I’ve been one to go on rants about the negative effects of over competition (and will walk away because of it). Motivation driven by a sense of keen competition may be productive in the near term, but competiiton eventually becomes nemesis to real friendship and altruistic cooperation for the greater good.

It truly does feel like a unique shifting time in history, when the forces of light, compassion and positive energy need to be considered in each one of our communications. It is important to be forgiving to others and ourselves. None of us are perfect and we ALL make mistakes.

very grateful, jan

media rant September 11, 2006

Yesterday, in the familiar capacity of a founding board member of kcinymedia.org (2002), I acted as independent media for a 9-11 focused protest at Mill Creek Park. In this indymedia reporter’s role, I took dozens of photographs and an hour’s worth of videotape of the 9-11 protest with the specific purpose of sharing a photo album from that protest (and video soon).

Today, on this fifth anniversary, I will shed all other hats and proudly wear the personal hat of concerned citizen of the United States. Foremost, as a U.S. citizen today, I will be holding a Stop the 9-11 Cover-Up sign, whether it be solo or with a few we can drum up. Let history show that this anniversary met with at least a few citizens who made sincere, valiant attempts at independent public outreach in this US media aided complicity cover-up. Just as they paint America as solidly pro-war, the portayal of blind nationalistist patriotism surrounding 9-11 demands that we contribute to the corporate news media rendering itself obsolete

news feature, design inspiration September 10, 2006

Feature article about Jim Hoffman recent speaking events in Kansas City “Visiting Researcher Questions Government Claims” (available in pdf or jpg file).

Design inspiration can be gleaned from a variety of sources. About two weeks ago, I needed to quickly create a Science Applied color flyer and logo. That evening, John Fogerty played at Starlight Theatre. The concert’s light show was incredible. While closely studying Fogerty’s colorful light show, I chose the colors for the Science Applied flyer and logo. John Fogerty sang the beautiful song “de ja vu”, which elicited a stream of tears. Listening to Cindy’s voice has always produced this exact same response in me. What difficult times we live in.

Have just published photos from theĀ “Applied Science to The WTC Collapses” event.

Many science and engineering types attended (note pens in dress shirts pockets). One audience member described Jim as “articulate, eloquent and succinct” who had “the audience weighing his every word.”. Another described the audience as “paying rapt attention”. Though the photos don’t show most of the two audiences, there were also a significant amount of students in attendence. One family even drove in from Columbia with their two MU science students.
Jim’s presentation directly changed a conservative, friend of mine’s defense of the official investigations.

Three brief videos of Jim Hoffman are available for viewing here. Forgive the video juggling, especially in the opening video. We arrived at the last possible milisecond so there was zero set up time.

Dos Mundos, the largest circulation hispanic newspaper in Kansas City has published a great feature article about the Science Applied event. Watch the Science Applied page for the scan tomorro
