CNN - President Bush says Taliban paying a price - transcript of GW's speech announcing the beginning of (covert) U.S. military attacks in Afghanistan.

Robin Trower was excellent! AND IT WAS LOUD!!!!! I've been scatting "Little Bit of Sympathy" all morning:

Bwa-doo-dot boop-ba-dot bwaa-ba-deedle-dot boop-ba-dot bwaa dot da dit-daaaa. Boop-ba-dot bwa-doo-dot boop-ba-dot bwaa-ba-deedle-dot boop-ba-dot Little bit of sympathy waa-dot-boop-baaa.

Dave Winer's DaveNet - Seven Years of DaveNet - some personal thoughts on the seventh anniversary of Dave's first email column.

Tamim Ansary said of the people of Afghanistan: "They're starved, exhausted, hurt, incapacitated, suffering,"

I wondered why this resonated with my western mind and body, and finally figured it out. In the west we're starved, exhausted, hurt, incapacitated and suffering too.

We've grown our systems: freeways, suburbs, airports, skyscrapers, the Internet. Our accomplishments are legendary. But along the way we exhausted our spirit. We forgot people. Our common values impossible. The templates for our fantastic lives are not achievable, and if they were, are not worth living. A full life does not revolve around material gratification. Friendship isn't as they portray it on TV. Life is messier, more confused, and happier than the vacant promise of TV lives.
