This American Life:  Blame It on Art

The darker side of the art world: petty jealousies, competitiveness, failure. And also what’s so great about art.

Companies that produce security software may soon be ignoring certain spyware, and potentially even infecting their customers through auto updates, under orders from US government agencies.

In the case decided earlier this month by the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals, federal agents used spyware with a keystroke logger — call it fedware — to record the typing of a suspected Ecstasy manufacturer who used encryption to thwart the police.

A CNET News.com survey of 13 leading antispyware vendors found that not one company acknowledged cooperating unofficially with government agencies. Some, however, indicated that they would not alert customers to the presence of fedware if they were ordered by a court to remain quiet."

Recommendation

"Almost claustrophobic in its intensity, Tsypkin’s recreation of the frustration, and even paranoia, of Dostoevsky during one summer in Baden-Baden, in which he attempts to gamble his way out of debt, is a masterpiece, newly published twenty years after its author’s death. With sensitivity and a feeling for suffering which may have come from similar frustration, Tsypkin reveals Dostoevsky’s inner life, showing us a sensitive but driven man who is also insecure, rude, and arrogant, a man who dominates his wife, a man who suffers from the aftereffects of his imprisonment and his epilepsy, a man virulently anti-Jewish and anti-German and in the grip of compulsive gambling–and a man with whom every reader will ultimately feel empathy, if not complete sympathy.

The story line is deceptively simple. An unidentified narrator, a great admirer of Dostoevsky, is traveling by train to various sites associated with Dostoevsky. As he travels, he reads a Dostoevsky novel, musing about characters in Dostoevsky’s novels and events in his life, his honeymoon and marriage, his remarkably supportive second wife, and his associations or wished-for associations with other Russian authors, such as Turgenev. The narrator’s additional musings on the forces which eventually impel some later authors, like Solzhenitsyn, to seek exile, while other authors remain behind, bring Russian literary history up to date, expanding the novel’s scope beyond that of Dostoevsky and his contemporaries and giving some historical context to Tsypkin’s own writing.

Contributing to the dark and intense moodiness of the novel is its style. Single sentences, full of unique images but sometimes two pages long, drive the narrative and the reader along, with the insistence of the train ride which opens the novel. Because each of these sentences is often a single, extended paragraph, there are almost no visual breaks to provide respite from solid type, which completely fills each page and compels the reader to read every word. The writing is so strong, so energetic, and so fresh, however, that most readers will find themselves speeding to keep up with the narrative, the grayness of the text disappearing as Tsypkin’s lively images emerge and his characters come to life. This is a challenging and utterly fascinating novel, a startling new work which has earned a place in Russian literary history." Mary Whipple (Amazon)

Eh…

http://www.thepriceofliberty.org/may.htm

Call your friends in Portland… Intelligence states there’s a high probability of an attack happening there between the 8/1 and 9/22 of this year; Operation Noble Resolve, an enormous joint Homeland Security-Military exercise, will conclude with a hypothetical detonation of a 10 kiloton nuclear weapon.  Similar to the massive-in-scale exercises that happened on 911 simulating planes hitting skyscrapers and the Pentagon, or the exercises that took place on 7/7 in London (same day of attack) involving the exact tube stops and buses that were hit, this is something to be worried about.  Keep this fact in mind:  Prompted by worried constituents, Peter DeFazio, a House Congressman representing the 4th district in Oregon who sits on the Homeland Security committee, recently requested H.S. documents pertaining to this exercise and directive and was denied for unspecified reasons by the White House.  His closing words:   "Maybe the people who think there’s a conspiracy out there are right."  (7/20/07)  
 
Everyone involved in the channels is trying to get the word out as this, at this point, is the only method of prevention… get your Portland friends talking about it!
 
My appologies for this dismal transmission!
