via facebook.com, Posted via web from noahdavidsimon's posteroust can retweet and what is spam, but considering a network had never existed like twitter before with an account that could break contemporary terms I am asking for leniency. there is a group on facebook with supporters behind my request: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=102808379378 the reason these people are asking for you to do the right thing is because I am a positive member of my community and considering the recent issue of Iranian hackers on twitter we should look at those who early on were responsible for architectural in-fractures as heroes and not ostracized with suspended accounts. this should not be a personal issue between any administration at twitter and should be about what is the right thing to do with a person's name which is out there on the internet for search.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A prominent national Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization announced today that its new public service announcement (PSA), called "I am Muslim, I am American," began airing this morning on the CBS Super Screen in New York City's Times Square.
The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said its New York chapter (CAIR-NY) produced the 15-second PSA, which will air every hour for 18 hours each day through January 16, 2010, on the 26-foot by 20-foot full-motion screen. More than one million people pass through Times Square each day.
CAIR-NY's PSA features an American Muslim NYPD sergeant, as well as a Muslim Little League all-star, a human rights activist, a doctoral candidate, and an attorney. It begins with the statement, "Building Community, Serving Country." Viewers are encouraged to visit CAIR's Web site.

"This public service advertisement features ordinary American Muslims whose everyday lives are dedicated to building community and serving country," said CAIR-NY Community Affairs Director Faiza N. Ali. "This initiative is part of our ongoing effort to ensure that a fair and accurate portrayal of Islam and Muslims is presented to the American public."
Ali added that the PSA will air during the New Year's Eve celebration in Times Square, when up to one million people turn out to watch the ball drop at midnight.
"We hope that the millions of people from around the nation and the world who view this public service announcement will return home with enhanced understanding of Islam and the American Muslim community," said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. "Our PSA shows that American Muslims are a vital part of our nation's social and religious fabric."
Awad noted that a 2007 study by the Pew Research Center described American Muslims as "middle class" and "mainstream." The first-ever nationwide study said American Muslims are "largely assimilated, happy with their lives, and moderate with respect to many of the issues that have divided Muslims and Westerners around the world."

This is FANTASTIC news!
Wasn't Islam already promoted to lower Manhattan on 9.11.01?
Via Al Arabiya:An American Muslim advocacy group launched a massive advertisement in New York City's famous Times Square on Tuesday in a bid to present to millions of Americans a "fair" and "accurate" portrayal of Islam.
The public service announcement, "I am Muslim, I am American," was launched by the New York branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)....
The advertisement starts with the statement "Building Community, Serving Country" and features American Muslims from all walks of life, including a police sergeant, a Little League all-star, a human rights activist, a doctoral candidate and an attorney.
...The campaign will run from Dec. 22 to Jan. 16, and will even be shown on New Year's Eve, when at least one million people are expected to crowd Times Square for celebrations and the infamous countdown, when the ball drops at midnight.
"We have more than 400 million people going through Times Square and we thought this would be a good opportunity to send out a positive message about Muslims," Ibrahim Cooper, CAIR's national communications director, told Al Arabiya.
And for those who have never been to Times Square, Hooper explained that the advertisement will appear on the CBS Super Screen, which is a 26-foot by 20-foot full-motion screen, called a "JumboTron," and will air 18 times a day.

- If there was still any debate in the media world over which is king -- content or distribution -- it was settled in 2009.
Between cable giant Comcast Corp.'s $30-billion deal to take control of NBC Universal and Walt Disney Co.'s surprise $4-billion purchase of comic book publisher and Spider-Man home Marvel Entertainment Inc., it became abundantly clear that it's more valuable to own what goes on the screen than the screen itself. Even a back-of-the-pack cable network like the Travel Channel sold for almost $1 billion, and Nickelodeon shelled out more than $50 million for rights to four old Ninja Turtles characters.
Content owners may be king, but it won't be worth much if these media titans can't figure out how to make money from all the new platforms overwhelming the landscape. There is a general consensus that putting content on the Internet for free -- d'oh! -- may not have been the brightest idea. Much of next year will be spent experimenting with business models to get people to pay for what they are used to getting for free.
Satellite broadcaster DirecTV will be sold to AT&T. The deal will face intense scrutiny, and to get it through Washington, DirecTV will agree to end its exclusive deal with the National Football League. Worried about being left behind, Verizon will start kicking the tires of Dish Network, but Dish CEO Charlie Ergen will lose the deal after attempting to extract too steep a price.
* Hulu will start charging viewers.
Hulu, the free video site owned by News Corp., NBC Universal and Disney, will require people to pay to watch its programming. This will cause a rift internally as Hulu CEO Jason Kilar resists switching to a pay model, leading to his exit.
A Tale of Two Gazas: Website Pictures Deny ‘Humanitarian Crisis’ - Inside Israel - Israel News - Israel National NewsLabels: Gaza
Here are some recent photos from the World's biggest concentration camp: Gaza. The pictures come from an Arabic web site that can be found here.
Towards the Eid ad Adha holiday, Israel allowed approximately 7,000 head of cattle into Gaza as well as electricity, communications and water infrastructures, including bringing in equipment and repair teams to repair water and sewer facilities and to repair turbines and parts of the Gaza power station.
Last August, Israel renewed the supply of gasoline for private use, according to the standard determined by the High Court as the threshold sufficient for humanitarian needs. The military coordinator for supervising shipments into Gaza (COGAT) noted, “While the minimum quotas determined by the High Court are only partially filled because of the debts owed by the gas stations in Gaza to the Palestinian Authority, a decision was made by the Coordinator during the summer to meet the threshold set by the High Court.
“Cooking gas has been transferred to Gaza without restriction before, during and, of course, after Operation Cast Lead. It is important to note that the flow of diesel fuel to the power station continued to take place during and after Operation Cast Lead."
While Gaza authorities and foreign media reported that there were no building materials in Gaza and that residents were building houses out of mud, COGAT said it was prepared to coordinate the entrance of materials for repairing and sealing houses that were damaged during Operation Cast Lead.
Officials also said that construction has stopped because Hamas has taken workers from their jobs.
Other projects include approval of a German sewage plant, repair of a flour mill, restoring the American school and a project of greenhouses and chicken coops at the request of the United States Agency for International Development.
COGAT also noted, “The prevailing economy in Gaza is not an official economy but rather an economy of [smuggling] tunnels; there are no shortages in Gaza, but there is a problem of unemployment, primarily for civilians who are not close to Hamas and have no buying power.
everyone wants me to feel guilty
Yes! The old William Gibson SF books are finally out as audiobooks on iTunes! I've been waiting for this.
Strangely, the first one, Neuromancer, seems to be only there in German, but the old favorites Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive are there, as well as the short story collection Burning Chrome.
(By the way, I'm surprised that Neuromancer and Mona Lisa still have the same covers they had when I bought them twenty years ago, whazzup widdat?)
