The only good terrorist
Orcinus hits the nail on the head (again). He was writing a while back about how Christian extremist terrorists in the U.S. are described as lone nuts or wackos and not identified as terrorists by the FBI or Justice Department. They are always treated as exceptional. I really don't see the different between Eirc Rudolph and Mohammed Atta:
Eric Rudolph and the face of terror. The arrest of Eric Rudolph has made for some interesting stories afterward. I especially was interested in the New York Times piece about the local reaction to the arrest, which opened with this nugget:"He's a Christian and I'm a Christian and he dedicated his life to fighting abortion," said Mrs. ...

Buy, buy!
Hmm, the valuation of RFB just keeps going up at Blogshares. Looks like Chris Pirillo bought 1000 shares recently. We're up to $22,000ish overall. I'm sure that's chump change on the big board, but I do like the shape of those graphs.

Does it matter that I don't have the blogshares logo permanently in my template? I just posted it to the site once and eventually it scrolled off.

Oh, and I still expect this site and my others to disappear some time today and then reappear on Friday or over the weekend.

Oh, and Bill Safire beat me to the punch by writing about how DARPA's Life-Log project is like a diary on steroids. Suddenly I realized that all this blogging is training people to log their personal lives and thoughts on the centralized interweb, the way shoot-'em-up video games have trained us all for special ops.

UPDATE: Yes, we were sidetracked on Friday unavoidably, and then the new OS didn't drive its ethernet card the way it should, and the hard-disk swap did not go as smoothly as planned, and Murphy be praised, lo and finally the work was done fully a week later, and then some. Hallelujah.

Who is RFB?
Radio Free Blogistan is (mostly) the work of Christian Crumlish, xian for short. I am a writer, publisher, artist, and geek. I was born in New York and I live in Oakland, California. My personal blog is called X-POLLEN, my old home page still lingers at Enterzone, a quarterly published from 1994 to 1998. I am also a consultant (mostly content strategy, information architecture, copywriting, and brain surgery). I am also a literary agent. No, I do not have enough pull to get your first novel published.

The purpose of this "web blog" (that's a joke, son) is to document my efforts to research and cobble together something I call my Personal Expression Platform (PEP). I would be happy to adopt someone else's solution if it met my requirements and I were capable of learning it (*cough*, *cough* Paul Ford...).

I am a media junkie and a meme watcher. Once a Dead head, always a Dead head. Some of my sites have multiple contributors.

(Nearly everything I post to a weblog anywhere shows up here at RFB since we get the street traffic over here.) Consider reading or subscribing to the feed for one of this site's subcategories to read just the topics you want.
