culture shock

 It didn't occur to me right away, but I think I've been blogging for work lately. I'm occupying most of my day with keeping this Military Action Map and this Baghdad Map updated. I gather information from wire reports and present it in blurb style in reverse-chronological order -- how bloggy.

 Culture Shock! Okay, finding out Nora Ephron writes poetry (in the Times!) was a bit much, but Matt Dillon is directing? Since when? His new movie is out next month, starring him, Natascha McElhone, and Gerard Depardieu: City of Ghosts (trailer). Jeesh, next you'll tell me that Playboy is interviewing Steve Malkmus.

 English-language version of Al-Jazeera's website just launched. Also, here's a Al-Jazeera video livestream.

 Wow, everyone is talking about Where Is Raed? lately. Paul Boutin even sends out the sysadmin brigade on him. Dudes, I talked to him three months ago; he's legit.

 New trivia challenge on Kinda dumb.

 Amy's Robot is one of many out there with an MP3 of Michael Moore's Oscar acceptance speech.

 I didn't buy the Sony V-1 like I said I would. I got the Toshiba M10 instead. I was in a hurry to get a Centrino, and it was the only one available in town. C|Net gave it a good review in their Centrino roundup though. I also thought about the Tablet PC (good PC Mag roundup) but decided it wasn't practical for my needs.

 Godspeed You! Black Emperor Questioned as Suspected Terrorists in Oklahoma.
 Zack De La Rocha and DJ Shadow anti-war MP3: "March of Death".
 New Radiohead album to be titled Hail to the Theif.
