relational politics - a politics in which neither self nor other, we nor them, take precedence, but in which relational process serves as the generative source of change. I am not speaking here of a mere fantasy, another grand but unworkable design hatched in the ivory tower. Rather, I believe that relational politics are already in evidence - not yet self-conscious, but struggling in multiple sites toward common intelligibility.

strangers when we meet by hanif kureishi (via gulfstream)

Can you hear me? No. No one can hear me.
Nobody knows I am here.
But I can hear them.

as an aside john glenn was on c-span the other day and mentioned during astronaut training in some languages the word for stranger and enemy is the same.

time out: He had never graduated from medical school, hadn't held a job in two decades, and was living off the savings he'd bilked from his parents, his in-laws, and his mistress. On the verge of being found out, he killed his wife, his two children, and his parents, then burned his house to the ground, rather than simply confessing the truth. also see empathy with the devil.

no such thing :) Transit delays due to subway attacks have become mundane. Even the sale of lower Manhattan to a movie studio barely qualifies as news. In such a world, monsters have a tough time staying relevant, as the older-than-humanity creature played by Robert John Burke essentially admits in the film's first line. "I'm, uh, not the monster I used to be," he says, looking like a version of Jean Cocteau's Beast that's been left in the sun a few centuries too long, and speaking into a tape recorder left behind by a camera crew he seems to have slain. btw an interview with hal hartley!

"The PC has really driven the industry over the last decade or so. But it is not the driver now. This is going to be a much different world, ... Networking and consumer electronics applications are driving the evolution of a new semiconductor industry."

hooray! more stuff i don't understand :) eXtremeTech's interconnect conundrum. not because it is easy, but because it is hard.

For example, since InfiniBand channel adapters have their own intelligence, they offload lots of communications processing from the operating system and CPU. The switched nature of InfiniBand delivers tons of scalability; it can support ever more numbers of simultaneous collision-free connections with virtually no increase in latency. Don't worry about adding new devices to your InfiniBand fabric, as you're not sharing any bandwidth. InfiniBand's many-to-many communications means that anything you add to the network, be it a CPU, fibre channel SAN, or a simple SCSI drive, can share its resources with any other node. Reliability is assured as data can take many paths across the fabric. And troubleshooting, upgrading, or replacing things like storage doesn't require shutting down servers since the former are separate from the CPU. Fault isolation and troubleshooting are easier in a switched environment since it's easier to isolate problems to a single connection.

also btw arstechnica linked to this overview last year. yup.

so with all the april fools craziness it was super hard finding stuff to link to :) cuz i was all distracted and stuff! but i persevered. i've kinda been into osnews lately even though i know nothing about programming or oses. like i like reading about them for no reason :) anyway i thought squeak and nova looked pretty cool! also btw slashdot posted all questions answered by donald knuth.
