New post on deviantArt: some egotistical number crunching, re: the Enigma version 4 release.

"...we went straight to the stadium, and there were 40,000 people in the stands, portraying the history of the North Korean Revolution with flip cards. On the playing field before them, about 60,000 people did wild, synchronized gymnastics routines. The 15 of us who made up the audience watched from a marble dais. We were the only spectators. Fifteen audience members for a 100,000-man extravaganza. That was our first day in Pyongyang."

I saw the video of this a few months ago. Imagine an entire two-hour Olympics opening ceremony being performed, live, for some dude in a beard and a jacket from an Internet magazine that nobody's ever heard of. It's a symbol of how completely disconnected from reality this country is.

I've been binging on DPRK-related media for the last few weeks, and everything I learn about the place is completely horrifying, and (therefore) fascinating.

You might enjoy reading "The Two Koreas" by Oberdorfer. It's a history of the country since the division. It was recommend to me by one of my students who is from Korea.

As it turns out, I've been praying for years and I didn't even know it.

(Make sure to read all the way to the end.)

Sadly, no. :( The plugin is Windows 7-only. But if someone out there makes an XP-compatible plugin, I'll be more than happy to support it.

Is there some way to solve this locally? Can't marginalized people organize
to provide food, shelter,clothing, education, and health care more efficiently?
Wouldn't efforts be better spent solving the problem than complaining about it?

Introduction

Michael Engard is a writer, web designer and political activist. Kaelri is his pseudonym. He is active in the areas of Internet technology, graphical user interface design, and digital rights as they apply to American and international society. In addition to his freelance writing on this website, he has also guest written for the software and lifestyle blog Lifehacker.

He is best known for Enigma, a suite for the open-source Windows applet platform Rainmeter. To date, Enigma has been downloaded over 2 million times, has received accolades from Lifehacker, Computer Bild and Windows Vista Magazine, and was selected as Rainmeter's first "featured suite" to be bundled with the program installer as a default option for users. He continues to serve as a project developer for Rainmeter.

He is currently the webmaster of Everfalls (formerly The Loréan Library), where, since 2002, he has participated in a series of multimedia roleplaying projects with challenging philosophical, political and literary themes. He has logged over 30 months as a project director, and is now assisting with the novel adaptation of the recently-completed White Rose campaign.

Born in Rochester, New York in 1989, Michael has attended Victoria College in the University of Toronto, and will soon join the University of Rochester to complete his degree in international relations.
