Questions for the Reader:
-Has the Reader heard of the European Social Forum?
-If Yes, or No, what is the first association with this concept?
-Is the Reader going there?
From Thursday to Sunday onwards, the centre of London will be facing this crowd of ten thousands of socio-politically active people around. There will be some sort of famous guest speakers. And I’m going there, not really sure what to think of the lot (maybe kind of radical, or do we need to be more radical on these days?), but just wanting to be there in case anything legendary happens. What d’you reckon? Are all so-branded ‘anti-globalists’ the same, or is Another World Possible like their slogan goes? Or is Another World Just Not Necessary and is this one Just Fine?

Here I am.
Somewhere on an indefinable spot in an abstract world of electronic sparks traveling with rapid speed through wires, cables, networks. I have joined an insider’s crew of (supposedly) intellectual scribblers.
It has taken me a while to get this blog done, as the last ten days or so have passed like a blink of my eye. Time’s really flying on this campus. And there’s still so much to be done. (Blogging can also mean: typing away to avoid reading some two hundred pages for History, and Sociology.)
I hope to be updating this blog frequently, and be a bit less vague in my next entries. This one’s just to get settled, and let whoever know I’m there.
PS: the website that I have put up to share with you is the address of a Dutch youth culture press agency, that I publish articles for on a free-lance basis. In case you speak (or want to pretend you speak) Dutch.
