Davos in full swing started yesterday with disagreement between EU countries on how to save the euro. Swiss franc's too high. While in Switzerland they pay money so that franc that it does not go up too high in value, in Serbia they pay for the dinar to stay afloat. Yes, none else is buying dinar as a currency to ensure safe bets later. :-)
@Davos today there is an interesting talk about New Cyber World Order and bio-cyber terrorism (idealabs) - no webcast. ISOC's CEO is on the panel of Global Network Transformations - but no webcast either!
It is mostly a closed meeting and some pay up to 20K to attend.
Mindfullness with Jon Kibat-Zinn is on the program, topics like "What is ethical leadership" (not this type of behviour) -ew lines of code can give so much data away Music Evolution.
I finally managed to remember the name of the theatre where I acted for one year. It's Shared Experience theatre in Soho behind Carnaby Street.
I first somehow learnt about yoga lessons from Julie Friedberg upstairs at the red brick laundry Soho building and then having dared to open the door on the floor bellow, I joined the young actors group back in 1992-1993.
We improvised and put together one play at the end of the year and performed it at the cockpit theatre? I still have the VHS recording somewhere... Where? I played the character of Liz - who ran away from home when she was 16 to join her "motorcyclist" boyfriend. The play was about fears that teenagers go through, e.g. parents moving cities, kids feeling lonely and sad about leaving their friends behind, the boogie man and other phobias... anything you wished or feared from could have been in that play.
An excellent analysis of why Internet filtering is a no. ISOC Belgrade chapter supported Share Defense response.
Serbian government widthdrew its proposal to order ISPs to filter content, as part of the new law to regulate online gambling websites.
Without any due discussions and debate, the government proposed a legislation which would have ordered ISPs to filter access to any gambling websites and therefore inspect and censor the internet traffic. It would have had detrimental repercussions for users' digital liberties, preventing the free flow of information, and for internet intermediaries such as ISPs. Ultimately it would open doors for censorship of all internet content.
