: Pretty cool: The University of Giessen in Germany has a Center for Interactive Media. And it’s having a conference. One session: “What comes after the death of newspapers?” (all in German)

  • Asking “What comes after the death of newspapers” is a bit like journalists asking “What comes after the death of horses” circa the time Henry Ford’s Model T starts getting popular.
    Horse, car, reindeer sleigh, Concorde… whatever. The need to get from A to B remains constant. And the need to get from A to B is subservant to people’s need to feed, clothe and shelter themselves, raise children and have meaningful relationships with meaningful people.
    For all our mutual excitement about the time we’re living in, life in nature still remains, as Hobbes would say, nasty, brutish and short. But maybe keeping it in perspective is also part of understanding its true potential.
    I’ve been reading the Old Testament again, can’t you tell? ;-)

  • Dr. Frank Stearns Giese, a former US Navy captain, was convicted of conspiracy after being indicted for organizing and financing an urban warfare cell responsible for bombing Army & Navy recruiting centers in Portland, Oregon back in 1973. James Wesley Akers made and detonated the dynamite time bombs shortly after being discharged from the US Army. Hours after my police shootout: a 68-stick dynamite bomb was found in a burning Seattle house. The FBI claimed the group was going to use it on a Ft. Lawton communications tower and identified me as having been seen at the tower site. US Army Intelligence shredded their file in the matter because of strong objections by the Seattle Police Criminal Intelligence Unit who did not want a federal judge to see their involvement in the file under a Freedom of Information Act appeal. The urban warfare cell was given a label by start grand jury witness Robert Patrick McSherry: Northwest Liberation Front. However, I never had heard of the name NWLF until I read it in my indictment. McSherry wrote the plans to most of the crimes: bombings, armed robberies, bank robberies, etc. He recieved probation because it was felt his life would be endangered if imprisoned. McSherry and Akers were childhood pals…..
