  • The Cheating Culture

    A bit of hyperlink clicking on lead me to The Cheating Culture. I read the first chapter sample [pdf], and while the book focuses on cheating in American culture, it triggered recognition in me. This shit is happening all over the world.

    I probably won’t buy the book, though I do recommend people read the sample chapter. And while you read it, don’t make the mistake of thinking that you’re not guilty of what is being described. You are guilty, as guilty as I or anyone else.

  • It’s the End of the World as we know it

    Well, this is certainly an interesting tidbit. On the Dutch Tweakers site, where this news story was reposted, a vivid debate erupted about the biblical connection and its implications. It’s refreshing to see techies talk religion. I suspect a lot of them have some sort of conservative religious background.

    It seems to me that technology and spirituality are intermingling more and more. From the lunatic who sees God in his television (anyone read ‘Virtual Light‘? Gibson based that cult on something IRL) to the Matrix trilogy, and now this particular debate.

    Interesting times we live in, that’s for sure.

    A bunch of friends and a camcorder

    Check this out: Assassin Chronicles

    It’s amazing what a bunch of friends with a camcorder and a computer can get done these days. And that’s why I like the Internet so much – without it, stuff like this would never reach an audience.
