The Danger Down the Road

Sat, 10 Aug 2013 12:17:06 +0000

The current controversy over NSA oversight of, well, everything, seems a bit shortsighted. What worries me is not that the government is monitoring everything everyone is writing or saying electronically (still technologically impossible, given available resources) or that they are filtering everything looking for keywords or “patterns” (which they ARE doing), but rather that in […]

Global Neural Network Online Now

Sat, 25 Feb 2012 18:15:39 +0000

Last night we attended a lecture at MIT which once again reminded us why we keep returning to Cambridge after 40 years despite the weather. The event featured Wadah Khanfar, until recently head of the Al Jazeera network, and a panel composed of Ethan Zuckerman, director of MIT’s Center for Civic Media, Mohamed Nanabhay, head […]

Chiqui Gone But Not Forgotten

Sun, 08 Jan 2012 01:21:23 +0000

Chiqui FeldmanA Prince Among Pussies, a King Among Cats According to several of the world’s great religions, and backed by abundant empirical data, life as we know it consists largely of pain and suffering, salted with moments of enlightened inspiration and temporary alleviation of the burdens we all carry. Consequently, most of life’s most essential […]

Once Upon a Time in China

Tue, 20 Sep 2011 12:37:43 +0000

BEIJING — In a bizarre move, China’s television censors have issued new guidelines that all but ban TV dramas featuring time travel. In a statement (available here in Chinese) dated March 31, the State Administration for Radio, Film & Television said that TV dramas that involve characters traveling back in time “lack positive thoughts and meaning.” The […]

London Burning

Fri, 12 Aug 2011 07:26:46 +0000

LONDON — The rioting and looting that convulsed poorer sections of London over the weekend spread Monday to at least eight new districts in the metropolitan area and broke out for the first time in Britain’s second-largest city, Birmingham, in what was developing into the worst outbreak of social unrest in Britain in 25 years. […]

Riot Redux

Tue, 09 Aug 2011 07:53:48 +0000

RICHARD SENNETT and SASKIA SASSEN from the New York Times say it much better than I did:  America is in many ways different from Britain, but the two countries today are alike in their extremes of inequality, and in the desire of many politicians to solve economic and social ills by reducing the power of […]

Authentic Ecuadorian Viche

Sun, 07 Aug 2011 21:54:11 +0000

This is the true, original recipe for shrimp “Viche”, a superlative seafood soup found only in the Ecuadorian province of Manabi, on the Pacific coast of South America. Although this version uses fresh shrimp, it is also made with crab, fish and mixed seafood. The ingredients are all easily obtainable in most supermarkets, except for […]

Manta Diary 3: Why are we here?

Wed, 02 Feb 2011 00:28:29 +0000

Ah, Manta. A jewel by the sea, combining (almost) all that I love about modern South America: an alternative reality to the Northern half of the continent, retaining that unique American robust and irreverent forward motion yet somehow sedate, private, moving at its own rate and rhythm, and forever painted in the icy pastels of […]

The Rise, Fall and Resurrection of the Queen of the Highway

Fri, 28 Jan 2011 02:06:41 +0000

Although not a big country, Ecuador features sizable sections of the three main ecosystems found in South America: the dry coastal plain, the towering Andes mountains, and the vast Amazon jungle.  The roads connecting these environments are among the most spectacular and challenging in the world. Often amazing feats of engineering featuring stunning views and […]
