Recursion (Part 0)

Recursion 0 Picture by Dean Summers

I dreamed about you last night.

About a silence so loud I thought my ears would burst like a body under miles of water splitting apart from the pressure. Silence being such a heavy thing. My heart was beating painfully through my ears, yelling and reaching and falling short.

You were reaching out to my feet, I remember in detail their trembling. You wanted to touch them so badly that I could see the desire consuming you but you shook with fear, a curious deep fear as I hovered between a now we were rejecting-would always reject, and a then that we couldn’t possibly understand.

The wind, already so strong it turned my golden locks to whips and threatened to rip my skin from my bones, was picking up and you were crying, tears being whisked away forcefully from your pinkened cheeks, and I was numb…

For a dear dear friend.

The sun sets for another day,
Yet the smile lingers on,
Memories of the day just passed,
Imprint in my brain forever long.

You have a way with words,
Magical, mysterious and wonderful,
You make many people smile,
Sometimes you just play the fool.

Wit and care are abundant,
Humour Intwined with Intelligence,
I feel your words encircling me,
Ever day just makes sense.

Oh this poem doesnt do you justice,
For how your warmth comes through,
As I read the text on the screen I smile,
For it came directly from you.

Understanding the Historical Importance of the Bradley Manning Trial

In a welcome but belated piece by David Carr, the New York Times criticized the tremendous lack of transparency of the court martial proceedings in the case against Bradley Manning.

The secrecy, redactions and delays in release of information mean that the public does not have contemporaneous access to the proceedings, a fundamental component of a public trial. And given that Private Manning is confronting a life sentence, news media coverage and the public interest are one of the core protections provided to him by the First and Sixth Amendments.

I’m glad the New York Times has finally realized what journalists and advocates like Michael Ratner, Daniel Ellsberg, Glenn Greenwald, and myself have been saying since Manning’s indictment. I’m glad the Times woke up to the fact that if Manning were to be convicted of “aiding the enemy” simply because he provided information to Wikileaks…

Cryptome and Gibney’s ‘We Steal Secrets-The Story of WikiLeaks’

marthamitchelleffect

Email correspondence between Cryptome and the film maker Alex Gibney regarding possibility of participating in ‘We Steal Secrets-The Story of WikiLeaks’. The emails were first published by Cryptome 21st January 2013.


Jigsaw Productions is first showing its documentary “We Steal Secrets-The Story of WikiLeaks” by Alex Gibney at Sundance today at 5:15PM (Utah time).

Cryptome provided emailed material to Jigsaw over several months beginning in May 2011 but declined to appear on camera, and after reading about Jigsaw’s biased treatment of targets in previous documentaries, broke off relations at a final meeting with producer Alexis Bloom at Zuccotti Park in September 2011 which was taped in part by the Jigsaw videographer.

In the five months before then we met once with Alexis Bloom and then had email exchanges primarily with her and a few with Alex Gibney, head of Jigsaw from May 19, 2011 to December 20, 2012:
