I know it sounds like a lot. But, I guess it was
printed in small quantities and is rare nowdays.
I'd like to have one; but the price was a bit
out of my budget.
maybe the second statistic is about volume, not acreage?
Cory Doctorow's "I, Rowboat" future world AIs cutely used wikis in order
understand their meaning and sentience in their universe.
I bet you could write a wiki about Elvis in this manner.

Have you read Cory Doctorow's "Overclocked"
It contains 2 short stories, "I Robot" and "I, Rowboat" the second of
is the evolution of some AI and the life and career of a rowboat, whose
physical appearance or attraction quotient is unknown
It would certainly be interesting to have that boat painted by J Turner
immolating which is sort of what it did at the end when it went to heaven
hell or the great afterlife

. Iowa Primaries
Battle in the Corn Fields
By Klaus Brinkbšumer in Iowa
The United States is a country that likes to explain democracy to
other nations. It is also a country that starts wars to bring
democracy to the world. It allows the candidates for its highest
office, the presidency, to spend a year and a half campaigning,
leaving no stone unturned as it delves into their past. Its political
mood is gauged on a daily basis by anywhere from 10 to 20 opinion
polls... Dec 24,
I don't know it sounds pretty fabulous to me
In the meantime, the experiment with the word leader is interesting.
Another thing that the word Fuhrer connotes to a lot of Americans the
concept of genetic experimentation. Whenever you hear USians talk
genetic improvement in that era, it's always with a sense of disgust.
Every once in a while though you hear about USians donating eggs and
of either people with high IQs or perceived as attractive, such as
models. But the thought that goes behind that type of genetic
is often glossed over. Very ironic.
Altogether the subjects are touchy.
Watched a very interesting documentary about Darfur and this shows that
USians are still turning their heads away from slaughter while
trying to fix countries where there is more oil or otherwise that are
Humans are so confusing.
Indeed. Same is true for EUsians and the ROW.
I'm off to the art museum today.

. Cirque De Demain
http://www.cirquededemain.com I watched this yesterday. Winner (gold)
was a French-Canadian couple with an extremely sexy acrobatic dance
show. Mongol girls (China) got silver; and another Chinese show
(little boys and adults) bronze. There were several silver and bronze
medals for other contestants, in addition.
There was also a very unique (young) Ukrainian artist with a special
discipline (using a pole) which, they said, the Ukraine is world-
famous for. Forgot the term. Couldn't find it in the net, though,
Curiously, the website says it's closed for the holidays.
I assume this is the same event that we sometimes see at the olympics,
This sounds nice but I will have to try it again tomorrow
