Brewed Fresh Daily » Blog Archive » goes off the air: "Tim Russo pulls the plug on his blog..."

It is naive of anyone in the blogging community, especially political bloggers, to think that the smear tactics that are the defining characteristic of modern American politics would not eventually be directed at the most passionate and effective voices in the blogoshpere. But what has happened to Tim Russo is also a testament to the realization among those in the political establishment, and those in MSM, that blogs have changed the rules of the game. The ugliness will continue, to be sure, but real Democracy has always been a street fight.

Seed: Why We Haven't Met Any Aliens

Seed: Why We Haven't Met Any Aliens: "[A]liens don't blow themselves up; they just get addicted to computer games. They forget to send radio signals or colonize space because they're too busy with runaway consumerism and virtual-reality narcissism. They don't need Sentinels to enslave them in a Matrix; they do it to themselves, just as we are doing today."

Geoffrey Miller's article in the current issue of Seed is one of the most interesting (if bleak) articles I've read in long time. Thought-provoking stuff.
