Op-Ed Contributor: Get French or Die Trying. The lesson of the French riots is that while they originate in areas largely populated by immigrants of Islamic heritage, they have little to do with the wrath of a Muslim community. By OLIVIER ROY. [NYT > Opinion]
Will this shatter the superiority complex europeans have respect to the US? The bottom line is integration is hard and at some point you'll run into problems... Still, I wonder, how come only in France riots last night after night after night....

SGI: anatomy of a fall. Former Silicon Valley heavyweight SGI was delisted from the NYSE on Monday, an occasion that prompts a look back at the how the company fell so far in a decade.
By hannibal@arstechnica.com (Hannibal). [Ars Technica]
SGI has a very special place in my heart, it's the first company I made money of by shorting the stock. Where did they go wrong? There are many reasons, but the first is that they completely missed the Internet. They insisted in keeping the advantage in graphics and computer intensive, without realizing that cheap computers where getting really fast. They did not have an strategy for massification. Plus, they bought Cray, just before distributed computing proved how powerful and cheap supercomputing could be.
