War in Life

via Coudal, a lovely commentary on the interstices of life and the permanent 'war'.

Gates in Motion

I made a quick movie of the Gates back in 2005 when AZ and I visited them, and only now (through the curious magic of FrontRow's browser) have I found it again.

It's not much, but it gives you a badly encoded idea of how the movement added to the saffron experience.

Whole Earth Review Symposium

A pity not to be there on 9 November (but one can't just jet off to the Bay Area on a moment's notice), because this evening symposium on the Whole Earth Review, an offshoot of Fred Turner's From Counterculture to Cyberculture: Stewart Brand, the Whole Earth Network, and the Rise of Digital Utopianism looks to be a very interesting evening.

[Turner, Kelly, Brand, Rheingold] will illuminate the extraordinary impact of the Whole Earth Catalog and the American counterculture on contemporary computing and everyday life. The event celebrates the library's one-of-a-kind collection of Whole Earth Papers.

I've not yet read the book - it's on my shorlist, given its overlap and possible deep mining and coverage of an area on my list of things to research. But reviews, such as the recent long piece in the NYT (behind the paywall), have been positive.

The evening is expected to be recorded and made available at, so all is not lost for us far flung intriguees.

WIUX Update

WIUX, the student radio station at Indiana University, recently learned that their LP-FM frequency, 100.3, is under threat. WYGB, a country radio station in a near county is moving to take a large position on the frequency in the near future, and in a troubling FCC policy, the commercial station wins.

More news from the WIUX position, and from the campus newspaper. WYGB's website has no information posted on the matter.

From a personal perspective, I was excited to see 100.3 being used again, it being the old frequency of WQAX. It will be emotionally sad for it to fall of the dial again, worse yet to see it move from a campus-community focus to a commercial one.
