Les geeks

Un « geek » est un amoureux de la matière informatique, c'est un technophile et un bidouilleur. Il a son nid dans l’arbre numérique et adore le nouveau matériel. C’est instinctif. Invité: Pierre Ouziel, geek.

Eurovision...

1977... Date de la dernière victoire de la France au concours Eurovision. Le 20 mai 2006, à Athènes, Michel Drucker et Claudi Siar, chargés de commenter la finale du concours européen de la chanson sur France 3, semblent croire à la candidature française. A minima, ils font leur travail, en faisant semblant d’y croire... Logique chauvine, protectionnisme culturel, caressage d’audience dans le sens du poil. Dans une envolée d’enthousiasme ardent, Claudi Siar se laisse même aller à espérer que Virginie Pouchain, l’heureuse élue chargée de représenter la France, finira dans les cinq premiers, «pour clouer le bec aux détracteurs de Corneille et de Pascal Sevran». La candidate française a en effet été repérée par l’animateur de feue "La chance aux chansons", puis élue par les téléspectateurs de France 3 parmi une sélection d’une vingtaine d’autres candidats, et elle interprète une chanson écrite par Corneille.

Who Killed The Electric Car?

Who Killed The Electric Car? It was among the fastest, most efficient production cars ever built. It ran on electricity, produced no emissions and catapulted American technology to the forefront of the automotive industry. The lucky few who drove it never wanted to give it up. So why did General Motors crush its fleet of EV1 electric vehicles in the Arizona desert?

Big Ben discovers Swiss roots

Roethlisberger, on a weeklong trip to discover his family's roots in Switzerland, tried his hand at hornussen -- a Swiss sport somewhere between golf and baseball -- listened to accordion and Alphorn-driven folk music, tasted the local cheese, and met family members still living near his family's former farm.

Credibility issues

A long-running effort by the Bush administration to send home many of the terror suspects held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, has been stymied in part because of concern among United States officials that the prisoners may not be treated humanely by their own governments, officials said. -The New York Times

What a sad, sorry joke. Look how hollow America's once potent moral leadership on human rights has become. The US won't release Saudi and Yemeni detainees to their home countries because of the fear that they will face "beatings, whippings and sleep deprivation" in prisons at home. Ha! That will be an instant punchline tonight at diner tables from Omaha to Tehran.

For three and a half years those practices and worse (sexual humiliation, waterboarding, extended exposure to stress positions) have been standard operating procedure not only at Guantanamo, but also in Kabul and Baghdad. Although I sympathize with the  State Department's push for human rights prison monitoring in countries to which we release prisoners, US policy has once again utterly disintegrated US credibility in diplomatic negotiations. Worse, it raises questions about the true intent of the shut down of the DOD transfer of prisoners out of Gitmo.
