Fin lille opsummering af spammens fortrædeligheder, inklusiv disse sjove facts;
Den amerikanske Federal Trade Commission har for at teste høstmaskinernes effektivitet placeret 250 nyoprettede e-mailadresser på udvalgte hjemmesider, i nyhedsgrupper og chat rooms. Efter seks uger havde ni ud af ti adresser på hjemmesider og i nyhedsgrupper modtaget i alt 3.300 spam-mails. Allerværst stod det til i chat rooms, hvor en adresse allerede ni minutter efter placeringen modtog det første spam.

Trying to find the original launch date for CNN.com [still searching] I came across this at-a-glance overview of the Turner Broadcasting Systems media empire. Quite impressive.

Ignore the War Day 11 and 12
That was a short vacation; After less than 24 hours @ this place we were heading back home, children sick again, no point being in the pool with diarrhea-infected kids... Anyways, I'm thinking about lifting the media-embrago when we pass the two-week marker on thursday. I'm starting to feel left out, not with regards to the Gulf-thing (which I still couldn't care less about until something important happens) but I'm starting to miss some danish news. I've now beaten my personal record for being without media. It's a weird experience. Sometimes it feels a bit like an awkward silence in a conversation; An urge to turn on the radio or TV just to fill out the gap. But those gaps may actually be where the good ideas start creeping in to the conscious part of the mind. The old cliché If it weren't for massmedia, people would start to think way to much has some truth to it after all.

If you google for "Ignore the War", the number one hit is a fine piece of text about 9.11 by my hero R U Sirius. He was one of the driving forces behind the legendary Mondo 2000 cyberculture magazine. Wired Magazine came later and was the watered-down sissy version of Mondo, and here Arthur Kroker, another toughguy from the good ol' M2K days writes about Mondo 2000 versus Wired.

Ignore the War Day 8, 9 and 10 Ahahahaha, this is getting easier and easier I thought yesterday. As far as I'm conserned the War hardly exists. But then last night I had a dream about the Gulf War; Lots of US soliders were standing behind a wire fence, and one of them was shouting about how he couldn't wait to get into battle. So I guess dreams are tougher to include in a media boycot than TV... Other than that, I've had a lot of extra time to play with my kids now that I don't watch TV anymore. And I don't think they care whether I'm fully updated on the battles in Iraq anyway. Vacation starts tomorrow, so it'll be even easier to Ignore the War. So I'm trusting the rest of you out there to follow every little war-related non-event closely while I'm gone. Have fun!

Ignore the War Day 7
A little bit of news leaked into my war-free zone today; Saw half a headline on BBC.co.uk, didn't realize in time that the frontpage was changed to accomodate maximum amout of War-stories. But other than that, I wouldn't be able to answer any questions on a multiple choice Iraq-war quiz. In other words; One fine spring week without the war.

Hvis man skal pege på én bog med udpræget kult-potentiale må det da være den her;
I Fremtidens Kommune fortæller Peter Brixtofte om udviklingen i Farum og viser, hvordan det offentlige kan lære af private virksomheder ved at indføre valgfrihed og konkurrence som en naturlig del af kommunens drift.

Ignore the War Day 6
As you may have noticed my massmedia-abstinence has given me more time to post stuff on this page. Not sure if that is a good thing, but it is now obvious to me that ignoring the War clears the mind up quite a bit. You should try it, maybe just for one day (or half a day). Tomorrow it's been a week with the Net (minus all newsrelated sites) as my only medium. Well, if I can do it for one week, maybe I can do it for two weeks...?

Swedish Johan Soderberg is a genius, he did the famous duet with Bush and Blair. The best one he did is the last clip on this page, Adolf singing "Born to be alive" is priceless, strangely funny and disturbing at the same time.

Ignore the War Day 5
Another great day on the no-war front. People are starting to hint that I'm not missing much by ignoring the War. However, I have told a few select people; Please give me a hint if you see saddam's dead body on CNN. So far I have not heard anything to that effect.

Part of Michael Moore's acceptance speech at the Oscars yesterday;
We live in the time where we have fictitious election results that elects a fictitious president. We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons. Whether it's the fictition of duct tape or fictition of orange alerts we are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you, Mr. Bush, shame on you. And any time you got the Pope and the Dixie Chicks against you, your time is up.

Ignore the War Day 3 & 4
It's getting easier and easier to be completely cut off from mass media. It's like a cloud lifting from my mind. Never knew that blissfull ignorance could feel so good. I spotted "Søndagsavisen" in the heap of (junk)mail on saturday, but managed to throw it away without looking at the frontpage. It's been a great, sunny weekend, even without any war entertainment. I shall continue to Ignore the War.

En søgning på den værste floskel/kliché nogensinde indenfor personalepleje; medarbejdere er vores vigtigste resource giver (udover en masse hits) en reklame for ingen mindre end Martin Thorborg's foredrag "Smid personalehåndbogen i skraldespanden" hvilket leder tanken hen på gårsdagens fine og 100% krigs-fri DR2 teamlørdag om erhvervskurser mv (Jeg burde sætte flere kommaer oh well for sent nu). Ser unægtelig ud som Thorborg og Co. opnår bedre resultater ved brug af sund fornuft, end de virksomheder der har hang til 20.000 kr./dag erhvervspsykologer, bygge-hængebro-i-ødemarken-kurser og dumsmarte mission statements.

Jeg glæder mig vildt meget til at læse denne spændende artikel om The Rise and Fall of Dagen - En avis til folk der kan læse – fra folk der ikke kan regne.
[Update. En rigtig, rigtig god og velskrevet artikel. Og her gik vi og troede at dot-com æraen sluttede i 2000, men i virkeligheden sørgede old-economy død-træs virksomheden Dagen for at de glade dage fortsatte helt frem til nutiden, godt gået]

Ignore the War Day 2
Great day, busy busy at work. Managed to talk nonstop on the way to Billund Downtown so I couldn't hear what they were saying on the radio. No one spoke about the war during work hours, no newpapers in my path, cancelled my Wired News and Computerworld newsletters so no war info will leak into my world from those sources. Turned on the TV at 7PM so my son could watch Disney Sjov, but it was delayed by war news. Turned it off again. It's now 22:17 and I have absolutely no clue on what's going on in Iraq. It feels pretty good. Why am I doing it? No deep reasons, just a little experiment.

Helge Sander siger selv at Pervasive Computing nu hedder "IT i alt". Andenpladsen i den stuure konkurrence blev "Allestedsnærværende IT". Vi holder vejret og håber at sprogpolitiet slår hårdt ned på folk der fremover siger P-ordet.

First day without the war is over. It went pretty well. Couldn't avoid overhearing someone talking about Tomahawk missiles in the morning. Assuming the rockets have been flying. I cannot go to any online news sites, and most of the major portals have news on the frontpage, so I'm pretty much restricted to using Google and a few other sites. No big deal. I have informed my colleagues that I'm trying to ignore the war, so I haven't heard anything from them about the current events. Needless to say TV will pretty much be off limits for a while. Also no big deal. All in all, a very good day without the war.

Great interview with my hero Tom Lehrer. A great quote;
I'm not tempted to write a song about George W.Bush. I couldn't figure out what sort of song I would write. That's the problem: I don't want to satirise George Bush and his puppeteers, I want to vaporise them.

Så er min medieboykot af Golfkrigen i fuld effekt. Mit mål er at vide så lidt som muligt om hvad der foregår i Irak. Det kan umiddelbart synes at være en tåbelig stikken-hovedet-i-sandet strategi, men jeg gider simpelthen ikke at sidde og følge hvert missil ned i Bag-dad og blogge om hvor slemt det hele er og blah blah blah. Jeg så etteren i '91 og toeren plejer at være dårligere, desuden gætter jeg på at krigen fortsætter uforandret uden min daglige deltagelse. Jeg overlader det trygt til det øvrige blogger-korps at artikulere magtesløshed på 101 smarte og velformulerede måder i de kommende dage/uger/måneder, og rigtig god fornøjelse med dét.

Take a look at the brand new LEGO.com. Very smooth, good usability and a good structure related to LEGO Companys new portal strategy (where all LEGO products are linked to four "Portals"; Explore, Make & Create, Stories & Action and Next). Good job by Mr. Sennov and Co. I really like the way the scrollbar is autoscrolling when you enter the product section.

Professor Marvin Minsky from MIT is not only one of the smartest people alive, he also has a great sense of humour. I remember him standing in the back of the room at various Medialab events, in his classic khaki west with many many pockets, dryly throwing out sarcastic to-the-point comments on what was happening. He once remarked that he encounters aproximately one intelligent person online per year and I suspect that he finds 99.9% of what's going on in the world to be to dumb to even comment on. And speaking of Marvin, Steven Johnson reports from this years TED conference;
On a lighter note, Marvin Minsky walked through a couple of half-serious ideas for combating the population explosion -- ideas that he seemed a little surprised that no one was yet exploring. My favorite: make people smaller! If we're going to be able to genetically engineer ourselves, maybe we should work on shrinking ourselves down so the planet can fit more of us. As Minsky pointed out, a 6-inch person is a thousand times smaller, volume-wise, than a normal-sized one. Of course, he didn't get into the crucial corollary problem we'd have to solve if we pulled this off -- namely, Giant Killer Squirrels -- but I'm sure with time we could solve that one too.

[Just had a thought; Would also be really handy when we're moving into serious deep-space exploration. Send a big team of microdudes in a spaceship the size of a vacuum cleaner...]

Many people (including me) confuse the terms tactics and strategy. On this page there is a decent definition;
Strategy is a term that comes from the Greek strategia, meaning "generalship." In the military, strategy often refers to maneuvering troops into position before the enemy is actually engaged. In this sense, strategy refers to the deployment of troops. Once the enemy has been engaged, attention shifts to tactics. Here, the employment of troops is central. Substitute "resources" for troops and the transfer of the concept to the business world begins to take form.

I believe my old pal Dandi was involved in this fun website; Ikonman.com. Furthermore, I believe my other old pal Martin Lindstrøm has written a new book about Tweens and branding. Big article in Berlingeren about the book, and some harsh response from a researcher, a teacher and a parent.

It's funny, cause it's true; The Wireless Future.
Let me tell you how it will go:
Apple gets tired of releasing new, faster wireless hardware (AirPort, AirPort Extreme, AirPort Insane, AirPort Illegal). So they release one box, software upgradeable to use whatever new protocols and frequencies become available. As consumers clamor for more bandwidth the FCC opens up more spectrum, making the adjustable boxes more valuable.

Ham der Michael Jackson er vist ikke helt rask, men det er da en god overskrift; Jackson ville dræbe Spielberg. Og så er hende der Alanis øøøh jeg mener Avril begyndt at gå mig på nerverne. Denne artikel fra Rolling Stone mere end antyder at den canadiske ungmø ikke taler helt sandt når hun siger at hun har skrevet hele sit succes-album selv. Og så er hun møgkedelig at høre på. Ja hun er så.

A little antidote to the current knee-jerk, fast food opinon that "Bush is just as bad as Saddam" from a much unexpected direction; John Perry Barlow writes in this great piece;
I believe that Dick Cheney has thought all these considerations through in vastly greater detail than I'm providing here and has reached these following conclusions: first, that it is in the best interests of humanity that the United States impose a fearful peace upon the world and, second, that the best way to begin that epoch would be to establish dominion over the Middle East through the American Protectorate of Iraq. In other words, it's not about oil,it's about power and peace.

To make it perfectly clear; I'm no fan of George W or war on Iraq, but a little perspective never hurts. So go read. Since this may only have a very limited effect...
