Goodbye Hatena. I think Hatena is a most interesting blog system in this country, but it was not my taste. Fed up with weird method to write a post, not familiar with its diary system. Completely cannot understand which it reject to paste embed code. So I’ll move to another, normal system.

During his intellectual showdown with John Bolton Tuesday, Jon Stewart argued that Abraham Lincoln was a successful President because he brought his rivals into the cabinet to ensure all points of view were heard. His point was that the Bush administration is comprised entirely of yes men that share the same worldview which leads to stubborn and unpragmatic policies. Bolton quickly shot this down, telling Jon his historical account of Lincoln was flat wrong. In order to verify the point, Jon called up Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of the book Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln.
"Bush Administration only serve for the people who vote him..." wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Better think twice before you pick a fight with some dude. Especially if he is a karate cop instructor out to stop you hitting yo' ho'. Or schlap yo' ho' at ho'
In explaining the Sequoia high-priest's resignation from Google's board, Valleywag thought it credible that Moritz's increasingly administrative role at the venture capital partnership would make demands, all be it tiresome demands, on his time. You had some other suggestions. One VC advised a look at Google stock sales. "VCs resign from a board when they want to sell." Valleywag commenter interdigitation says Moritz is a visionary who's moving on to the next big thing. Sycophant! But of all the speculative backstories, we like this one, from an anonymous tipster, the best:

■Who Own the US National Debt?
This pie chart makes it easy to see that, contrary to popular belief, the US is not indebted to foreign countries as much as to ourselves. That’s still a lot of debt! The Skeptical Optimist has the statistics, and an enlargable pie chart.

Viral Video for PokerShow that has come under attack by Muslim groups as being insensitive. Turns out the Muslim media watchgroup was a fake--set up by the agency to get more traffic to the poker site. Brilliant.

While the clip is amusing, the key point is that it seems clear that Stewart recognizes how Viacom's decision is doing more harm than good: "But to me, the situation is that there's a ton to gain for both companies. Viacom, they put their content on YouTube, it gets exposure, people know about their programming... it's a win for everybody in this situation." This, of course, echoes Stewart's own statements from a few years ago about how great it was that people were downloading and watching the show (pre-YouTube). Too bad Stewart's bosses don't listen to him on these things.
■Top ten things ten years of professional software development has taught me
I was reading this top ten list yesterday, and I thought I can problably come up with my own list of things no-one told me before I started developing software for money. This is my list.

- The difficult part of software development is communication
- Learn to say no
- If everything is equally important, then nothing is important
- Don't over-think a problem
- Dive really deep into something, but don't get hung up

- Your colleagues are your best teachers
- It all comes down to working software

“Worst english ever”
“He says he can speak French 'very well' because he'd been living there for 6 months. I'm sorry but I didn't get what he said when he was speaking French (and I'm French).”
■Do Female Soldiers Get Any Privacy?
The women usually curtain off a single-sex section in the back with sheets and ponchos. But this kind of self-segregation carries the risk of alienating women from their platoon, depriving them of Army chatter, or making them seem as though they need special treatment. In particular, females in leadership positions can't afford to live apart from the male soldiers they command. For them this means changing clothes inside sleeping bags―a practice many male soldiers also adopt.
Hilarious. We mentioned last week that Viacom could face legal action over its decision to delete YouTube clips that weren’t infringing. That’s exactly what has transpired today, with MoveOn.org Civic Action and Brave New Films suing Viacom in a San Francisco court.
The case revolves a clip called “Stop the Falsiness”. It’s a parody of “The Colbert Report” that was posted to YouTube - parody is considered fair use, and by removing the clip, Viacom is being accused of misrepresentation under the DMCA. In short, it’s an abuse of the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) to order the removal of clips that aren’t infringing. No surprises about who filed the lawsuit: the EFF.
Viacom's DMCA takedown notices continue to generate controversy. The media giant fired off more than 100,000 notices to YouTube earlier this year, but it appears to have caught numerous legitimate videos in the crossfire. One of those clips, called "Stop the Falsiness," satirizes comedian Stephen Colbert, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has filed a federal lawsuit against Viacom, asking the judge to declare the video non-infringing.
Thirteen-year-old Katharine Tuck’s sneakers are equal opportunity offenders. They smell as bad as they look. Now, the Utah seventh grader is $2,500 richer because of it: On Tuesday, she out-ranked six other children to win the 32nd annual National Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest, stinking up the joint with a pair of well-worn 1 1/2-year-old Nikes so noxious they had the judges wincing.
■ Sen. Boxer lays smack down
During AL Gore's testimony on Capital Hill, Barbara Boxer had to explain to Senator Inhofe that he is no longer the Chairman - a consequence of losing the election. Inhofe (Global Warming denier) shot off his silly question, but didn't want to hear any answer from Al Gore.
■ Pretty Intense Japanese Lesson
Hey guys. I'm fluent in Japanese, so I decided to share some of my skills with you. It's pretty intense.
If you don't know what I'm saying - LEARN JAPANESE!!! (or check out the original video haha)
つーか、ここにPretty Intense Seriesがいっぱい……。 Floridaに住んでるくせに「ゆうつべ」なんて言葉を知っているところを見るとネットの上でも相当日本語に慣れ親しんでいると思われる。
A typical rubber band is 3.8cm in diameter and can be shot 5m46cm. Therefore, a rubber band 10m in diameter should be able to fly 1437 meters, or almost a mile. Right? Japanese scientists study the issue. American TV could learn a thing or two from Japanese television!
"no. the japanese don't know physics."
"How the hell do you figure that? Assuming the undefined equation here is linear seems like a complete shot in the dark to me, and it doesn't seem to make much sense logically. If I make a paper airplane out of an 8.5x11" sheet of paper and it flies 15 feet, that means that I can take a massive sheet of paper, fold that into an airplane, and it'll easily break the world record... right?"
"Japanese dont know physics? - I'm worried.... I ride in their cars often..."
"big, heavy rubber band is going to have a large inertia, which is a physical property that explains how much an object resists a change in motion. that, and it was heavy and was not resilient enough to give it enough force to make it fly very far."
"You can't just scale up things and expect their performance to increase in proportion.Ants can carry more than 10 times their weight, elephants can't.Not every physical property is in proportion with size.Some things are in proportion with size squared or with size cube"
The rumors of a joint venture to counter the perceived Google-YouTube threat, dubbed “Clown Co.” by Google executives, are now confirmed,
Were this a movie, one could call it Google against the seven dwarves.
In 1999, freaked out by the instant popularity of music download services such as Napster, the music industry decided to build its own. EMI, BMG, and, later, Sony Music -- three of the top five record labels -- teamed up with Real Networks to offer legal downloads, an alternative to the mainly pirated tracks swapped by Napster users. What happened? Musicnet, which offered only 100 downloads for the $10 per month it charged, won a place in PC World's list of the worst tech products of all time. It was sold off in 2005.
迂闊に持ち出すと何故かバカにされるような雰囲気が漂っているのが嫌なんだけど､これってNicholas Negroponteが大昔のベストセラー｢Being Digital｣の中で､必ずしもTV番組が電波で配信される必要はない、と言っていた事にほんのちょっと近づいただけ。｢多国籍軍｣は電波を捨てたわけではないので、おまけみたいなもの。既に放映したコンテンツを改めてDVDで売るのと大して違わない。日本ではもうすぐアナログ電波を｢捨てる｣ことになっているけど(大笑い)､ネットとは関係ない動きだ。
- Will users/viewers be able to upload their own videos as well (lots of this on MySpace Video already, could be incorporated)?
Joost looks like a humble distributor, merely relaying the channels of content owners. And that is its genius. Joost looks just like a harmless cable operator to the big media companies, such as Viacom, which are suing more adventurous web video projects.
The programming makers know exactly how this works: they pay per user for advertising supported channels which they're trying to get off the ground; and charge the distributor for must-have offerings such as ESPN.
“Joost is kind of a quirky thing, it’s fundamentally based on the channels concept, which, like I’ve said, is kind of an old media way of doing things…Pieces of content can be organized any which way, and a channel is just one of many ways of organizing those.”
■The Liberation of Baghdad
Birk has made a number of paintings, including The Liberation of Baghdad, seen here. The paintings are more satirical and ironic, and many are based on paintings of the glories of war in Napoleon’s time and from Russian socialist images of battlefield glories.
The Liberation of Baghdad, says Birk, is about “what we were told would happen ― happy, joyfully liberated Iraqis welcoming American troops as we free them from the shackles of oppression.”
■Stephen EagleMan !?
After challenging viewers to make him a Jedi hero, Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert described "an actual dream" of his. It featured a squadron of Nancy Pelosi clones, Soledad O'Brien in a gold bikini, and Karl Rove's sail barge.
ねぇ、ぜんがめさん。なんでStephen ColbertがNancy Pelosiと戦ってるの? 船に乗っているのはRupert Murdochかと思いきや、Karl RoveとかいうBush政権のDeputy Chief of Staffらしいし、ビキニ姿のおばさんはBill O'Reillyとケンカしてた女かと思ったら、 Soledad O’BrienとかいうCNNのキャスターらしいけど、この二人がColbert側というのもよく分からないんスよ。
「When Martin Luther King had a dream, it was of a world living in brotherhood and racial harmony. Steven Colbert also has a dream, but it’s vaguely kinky and somewhat less reputable.」と書いてあるところを見ると、反Colbertなの? それとも「I think you called it a bizarre parody of a parody, or something like that; and that’s precisely what it was intended (obviously) to be.」とあるとおり、それとは逆なの?
■Ponyo on a Cliff
The new movie, called Gake no ue no Ponyo (Ponyo on a Cliff), was written by Miyazaki himself and is the story of a little boy called Sosuke and a goldfish princess named Ponyo who wants to become human. The sketch above is of Ponyo, with Sosuke's hand holding her bowl. Apparently the character Sosuke will be based on childhood photographs of Miyazaki's son, Goro
What I love about this video is what goes unsaid in it. All we see is a guy playing Tetris on a credit card reader, which is both a taunt ("I play games with your secure access technology!") and a warning ("If I can play Tetris on here, imagine how easy it would be for me to steal your cash.") After a few months of this vid floating around online, British TV show Watchdog caught on and did a long and controversial segment about how easy it is for technically-knowledgeable thieves to steal your PIN number from a distance while you're paying for something or withdrawing cash. Murdoch and Drimer are in the vid showing how simple it is to steal 50 quid from one of the show's producers while he's paying for a sandwich at lunch.
A man from China is to finally have a huge tumour removed today after discovering it 17 years ago. Huang Liqian, 58, first discovered a bizarre growth on the back of his neck in 1990, but chose to ignore it. However, as the years rolled on, it continued to increase in size at a rapid pace, with the growth ballooning to 15kg.
In his new blog, BoBo C. Tiberius examines the day in history and rates whether it’s good or bad based on its "historical performance"!
An online game operator has demanded that banned players donate blood to be allowed back into the game. Moliyo, which runs a 3D massively multiplayer online game in China, made the demand after banning 120,000 players who attempted to hack the game.
More than 100 players had already signed up to exchange half a litre (1 pint) of blood for game accounts. The company has also offered free accounts to ordinary players who give blood.
According to the announcement, the players must attend a public blood donation drive in the city of Nanjing tomorrow afternoon. Locked accounts will be reopened within 3 days.

■Prokofiev Piano Sonata No.7 3rd mov.
Glenn Gouldによるプロコフィエフのピアノ・ソナタ7番の第三楽章。なんちゅうカッコイイ曲なんだ。Glenn Gouldはカナダのピアニストで稀代の天才変人。いつも愛用の低い椅子を持ち歩き、それでしか演奏しない。おまけに興が乗ってくると演奏中にも鼻歌を歌いだすので､録音にもしっかりと残ってしまうwwww CD買えば分かるけど､しっかり｢グールド自身の歌い声も一部ございます。｣と注記されている。そんなん、この人だけだろww
■Value Of Prostitution
[(δU/δL) / (δU/δC) | Sp=0] ≤ w - [(δU/δr) / (δU/δC) | S = 0]
U is your satisfaction. It's what you, as a prostitute, care about - the satisfaction you gain from selling your services. Economists like to call it "utility", which is why they like to use the letter "U".
L is the amount of leisure you have.
C is the amount of goods and services you, as a consumer, consume.
S is the amount of prostitution you, as a prostitute, sell to your customers.
W is the going price for prostitutes.
R is a measure of your reputation.
That's the poetic, simple way of putting it. But prostitution is by tradition considered vulgar, so the team also gives a vulgar, all-words description: "An individual will start to sell prostitution if the price for selling the first amount of prostitution, minus the costs of a worsened reputation for doing so, exceeds the shadow price of leisure evaluated at zero prostitution sold."
