oi, marns. music files? may webspace ako, let's see what we can do.

speaking of surveillance paranoia......

anyone care to read up on WSIS, the WTO of InfoCom? (this is from work, but i think anyone who blogs should know about this stuff. it all boils down to the suit guys versus alt_media; and these corporations pretending to bring technology to developin' countries to train the poah people to use THEIR proprietary software...etc....well it IS more than that:)

WSIS is the first of two global summits dealing with information and communications to be held by the United Nations in Geneva. But the Summit is a smokescreen. Although it talks about the digital divide, knowledge dissemination, social interaction, political engagement, media, education, and health, this language is used to mystify the continuing use of information to protect and advance the interests of global capital.

Over the past months, activists and artists with different backgrounds ranging from indymedia centers to the noborder-networks, from the Free Software movement to community media, from grassroots campaigns to hacker collectives, have been discussing how to intervene in, outside of, counter to, or as an alternative to the agenda and organisation of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) from December 10th to 12th in Geneva, Switzerland. -check out geneva_03

About us

Best described as a Murakami detox support group, we're all fans of the quirkily brilliant Japanese author, Haruki Murakami, and writing about such things as films we've seen recently and books we're reading (not to mention meandering musings on the man's work, of course) helps us to pass time while waiting for the next book from Haruki-baby.
