I read Charles Dickens’s David Copperfield.  On my Sony PRS-505 Reader, thanks to Ricardo.  On my three-hour rides through the mountains between Sarajevo and Tuzla, thanks to the American University in Bosnia and Herzegovina.  Also in bed, when I unwind, before I’d fall asleep, in my room in Grbavica, without Internet, thanks to God, who […] more »

Do you ever have an extra day? or a day’s wage? A denarius, as in Roman days? A Sunday or twelve hours of sun spread out over a year? The Includer is a human-sized device, the product of a human-sized economy, the sum of working one day at a time. Jackton Arija was the spark […] more »

The Includer grows wings.  An idea can’t fly on a single wing or even two or three.  An idea soars when inspired from every angle.  Just as a gangster’s heart can’t shut out love from all directions.  Who among us can take credit for a miracle?  It’s the logic of the Glory of a greater […] more »

Imagine living on $1 a day and spending $1 an hour to chat with you! Fred Kayiwa: Hi Andrius I’m multitasking as I’m blogging this.  Listening to John McCain’s gracious concession and reading Kennedy Owino’s and Francis Opiyo Opiyo’s rejoicing from Kenya in Barack Obama’s victory, and preparing sample test problems for my algebra students here […] more »

The Includer stays alive, as an idea, thanks to last year’s Knight News Challenge. At the Las Vegas awards ceremony, I told one of the judges, maybe I got lucky? He assured me that I won because my idea was original. A billion people live within walking distance to the Internet, but there is no […] more »

The Includer is the voting machine for ones dreams. (There are no apostrophes on this Bosnian keyboard.) I am blogging thanks to last years Knight News Challenge.  November 1 is the last day to apply this year. What I really like about this contest is that everybody can see your entry.  Here is mine: Help […] more »

The Includer gives way to the Help Room. The more intensely we work offline, the more intensely we engage each other online. I share my proposal to the Knight News Challenge. The deadline is November 1. I ask for $180,000 for this three-year project. The Minciu Sodas laboratory includes an online chat room. (Our new […] more »

The Includer is a device for listening to a person’s deepest thoughts. This may take twelve years, which is how long I have known David Ellison-Bey. In July, his house was foreclosed. He then asked for my help to review his many bills. They reflect the American economy, which weighs on his shoulders. Please think […] more »

Ricardo submitted a brilliant idea for Google’s 10 to the 100th competition.  The idea is to get mobile phone manufacturers to add a USB Host Interface to fairly cheap GPRS mobile phones, so they can control peripherals, such as cheap PC Keyboards, flash drives, etc, and more expensive devices like printers, where the cost is […] more »

The Includer is a tool for a solitary thinker.  When we center our world on the solitary thinker, then we’ll all be one, in life and death, in our evergrowth – our choice to grow forever, to live forever. Let’s connect the scattered dots. David Ellison-Bey and I are still up.  The police are still […] more »
