Jewish exiles from Russia formed the main ranks of the Zionist movement and created the state of Israel. The first volume of Dvesti let vmeste (Two hundred years together) is an account of this relationship by one of the outstanding writers of the twentieth century. We have tended to forget Alexander Solzhenitsyn in recent decades, but in the 1960s and 70s, everything he wrote seized the immediate attention of the world's literati. Not all the comment on him was favourable, since he was seen as anti-Western, anti-liberal and a Russian nationalist. Some whispered that he was anti-Semitic. Not the right person, then, to write about the Jews in Russia? On the contrary, when he launched this book in Moscow last summer, Solzhenitsyn declared that he wanted to help reconcile Russians and Jews. The result is a fascinating work, written with all its author's verve and linguistic inventiveness. It is sympathetic - though far from uncritical - towards the Jews and often disparaging about the weakness of Russian government and the fickleness of Russian public opinion. The partitions of Poland between 1772 and 1795 brought nearly a million Jews into the Russian Empire. Over the next century, they were to increase fivefold. Their energy, communal cohesion and highly literate education made them formidable competitors, well placed to take advantage of the economic growth of Russia during the nineteenth century. Many Jews enriched themselves in occupations like tax and liquor-farming, sugar-refining, the grain and timber trade. By the second half of the century, Jews were in leading positions in the railways, banking, newspapers, the professions and culture. The so-called Pale of Settlement in the west and south, to which most of them were confined, proved extremely porous in practice, and not only because of exemptions for the wealthy and educated. The salaries of some big-city police officers were probably exceeded by the backhanders they received from Jews living illegally. By the end of the nineteenth century, Jews were split into two major categories: on the one hand, those living in the main cities, largely assimilated to Russian language, culture and ways of life, and so successful as to arouse chronic envy among other peoples; and on the other, the majority, far from affluent, many in fact dirt-poor, living in a shtetl somewhere in the Pale, visiting the synagogue regularly, taking their disputes to the rabbi and observing the traditional dietary laws. The imperial regime reacted to the success of the urban Jews like proverbial rabbits in headlights. Both the Government and the Orthodox Church saw themselves as embattled, constantly under threat from border tribes and disloyal ethnic groups, as well as from religious sects whose zeal always seemed more intense than that of ordinary peasant Orthodox believers. The Jews appeared to the servants of Church and State to be ultra-disloyal and ultra-zealous, and, to make matters worse, they were energetic, talented and living in the strategic western approaches to the imperial heartland. So they had to be confined and regulated. When Moscow merchants complained about the Jews' competition, the Government restricted their trade to Lithuania, Belorussia and Ukraine. This was the first step towards setting up the Pale of Settlement, where all except wealthy or highly qualified Jews were supposed to live for the next century. The Pale was a measure of the Jews' success. It was the only measure of its kind in an empire which otherwise promoted inter-ethnic mixing. Who would have dreamt of confining the Tatars, the Georgians or even the Germans in that way? - --- Russian Jews charge Solzhenitsyn with altering history MOSCOW (JTA) -- Nobel Prize winner Alexander Solzhenitsyn is being accused of distorting the history of Russian Jewry in his new book on Russian-Jewish relations. In the introduction to "200 Years Together," a 500-page treatise, the famed novelist says he is "appealing to both sides, Russian and Jewish, to come to patient understanding and to acknowledge their own share of blame." But the controversial author takes a position on the czarist-era pogroms at odds with most historians. Solzhenitsyn, 83, blames the pogroms on a grass-roots movement, exculpating the Russian state from any responsibility in the anti-Jewish attacks. He also blames the "liberal intelligentsia" -- often a code word for Jews -- for exaggerating the extent of the pogroms. That does not go over well in a community that suffered the pogroms' fury. "Solzhenitsyn's book is anti-Semitic and mendacious. It is deliberately distorting the history of Russian Jews," charged Victor Dashevsky, a Jewish historian who heads the Moscow Anti-Fascist Center. The book covers Russian-Jewish relations from the late 18th century -- when the partition of Poland placed large numbers of Jews in the Russian Empire -- until the Russian Revolution of 1917. This is not the first time Solzhenitsyn has made headlines. He first burst onto the world literary scene in the 1960s as a Soviet dissident whose novels -- including "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich" and "The Gulag Archipelago" -- exposed the repression of Soviet communism. His initial reputation as a beacon of freedom and enlightenment makes the current controversy especially poignant. Yet Solzhenitsyn ceased to be the darling of the West some time ago, when he made known his questionable attitudes toward democracy and Jews. In December 1999, before Russia's last parliamentary elections, he was quoted on Russian television as being fearful of a Jewish conspiracy against Russia. But for some, Solzhenitsyn always will be remembered for his dissident activity. "Solzhenitsyn is not an anti-Semite. He remains a banner of my generation, for Jews and non-Jews," said Mark Kajdan, a Jewish researcher with the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Sol. is not known in Russia as an anti-Semite. He's known as a lot of other things -- hack, pompous ass, traitor, society's conscience, back-to-tsarism lunatic, irrelevant anachronism, depending on the person -- but not as an anti-Semite. This puts me in mind of one of those anecdotes I'm fond of recounting: I was, um, imbibing with a friend of mine, a Russian artist in his early 40s, when we began talking about Sol. He said, "I remember back in the 70s Solzhenitsyn could do no wrong. But then I read an American magazine that had somehow been smuggled into the country, and Solzhenitsyn was basically arguing for a nuclear first strike against the Soviet Union. And I thought to myself, 'Alexander Isayevich is whoring himself to the Americans. I can understand that, he's a father and he wants money for his children. But you know what? I'm a father too. So my children should die so his can have piano lessons. Fuck you, Solzhenitsyn." Chris Doss The Russia Journal-----------

I have no way to reach Pim since the mail to Zeus something or other bounced and google doesn't turn him up either, nor could I find that damn conference he is supposedly gone to visit.

What? -Neale) ------  b and though I CC'd it to you it probably didn't hit target since I called you nutlog@etc instead of nutcote; this is the extended text: hi again, I'll try again <<<with corrections and wracksels of memory>>>: hi, I have already spent many hours retrieving <<<should be trying to retrieve>>> a log I initially found <<<more like stumbled upon>>> checking for poetpiet <<<searchterm>>> with google, it then turned up in the 70s or 80s <<<hits I mean>>>; it <<<the log>>> has a darkish but bright blue background and uses a pic (screenshots and such) to illustrate each item which look quite uniform in size <<<items and pics I mean>>>; the content tends to be fringy and esoteric, noncurrent and obscure.   Google don't list it anymore ------ <<<you would not believe the amount of search phrases I tried: most illustrated (and/or visual) log (and or blog); categorized weblogs, log categories (I did find a site that does actually categorize blogs by color but 'my' blog is not among the small batch of samples>>> and I can't find record of it in my files. I hope you know who this mystery blogger is (I believe he is australian). ----------------- I have tried a record amount of search phrases and am appaled that their isn't even anybody else who noticed that all the qualities summed up above and reworded many ways doesn't seem to even come close, I think search engines are out of their depth when it comes to  logs and those trying to categorize them seem to have given up as well but you would think that a most consistently and just plain most illustrated log with all sorts of other distinctions (fringe and esoteric didn't get me there either) could be retrieved. ------------- Hmm, which address did you try? It worked for me... I view it from several ISP's....   Anyway, Will update in the next few minutes :) :) --------- in his guest book: I wonder if you meant this place to post my query on your site? I'll go ahead and put it here, you can always move it; I didn't see a forum around here. ------ Help needed identifying a possibly vanished log:

Some of the exchanges on this topic went missing yesterday when I somehow failed to safe (the changes to) this file at closing time (each log out these machines suffer erasure/ enjoy cleanout too -- on top of that I happened to dump stuff from my mail trash. I did a back up ((which I don't usually do, I usuallly upload and do one backup instead)) but somehow excluded the file I had lovingly worked on so much -- a new rainbow filled table for instance, reconstructed below).

Reviews appeared in several newspapers and most of them were at least sympathetic. Some even enthousiastic. It appears that most people appreciate the gargantuan nature of the enterprise, and the fact that no translation could ever be completely flawless.

I'm writing somewhat of a horror story centered around a kind of zombified idea of FW coming to life every 11 years and an old man who is there every year to stop it (it's kind of hard to describe, I've attached a small section's work in progress, so a bit rough)...and a friend of mine has written a 400 page or so nearly line by line comparison between FW and Aleister Crowleys Book of Lies and Liber Aleph (with tracings of the Wake to all kinds of other systems), and some of it creeps into my music as well...anyone else out there using the Wake as a springboard for new things?

Subject: I seen the light, I mean . . . Date: Sun, 09 Jun 2002 06:02:47 -0400 From: pensievepiet To:, « Previous | Next » me being a free bird who has a genuine commitalophobia (probably born out of stingyness) which drives 'his' women away (or drives them to drive him away, steer clear of him, avoid him, exclude him), accuse these ladies of the worst properties I can find on the bad side of cruelty but if any of it was more than an egoistical and subjective feeling (sorry for myself) it would have to be reflected in the correspondingly atrocious results on the progeny in question (and not just in my moods ((black)) and ((darker than dank)) feelings towards and about the 'fair' sex), but such is not the case; it seems the opposite happens, that things work out for the better this way. In any case, this must be the feeling I manage to retain in order to be nice to the mother of the second (daughter, now 6 or 7, the most beautiful creature I ever saw, just yesterday) so that she don't keep on obstructing contact out of bad habit which came to an abrupt end (that same blessed yesterday); I get to see her again today. It was amazing, she was told who I was, said papa, got a cuddle elephant, hit me with it, hid behind her mother then between my legs from behind, allowed me to write in her mother's agenda and then for the next hour or so wouldn't let go of me and at the cut off point (guess who was responsible for that?) kissed me with her angelic self before reminding me of the date we cajoled out of her mother. God, I am undone. I want a real relationship, plenny of adventure, fucking and reading and everything else together before heading into a whole cycle with someone who will value presence, alertness, aptitude and inspiration higher than goddamn reliability, signatures, and boring shit like bank accounts (and no, I am not being unappreciative but you just don't make me feel I am obliged to shell out cause you consider yourself a conveyor of the insight it takes to inculcate guilt over realizing how hard it is to put up with being offended by me when all I am doing is dispensing advice to be voluntarily complied with if at all out of the goodness of my dear loney heart!)  . It's not like I want to get my fingers in my own child's hair at ANY cost is it??? But maybe I am keeping my hands on the till too much. Life is a battle between live and dead treasure ain tit?

part of a thread on blogging at lbo-talk (reposted at dutch indy along with some translated osama poems found at COMMENTARY Antidote to the Liberal Monotone: Blogging By NORAH VINCENT April 4 2002 The Internet is irritating the liberal establishment. There´s a simple, predictable reason for this: It´s awash in uncontrolled speech and unedited squibs of the haphazard kind that people might just prefer to the pigeonholed blurbiage of mainstream--printed--newspapers and magazines. Obviously, this could be disastrous for the left´s carefully combed and bowdlerized opus of ideals served up daily on the gray pages of nearly every big-city newspaper in the country. The Internet is a chaos of heterodoxy. It is a place where you can disseminate dangerous notions. And people are doing just that. What people? Well, the vast right-wing conspiracy, of course. You remember them? All of repentant Clinton basher David Brock´s former friends. They´re alive and well on the Web. They´re writing Web logs, or "blogs." Also called "me-zines," these vanity sites are proliferating at an alarming rate and attracting substantial daily readership. One of the most popular such sites,, written by the eponymous pundit and former New Republic editor, gets about 35,000 hits, or visits, a day. Another,, run by University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds, just reported a record 43,000 visits in one day. A year ago, it was almost unknown. Meanwhile, author and former New Republic writer Mickey Kaus´ irreverent is equally popular while serving up a sharp reality check on the accepted blather. There are, of course, blogs of all persuasions on the Net, but the stars of the genre tend to tilt right of center. This is understandable, given the leftward swing of the mainstream press. The Web is an outlet for ideologically homeless opinion-mongers, and the smart ones are using it. Their audience? Readers and viewers who are hungry for alternative points of view. Most blogs are running commentaries on the day´s events. They feature links to noteworthy articles from publications around the world, the Jerusalem Post to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Readers get the blogger´s take on the issues and then can read the relevant news items for themselves. Best of all, the bloggers often critique the way the news is reported, exposing subtle biases in language or filling in conspicuously omitted facts. Kaus and Sullivan do this especially well. This may be exactly the reason why they and their fellow bloggers are making enemies fast. They´re touching a nerve. The Boston Globe´s Alex Beam, for example, wrote derisively of the genre in a recent column: "Welcome to Blogistan, the Internet-based journalistic medium where no thought goes unpublished, no long-out-of-print book goes unhawked and no fellow ´blogger,´ no matter how outre, goes unpraised." Eric Alterman wrote in the Nation: "While [Sullivan´s] site arouses a certain gruesome car-wreck fascination, it serves primarily as a reminder to writers of why we need editors. [It] sets a standard for narcissistic egocentricity that makes Henry Kissinger look like St. Francis of Assisi." Why are Web logs so infuriating to their shrewish detractors? Is it really the narcissism? Or is it the political opinions being expressed? Ask yourself this question: If Palestinian intellectual Edward W. Said were blogging, would Alterman and Beam be calling him a navel gazer? Or would they praise his brave alternative point of view and complain that the mainstream press is too conservative? Web logs are infuriating because they are thoughtful alternatives to the self-important New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post and their toady satellites, much of whose reporting has become hardly less biased than the bloggers´. Bloggers at least have the honesty to admit their biases up front. They don´t pretend to be objective. But they do provide a healthy criticism of the liberal establishment´s hopelessly arrogant monotone. What´s more, they make news interactive, so that we can all stop yelling at the television and actually do something. Readers can opine, as well as argue, grapple or exchange expletives with their host. That´s something you´ll never get in print. As one popular blogger, Minneapolis Star Tribune columnist James Lileks (, put it: "The newspaper is a lecture. The Web is a conversation." Amen. * Norah Vincent is a senior fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, a think tank set up after Sept. 11 to study terrorism. ===== Kevin Dean Buffalo, NY ICQ: 8616001 AIM: KDean75206 Buffalo Activist Network More on blogging here: nettime.htm Scholarly history of Lilith-myths
