Israel and Hamas now engaged in texting war

grinding.be --Text messages and phone calls add psychological aspect to warfare in Gaza

srael and Hamas have mounted psychological warfare on each others’ civilian populations. Hamas says it is firing threatening text messages at Israeli mobile phones and jamming radio stations while Israel is bombarding Palestinians with menacing phone calls and leaflets.

“The messages say that the Palestinian resistance missiles will reach you wherever you are and your government won’t be able to protect you,” said Abu Mujaheid, spokesman for the Palestinian Resistance Committees.

Hamas says it can send up to 70,000 text messages but so far there have been reports of just dozens. “[Israel is] sending text messages and interrupting Palestinian radio and trying to scare Palestinians with their messages so we are running a counter campaign by sending text messages to Israelis,” Mujaheid said.

Eddie Izzard gives private performance to survivor of Mumbai attack

Izzard Gives Private Performance to Terror Victim | The Underwire from Wired.com

Will Pike, a 28-year-old Englishman, was badly injured in the tragic Mumbai terror attacks -- shattering his body in a failed escape attempt. He has since returned to the U.K. and a spinal unit in a London hospital, hoping to walk again.

During Pike's ongoing recovery, he and his girlfriend missed their eagerly awaited night out to see British comic Eddie Izzard. Pike's father wrote Izzard, asking if the comic could send along a note to ease Pike's disappointment and depression.

Izzard refused. Instead, the star of The Riches and Valkyrie showed up at the hospital and performed his entire 90 minute stand-up set at Pike's bedside.

JPG Magazine now a fucked company, after fucking its founders out of the company

LOL, kharma being a bitch and all that. The Raw Story | JPG Magazine shutting down next week
JPG Magazine, a print and Web publication featuring pictures contributed by amateur and professional photographers, is shutting down. JPG Magazine editor-in-chief Laura Brunow Miner, in a post on the magazine's blog on Thursday, said that jpgmag.com would close next week and publication of the print version of the magazine would be halted.... Nearly 200,000 photographers have contributed material to JPG since it was taken over more than two years ago by 8020 Publishing, now known as 8020 Media.
Flashback: Poor Mojo's Newswire: Fucked out of your own company: The Real Story of JPG Magazine
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about community-building, it’s this: Do Not Lie. People are too smart and well-connected to believe a lie anymore. So, with that in mind, the story I’m about to tell is absolutely true as I experienced it.... In September, 2004, Heather and I went for a walk in Buena Vista Park and started dreaming up a community project. The idea was to create a printed venue for all the awesome photographers we saw online. That afternoon I checked: jpgmag.com was available. A couple months later, we launched the site. ... Discussing it later, Paul assured me. “It’s no big deal, it just means I’ll have some extra stuff to do, but otherwise we’ll be equal partners.” I believed him.... After 11 years of working at other people’s startups, I was finally the cofounder of my own. It was a dream come true.... Unfortunately, issue 10 will be the last one that Heather and I will have a hand in. We are no longer working for JPG Magazine or 8020 Publishing.... In one evening, Paul removed issues 1-6 from the JPG website, removed Heather from the About page, and deleted the “Letter from the Editors” that had lived on the site since day one.
