Sunday Papers #2: 31rst January

Had quite a busy week this week but here are a few posts that are worth reading.

* This is a surprisingly interesting thread on UK indymedia. It starts with an (unfair in my opinion) criticism of Shift magazine, and a (fairer) criticism of Turbulence before moving onto an interesting discussion on intellectualism, the academy and its relationship with radical movements.

* The crisis deepens in Greece. Protests begin over the Greek states’ plans to impose austerity on its citizens for the security of its economy and that of the Euro-zone.

* A little more lighthearted is this insurrectionary random text generator. Very clever piece of programming with an important purpose. Not to criticise insurrectionism per se but to highlight the dangers of seductive rhetoric. Coming to a glued cash machine near you.
