Tommy Sheridan broke my computer

After the News of the World lost the libel action brought against it by Tommy Sheridan MSP, it hit back with audio tapes which -- the paper claims -- show that Sheridan perjured himself in court. Sheridan has replied that the evidence against him has been manufactured. MI5 might be involved, he says.

At the risk of being called a traitor to the working class -- as I was when I finished with Labour Party Young Socialists, an outfit controlled at the time by Sheridan's political ancestors -- I can only hope that Mr Sheridan will not be giving technical evidence in his defence. According to the BBC, 'Mr Sheridan, a Glasgow list MSP, remained defiant as he held a press conference in Dundee, and insisted the tape was manufactured.
"I saw with my own eyes when we made party political broadcasts what we can do with computer graphics as far as voices are concerned," he said'.

If the author of Imagine and A Time to Rage thinks you can alter voices with computer graphics, he's probably not your first port of call for IT support.

I would like to extend an invitation to bloggers to join in on a collective blogging section of our upcoming winter issue of Reconstruction. The issue is the “Theories/Practices of Blogging.” In addition to the special section of posts on blogging there will be about a dozen essays on blogging.

The deadline is October 20th.

Our intent in this section of the issue will be to collect a wide range of bloggers and link up to their statements in regards to why they blog (something many of us are asked) and any statement they have on the theories/practices of blogging.

If you already have a post on this you can feel free to use it, or, if you are interested, you can submit a new one.

We will link to each statement from the issue at our site, with the intent of creating a hyperlinked list of statements on blogging that can serve as an introduction to blogging (or an expansion of knowledge for those already blogging).

If you are interested please contact me at mdbento @
