Tim O'Reilly's The Fuss About Gmail and Privacy: Nine Reasons Why It's Bogus is the perfect place to start buying clues about Google and Gmail (by the way my Cel provider here in Venezuela used the term Gmail for a failed "email to SMS" service, I wonder if they have some rights over the name). The whole article by Tim is excellent and the responses are not. His best line: "Scary? Maybe. But the future is always scary to those who cling to the past." Well put.

What is happening with Google is the same thing that is happening with Apple and with any company that touches what the money minions at Micro$ucks consider their property. Suddenly everybody starts making a ruckus about some stupid detail, imaginary or not. I think it is naive to believe this is all a coincidence, this are orchestrated attacks pay for by the devil himself. Talking about the Devil. Google rule Number 1 is "Don't be evil" they have signs all over their campus and they say it very early in the interview process... Could that be the reason they are hated?

The Recording Industry Soldiers On Against Illegal Downloading. Clamping down on innovation has been the entertainment industry's reaction to new distribution technologies since Thomas Edison. By Verlyn Klinkenborg. [New York Times: Opinion]

I said it before but it's worth repeating. The main reason file sharing is used is because it is the most efficient form of distribution. Look at how well exclusive tracks are doing in the iTunes Music Store. You don't need an album to let people hear something of yours and people enjoy that first hand fast access. And, no, that doesn't mean the album is dead or will die, you moron!

Too Close for Comfort. The social forces that push misfit boys over the edge are still alive in isolated communities where most school shootings occur. By Katherine S. Newman.

We need to create alternatives to an adolescent culture that prizes a boy's prowess at sports over his artistic, academic, "nerdy" accomplishments so that the oddballs can find a social niche more easily.

[New York Times: Opinion]

Look out your Window. The resolution is amazing...

I'm watching the sun come up. For the third night in a row... Of this, I'll never get tired...

I need someone to help me sleep

If you had checked the time of my first posts of the day in the last few days, you would've noticed that this is the third night in a row that I am awake in the middle of the night. It is very strange and I don't think it has happened to me before. I sometimes spend a night awake, normally I am unable to fall asleep and simply start doing things at night. But this is different. I sleep soundly for about 4 hours and then I am awake, not nervous, but with lots of energy and a desire to do stuff and party, with all the creative juices flowing. I write, play the guitar all night and do tons of things during the night. The day after I feel allright until late in the afternoon (Though, I am very tired and yawning pretty much the whole day), but I stay awake with little effort until 11 or so (thinking that way I'll sleep all night). And the cycle repeats itself. Lather, Rinse, Repeat...

The big difference with other sleepless nights of mine is how much I am enjoying it. The silence, the chance to think and do stuff that takes time and concentration, how fast the internet is, when I am pretty much the only person in Venezuela using the international channel. It is all very nice. The only small problem is to avoid making noises and the lack of company (it does get lonely out here!). Having said that, I am conscious that I need to sleep more and that by the end of the day I'm not feeling well and I start to get a little crazy (some would say I was crazy to start with, but you know what I mean). There is a lot of positive change in my life and a lot of good energy flowing... I need to get some sleep, I just may not want to miss this moment...

At the end, I think this is not a big deal, I am just, paradoxically, enjoying my solitude, though I would love some company...
