the future of this outdated blog and life streams

This is yet another well intentioned “I’m going to start blogging more” blog post that you see elsewhere but this one is mine. It’s just not the same since micro-blogging (twitter) came along but we’ll see. I almost converted to Habari but then got distracted committing to habari-extras (helping clean up the plugins) and have since been waiting for Habari 0.7 to be released (it’s within the 0.6 cycle currently). And now I’m distracted again, this time with life streams.

So, I’m going to either help work on the lifestream Habari plugin or use something totally different, something geared towards life streams. The arstechnica article titled “Make your own lifestream with open source Storytlr offers several ideas and methods and I’ll most likely end up with something from there. Stay tuned.

And thank you for reading this entry.

    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Any ideas? Bless you!

  3. By Sakura Murakami and Krishn Kaushik TOKYO/NEW DELHI, March 20 (Reuters) – Japan’s
    Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on Monday announced a new
    plan to promote an open and free Indo-Pacific, promising billions of dollars in investment to
    help economies across the region in everything from industry to disaster prevention. The plan he announced in New Delhi is seen as Tokyo’s bid to forge stronger ties with countries in South and
    Southeast Asia to counter China’s growing assertiveness there. Kishida
    also said Japan wanted Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to end
    as soon as possible and called on the “Global South”, a broad term referring to countries in Africa, Asia, Oceania and
    Latin America, to “show solidarity” after his talks with Indian Prime Minister Narendra
    Modi. Kishida said there were four “pillars” to Japan’s new Indo-Pacific plan: maintaining peace, dealing with new global issues in cooperation with Indo-Pacific
    countries, achieving global connectivity through various platforms,
    and ensuring the safety of the open seas and skies. Japan pledged $75 billion to the
    region by 2030 via private investment and yen loans and by ramping up aid through official governmental assistance and grants. “We plan to expand the cooperation of the free and open Indo-Pacific framework,”
    Kishida told the Indian Council of World Affairs. He
    emphasised the increasing connectivity among countries and promoting freedom of navigation, with an eye on increasing maritime defence and security among like-minded countries. China has ramped
    up its military presence in the Indo-Pacific and rapidly modernised
    its navy while promoting its Belt and Road Initiative. “The kind of connectivity where you only rely on one country breeds political vulnerability,” Kishida said. “We aim to increase the number of options each country has so that they can overcome these vulnerabilities and achieve further economic growth through connectivity,” he added. NAVAL DRILLS “We will conduct joint maritime exercises with India and the United States, as well as goodwill exercises with ASEAN and the Pacific Islands,” Kishida
    said. Japan, India, Australia and the United States are members of the so-called Quad grouping, created to
    balance China´s growing dominance.

    The four are will participate in the annual naval wargaming exercise Malabar to be
    held in Australia this year. India and Japan have deepened
    their ties in defence and strategic affairs in the face of a
    dominant China. “India is an essential partner when it comes to realising our free and open Indo-Pacific vision,” Kishida later told reporters when asked why
    he chose New Delhi to announce his plan. Modi said strengthening the India-Japan “partnership is not only important for both our countries, it also promotes peace, prosperity and stability in the Indo-Pacific region”. The
    two have different stances on the war in Ukraine, however. “We want to stop the invasion by Russia as soon as possible. In order for that to happen, it’s important for the international community, including the so-called Global South, to show solidarity,” Kishida
    said when asked about his discussions with Modi. Japan has imposed sanctions on Russia,
    as have many other nations. India has not, and it has refused to blame Moscow for the conflict and has ramped up its buying of Russian oil. “Giving voice to the priorities of the Global South is an important pillar of our G20 presidency,”
    Modi said after his talks with Kishida.

  4. By Xinghui Kok SINGAPORE, March 16 (Reuters) – The
    current friction in the Indo Pacific is alarming and “trending in the wrong direction”, but
    the U.S.
    presence was not an effort to contain or invite conflict with China, a senior U.S.

    admiral said on Thursday. Admiral John Aquilino, Commander of the U.S.
    Indo-Pacific Command, said an “AUKUS” partnership between Australia, Britain and the
    United States to provide Australia with nuclear-powered submarines was to boost
    its defence capability. “As good partners, United States and the United Kingdom will go ahead and assist in the ability for Australia to defend themselves,” he said after giving a lecture in Singapore, answering a
    question from the audience. “We are intending to move as fast as possible. And as safe as possible.” The United States under President Joe Biden has been shoring up alliances in the Asia-Pacific of late in an effort to counter China’s assertiveness in the South China
    Sea and over the Taiwan Strait, as Beijing seeks to advance its territorial claims. Aquilino
    said the United States, with its exercises and patrols in the region, was not seeking conflict or to contain China, and would
    not support Taiwan’s independence. Referring to remarks
    by China’s Foreign Minister Qin Gang earlier this month that “conflict and confrontation” would be inevitable without a change in Washington’s attitude, Aquilino
    said it was important he ensures that his partners and China know
    that U.S.

    was not looking for a fight. “There’s a place for China in this world to adhere and follow the rules like all the rest of us do,” he said.
