inter3sting article.

I think the Salon article raises some key points and opens the conversation
for more development rather than just being negative.

It certainly fits in line with our recent conversations about having some
kind of website or manifesto or doctrine to go along with actions. This can
create a common goal and objectives statement of any particular action to
encourage effective communications.

Personally, I think it is fine that "those kids" are at least using
political statements to hack sites with rather than just "yo mamma" all the
time. they are gonna do it anyway, right?  ... at least they now realize
saying something socially responsible is cooler than Ego bravado.  that is a
positive direction of change.
