The Chomster on Nation States

“…the nation-state system has been one of the must brutal and destructive creations of Europe and its offshoots, imposed by force on much of the rest of the world, with horrendous consequences for centuries in Europe, and elsewhere until the present.” See the full ting ‘ere.

This is from a debate in which the great man has honoured Noah Cohen by taking it “seriously enough” to respond.

Pictures; One thousand words.

What does this picture say?

a cool inbox
a) Lotus Notes is cool. Look at this email app interface. It is cool. AND it’s

in the ever so slightly antiquated version 6.


b) File-Maker Pro apps can REALLY suck. S U C K. We just got one at work. Could be sloppy programming; I don’t know for sure, but when you can’t tab between fields (because the ‘tab’ key closes a window or something ludicrous) Notes/Domino quirks seem like award winning advances in GUI design.


c)Noam Chomsky emailed me! Check out the ‘Who’ column. Well, HE didn’t email me, one of his assistants did. But hey – it puts a smile on my dial!

Noam Chomsky’s speaking itinerary

I have decided to start a speaking itinerary of the great professor as I couldn’t find one anywhere on-line. I hope that it’s useful and please let me know of any appearances (or if there’s a list already out there on the net).

And Noam Chomsky has a weblog called “Turning the Tide”

Chomsky Speaking Itinerary

I couldn’t find a list of Noam Chomsky’s engagements anywhere. Rather that sit back in my usual fog of apathy I thought that I’d start one myself. This is the unofficial, incomplete speaking itinerary of Noam Chomsky.

Please, if you know of a time/venue please let me know (if possible please send a web link too, or any other information). Better yet, if you know of a page that already does this, and that is kept up-to-date, please let me know and I don’t have to bother!

(Please also let me know if Noam is talking in London, as it seems that I’ve missed him.)

There’re also details here about how to get his schedule.

Date Where Title Other
22 May 2004 Liverpool, UK Part of the WOW Fesitval
22 May 2004 Manchester, UK University of Manchester
19 May 2004 London Simple Truths, Hard Choices: Some Thoughts on Terror, Justice and Self-defense Free

Update: I was asked by Prof Chomsky’s staff to not do this. The dude abides.
