the Disillusioned kid: Rundown

Monday, August 29, 2005


I'm back from my travels and now in need of a short holiday to recover. Between the late nights, alcohol and public transport it's something of a miracle I can still right coherently. I may or may not get around to writing a rant about the superfulity of First Class carriages on over-crowded and generally overpriced trains, but I'd like to go on record as saying they're bloomin' irritating.

Anyhoop. Some stuff has probably happened while I'm away, although I've not yet had a chance to catch up with - let alone reflect on - it. In lieu of the usual incisive analytical writing therefore, a few tit-bits about a few things.

Firstly, Sheshrugged (purveyor of delights here) points out that the Economist seems to want to get in on the act with the Uzbekistan blogging day of action (which incidentally now has the requisite numer of supporters to fulfil the pledge, although anybody else is still welcome to get involved) with this near-perfectly timed article advocating sanctions on the country. Not so sure about the last paragraph, but a good start anyway.

Elsewhere, this burst of common sense has now been reprinted on Z-Net. This marks the completion of something of an ambition for the author (sad as that may seem), so why not take the time to read and consider what the piece has to say? (And try to ignore the dodgy maths, which - honest to god - isn't mine, although I really should have picked up on it.)
