Mourning, Variation, Transcription, Completion: Piano Works by Liszt and Busoni

Many of Liszt’s works have complex, protracted geneses. Rather than chisel away in furious, even obsessive, self-criticism like Brahms, working his way toward a final, perfected version – there are exceptions – Liszt tended to move on, sometimes furnishing several, competing versions of an ‘original’ work. In addition, there are, of course, arrangements, transcriptions, paraphrases, and much in between, often again in more than one version. Not all of Liszt’s works – nor Busoni’s, following ...

New Paper Explains Why Technologists Should Rally Behind Section 230

At the request of James Grimmelmann, and with his editorial support, I wrote an essay for the Communications of the ACM called “Internet Immunity and the Freedom to Code.” The abstract: The Internet’s freedom to code is in jeopardy. In 1996, Congress enacted 47 U.S.C. § 230, which says Internet services aren’t liable for third-party content in many cases. In practice, for over two decades, Section 230 has legally immunized coders’ decisions about how to gather, organize, and publish third par...

Born to Rule Himself: Recovering a Lost Dream for Men

What is a man? Many continue to ask, and many offer new answers. Confusion blows across our land, exposing the feeble bridge between technological advancement and self-understanding. Mysteries of far-off galaxies unravel before high-powered telescopes while the face gazing back from the mirror lingers more distant than ever. With a world lying in his palm, modern man remains, to himself, a stranger. Some imagine that two men can marry. Some see no problem with males acting like women ...

Refusing Dangerous Work Is Not Only in the Eye of the Beholder

Written by Daniel Standing LL.B., Editor, First Reference Inc. Hassan v City of Ottawa (OC Transpo), 2019 OHSTC 8 confirms the principle that an employee’s belief in a work-related threat that is purely subjective and hypothetical will not allow the employee to invoke the exceptional remedy under the Canada Labour Code to refuse to work. To legitimately refuse to work on this basis, the employee’s perception of danger must also be objectively reasonable. In this case, the employee’s refusal fail...

Vancouver Canucks Name Centre Bo Horvat Team’s Latest Captain

VANCOUVER — Bo Horvat has been named the newest captain of the Vancouver Canucks. The team made the announcement Wednesday night in a special ceremony ahead of the Canucks home opener against the L.A. Kings. Vancouver went without a captain last year following the retirement of long-time leader Henrik Sedin and his twin brother, Daniel, at the end of the 2017-18 season. Instead, the team used a rotating crew of assistants last season, including Horvat. A lot of thought went into pick...

Theater review: In ‘Gem of the Ocean,’ we hear and feel history

August Wilson (1945–2005) was America’s preeminent male African American playwright, inarguably. His masterpiece and hopefully lasting legacy is his 10-play series, collectively known as “The Pittsburgh Cycle,” each play centering on a decade of the 20th century, each distilling elements of the African-American experience. Written late in the cycle but set during the first decade of the 20th century, “Gem of the Ocean” stunningly weaves together mankind’s brutality and mankind’s hope, theatrical...

Colorado 2019: The Tenkara Summit & Breaking In The Ebisu

Who is Our Enemy in Spiritual Warfare? (Ephesians 6:12)

When Paul embarked on his third missionary journey, Ephesus was the first city he visited. He had briefly visited Ephesus during his second missionary journey and had started a church there (Acts 18:19-20), but he now wanted to return and spend plenty of time teaching and training the Christians in Ephesus what it meant to follow Jesus and be the church in their community. Acts 19:10 records that he spent about two years teaching them about Jesus. During this time, many miracles were performed, ...

Long-term Building in Japan

The Ise Shrine in Japan, which has been rebuilt every 20 years for over 1,400 years.  When I started working with Stewart Brand over two decades ago, he told me about the ideas behind Long Now, and how we might build the seed for a very long-lived institution. One of the first examples he mentioned to me was Ise Shrine in Japan, which has been rebuilt every 20 years in adjacent sites for over 1,400 years. This shrine is made of ephemeral materials like wood and thatch, but its symbiotic re...

What a Prehistoric Monument Reveals about the Value of Maintenance

Members of Long Now London chalking the White Horse of Uffington, a 3000-year-old prehistoric hill figure in England. Photo by Peter Landers.
