Haven’t done this for a while so I need to dump core.

 + Question, Who is afraid of the big bad Google

 + Exercise 1: Class, please tell me what the difference is between these two articles? Hint – one is commentary written as commentary while the other is commentary masquerading as fact (a.k.a “a load of kak”).

1). For Kenyans, a risky way to ride

2). Horn of Africa may be the next terror front

Like Monyihan, quite rightly, says, “you are entitled to your own opinion but you are not entitled to your own facts”

 + Google WTF search

 + An oldie but goodie: Microserfs: Life for the serfs at a pre-google Microsoft

 + Lonnae O’Neal ParkerWhy I Gave Up On Hip-Hop from the Washington Post, Sunday October 15, 2006.

 + Free international calls for those of you who may have 10 digit North American numbers: Just dial 712 858 8883 wait for the dial tone then dial the international number you want to reach. (edit: this piece seems to have disappeared behind the Times’ paywall but the number still works).

 + A trio of articles on (maybe related?) subjects.

1). The great firewall of China
2). The Balkanization of the Internet (a subject that I have written about before 1 2)
3.) Microsoft Firefox

 + Primers 101

1). Good Blog Writing Style
