Smile...with Tony and Barbra...

...two singers I love. Joy, the aim of life. This has been a Mercury retrograde of reflection. I awake in a light, silly mood of indica dreams. We create our world, as it creates us.

Cut and paste with Pipes...

...Newsfeeds have been around for a while. Now Yahoo has a new project called Pipes that "is an interactive feed aggregator and manipulator. Using Pipes, you can create feeds that are more powerful, useful and relevant." For example you can create simple mashups of tech sites and clone and custom other Pipes. It is a GUI-based interface for building applications that aggregate RSS feeds and other services, to create and publish Web-based apps from various sources. The site works by letting users "pipe" information from different sources and then set up rules for how that content should be modified (e.g. filtering).

One planet=$10,000...going, going, gone!... scientists are offered cash to discredit the IPCC report on global warming by Exxon/Bush think tank, this video shows how they do it. Would you buy a second hand iPod from George W. Bush?

The Bill...

...or Yates of the Yard. When it's time to go it's time to go. In British politics this can come rather abrubtly. I give Tony Blair one month max, unless he can organise a massive coverup, and they can cost an arm and a leg when time and friends are running out.
