Are you interested? I'm NOT!

I received this text below by email. Before this kind of fraud being a crime, this is an offense! An offense to everybody's intelligence! Under something that can look "innocent" - nobody is asking you to send money, your bank account or your credit card number; they ONLY ask you to CONFIRM your full name, phone, fax, mobile, company name, home address, profession, age and marital status. Harmless information, one nay think, as your friends also know that... But they are your friends and will not try to harm you.

Here is the email:

They know how to do it...

Totally in line with the United States's war against terror, the anti-bomb irish squad have found their way using a interesting technique - reliance. We've learned they believe that if they ask, gently, terrorists not to do bad things like planting a bomb inside a waste bin, they will not...

Although the disbelieve of lots of people, method has proofed as an efficient method...

What Now?

We've learned that neo-liberal doutrine and free market haven't saved the world from poverty as they have promissed. Even worse, have thrown it away in a miserable state - ecologically and economicaly speaking.

From the ecological point of view, the earth's resources are finite and cannot be streched to accomodate the unlimited craves of an exponentially growing human population. Human progress should not transgress the limits imposed by nature. Unfortunately, since the Industrial Revolution this insight is lost, although neo-liberals still think that a global free market in conjunction with progress and technological development will bring a world of no shortage on necessites of life.

We are having a clear example of the opposite of that, with the geopolitical conflicts for the wealth of the earth. The war in the Gulf and in Iraq are not merely a war on terror, or in the name of the democracy, as USA want the world to believe. It's far more complicated and less noble.

Barack Obama emerges as a hope; a hope on a fairer world, where the USA interestingness should now move towards the world's sake. If they want to think globally as they claim, they have to understand once for all that the world is not made of western values only. And western values do not mean USA advantage over other countries.

It's a hard lesson to learn, Obama, but somehow, a lot of people are betting on you.

a wonderful free world

Free software has more and more triggered a vast number of people. There are some characteristics that make the phenomenon particularly attractive. For instance, they have an extensive impact on the economy and society, as they are free and they offer an alternative to oligopolies (microsoft, Apple, IBM). When free softwares are also open source softwares, they offer developers an unprecedented access to data. The community of open source software developers frequently engage in a dialog on its functioning. Open source software are a real demonstration of the power of collaboration, and I don't think they could be done any other way. They could have chosen to be commercial, and they would have sold five copies or so...

Give it a try! Go Linux - any flavor! Go OppenOffice for your office softwares, go Firefox for browser and email, go WInamp for music and movie player, go to the Internet and search for free software. Youĺl be surprise how many offers you can find.

The next challenge now is to bring the propose the open source software model to other areas than software, like goods and entertainment, and this would be a wonderful free world.

Freedom, everybody...
