Blogger gets blizanged in beta.

Dynamic serving, controlled access, MOTHERFUCKING LABELS Y'ALL, more site feed options, drag & drop layout changes (no more html/css!) spell check using Gmail format, and more.

Take the tour or start a new blog in beta to check stuff out. Dynamic pages make a huge difference to the overall experience. Especially with layout edits, which appear automatically as if by magic. Magic, I say!

I lowe you Google.

True Say

It seems we can only look at the Middle East and its inhabitants (the Israelis excepted) through one of two lenses: Either we completely ignore the cultural, economic and political differences (including the hugely unequal power relationship between the global hegemon and a collection of fragmented, post-colonial nation states) or we retreat into Orientalist cliches about the inscrutible Arab and/or Islamic soul.

The first view is essentially that of the Marine colonel in Full Metal Jacket who declares confidently that inside every Vietnamese (he used a different word) there is an American, trying to get out. This is also the Cheney administration's official view, expressed every time Shrub reads one of his canned lines about the universal appeal of democracy and freedom -- freedom, of course, being most emphatically not defined as freedom from foreign occupation or economic globalization or the onslaught of a Western-dominated media culture unconsciously bent on conquering the world.

Testing with Flock. So fresh and so clean. Post window kicks Blogger's ass...which isn't difficult but is still worthy of mention. Flickr pics availiable in a tap. Select text, right click and post away. Yeah, I like it a lot. Hope this shit works. Publish...
