Thank you for publishing the software and documentation on CGI work. Dude ... you are major league. Your resume is impressive .... The Struggle section of the site knocked the wind out of me. Guess it is good to expose these human conditions. But the oppressed need to rise up, plan and fight back. (On the other hand if you ever organize a covert or clandestine operation ... I'd be interested) Cheers from Texas.

I have never run across a technical site and found such care and compassion. You are lucky to be as informed as you are. As a technical person, I don't have much leisure time, and if it do, I certainly don't research world plight. You are bookmarked and I will be coming back when i do find some of that leisure time.

Your web page -is- interesting, as your probably tired of hearing ^_^. However, I noticed that you used Thailand, and Tibet, etc, in the titles for your "struggles." My concern with this is that it's not very precise. MOST web-sites that I have come across seem to lump certain attitudes, conceptions, and stereotypes into a name. Thailand is associated with prostition today. Ask someone what they think of Thailand and the first things that might come to mind are Papong rd (the leading district of prostitution and night life in Thailand) and the great food. This is not a rant. However, Thailand is not just one big brothel, and having lived there a while I can safely say that I love and respect the place and -never once- have I ever seen a prostitute (it -is- possible! All you have to do is avoid those areas). To finally come to the point; you might like to come up with something a wee bit more precise when you write articles like this, because they tend to negative stereotyping. NOT that you meant any. Just thought that an enlightened guy should know.. End spiel.

Interesting website. Like many others, I came here looking for scripts, and decided to have a look around. Whenever I see an atrocity or random act of cruelty, like those documented on your site, I have to keep in mind that humans havent matured much, in the last 10,000 years. Thank God I'm surrounded by some decent people to help me keep things in balance. I firmly believe there is hope for us, as a species.

While I agree that there are countless horid attrocities happening every day, I must contend that pestilence, overpopulation, disease, and starvation are absolutely necessary for a healthy ecosystem. Without some of the population dying off, life would be unlivable for others. It's a function of ecology and evolution. Western culture is so afraid of death. We are terrified of such things rather than seeing life as a cycle in which death is necessary and a beautiful part of living. All this talk of stopping such atrocities is admirable but one must keep in mind that such things are necessary to the very survival of our species.

Bruce Cockburn writes (more or less) in "Rumers of Glory" : Above the dark town, after the suns gone down... Two vapor trails cross the sky, Catching the days last slow goodbuy. Black skyline looks, Rich as velvet, Something is shining like gold... |: [They are] rumers of glory || Smiles mixed with curses, The crowd disperses... About whom no details are know, Each one alone, yet not alone. Behind the pain/fear, Etched on teh faces, Something is shining like gold ... [chorus] See the extremes, Of what humans can be... And in that distance some tension's bourne, Energy surging like a storm. Ya plunge your hand in, Ya draw it back - scorched, Beneath it's shining like gold... [chorus] -------------------- I don't have a point. This is just what came to mind.

I enjoyed very much meeting you through your writings. I was searching for cgi scripts and once i was in your page, i started browsing around and i think it is very interesting to see that somebody problem with the selena sol name, that's what caught my attention at first! It invites (if you are full of curiosity) to read more, and in fact, it is very interesting. Keep up being yourself!! Maricel

I really enjoyed your site. You are obviously a sincere person. But I was wondering, do you ever run into any copyright problems with your 'zine? Although you do give proper credit, you are still appropriating content from other sites and hosting it on your own. Not that I disagree with it -- far from it. Though I work for a newspaper site, my personal copyright views differ sharply from the organization that pays me. Informaion should be free, to all, at all times, for all purposes. Unfortunately in a climate of corporate control of information, my view is not often found outside small anarchist circles. I was just wondering if you've run into any legal issues of copyright or reprint rights. If you could answer, that would be great. You do great stuff, please continue.

I think some of the views are biased and perhaps respresent certain extrem opinions, such as, animal right. You can't say that it is alright for American to kill indians, take their land and confined them in what so call reservations, while accuse other nations for human right violations eventhough they are evolving to more democratic. I took American more than 200 years to become what she is now. How could you expect other nations to become democratic overnight. We have to face the reality that the world is diversified. Don't assume that people everywhere grow up in the same environment as most americans do. A lot of people now are struggling for survival not for democracy. To promote democracy, we need to promote cultural, comercial exchange not boycott.

I am in US terms conservative and beleive their is a time for war but do not beleive that it should at all be taken lightly . Oh, I am finishing making dinner for the family but would like your newsletter e-mailed to me. Your thoghts have much merit. I appreciate all you do and offer any assistance I can in you cgi efforts.

In all the times of our history Hemp was considered a gift from the Gods. Hemp delivered raw material for textils, rope, paper, ink and was used as a staple diat and medicine. As a supplement to beverages stimulating and sexually arousing. He gave heavenly vision, ecstasy and strength. He served as a medium between man and god and protected life. Building on this information over the last thousand years a Herbalist remade a line of drinks and snacks, in which there is hemp extract. The legend of hemp lives on. For the sake, or better still how we can promote the effect of hemp world wide we have decided to start a photo competition, in which the positive properties of hemp are shown. In regular periods these posters will be displayed in artistic way throughout bars, pubs, clubs, hotels etc. etc. worldwide. For the selected poster a prize of ATS 20.000 (US-$ 1.400) will be awared to the photograph. Hemp stands for fun, happiness, erotic and ecology ... The slogan: "Spirit of Hemp". It's magic! "Spirit of Hemp" makes the impossible possible, makes negative positive, makes sad happy ... Possible themes: Politics, daily news etc. The possibilities are endless. Ihr Spirit of Hanf-Team

Looking forward to see you there

This is the first time I've visited your page and I haven't reviewed every part of it. I agree with many of the points in your site - the abuse is tragic. Yet, I cannot condone policies encouraging people to not have children. I agree that there needs to be some responsibility involved. Too many children are born due to accidents, leaving them in a family where they are thought of more as a burden than a responsibility and blessing. But my religion dictates that there are souls waiting to inhabitat physcial bodies, this state being part of their eternal progression. So people who feel they can handle the responsibility to love and nourish these young spirits should not be persuaded to not have children based solely on arguments such as reducing the population. Your page suggests awareness, then I'm sure you are aware of the food that is wasted every year. It is foolish to think that we cannot, with the continuing advance of science and with God's inspiration solve problems such as hunger and starvation. The atrocites you mentioned are unacceptable. The terrible futures of unwanted children are unacceptable. I would not support a reduction in population but measures to increase personal integrity and family responsibility so that people on this earth are better cared for. That's all for now. Thanks.

Thank you for a great e-zine, it really moved me. Not much where news to me though, i have been thinking a lot about going to Angola (i speak the language alredy) and work there, but what i can contribute with there will just be destroyed by our way of life here in the west-world. =( It would be better to work here, to change our way of thinking. Perhaps that would do more good.Well i want to belive that anyway. Thank you for the visit. And its nice to see that many people who arent intrested in the problems humanity face, come here for the cgi scripts, and then reads you e-zine too

Once again, the only ones speaking disdainfully about abortion are men! Why is this? Because men will NEVER be faced with this decision; lets face it boys, when push comes to shove, when it's down to the wire, the decision isn't yours, it belongs to your wives, your girlfriends, your sisters, or your mothers. Guess what? It's a bloody painful decision, and you should be glad that you don't have to make the call on this one. I wish I never had to, but I did. I had an abortion two years ago, and this decision has changed me. It irrevocably changed the course of my life. I think about it often, and I cry sometimes when I do. Why? Because like all the women who make the same decision I do (or at least all of the women I've met who have had an abortion), it is one they make reluctantly. I wanted my child; or rather, what I should say is that I wanted the beginnings that were manifest inside me to be allowed to grow into an independent life that I could nurture and love. So why didn't I? For reasons of love; the same sentiment that caused me to want to have a child in the first place. My partner at the time did not want to be a father; he did not want to particpate in bringing up a child. I was in grad school, broke, and had to leave the country I was studying in once my visa expired. So what do I do? Do I go ahead and continue my pregnancy, alone? Move back to my native land and go on the dole? Or do I have an abortion, and continue my life and my partner's life as it was? I had an abortion, but nothing remained the same. Our relationship slowly disintegrated, undermined by guilt. I had a nervous breakdown shortly after that. So, contrary to what many people think, abortion isn't the easy way out of a pregnancy. I think pro-choice advocates do a disservice by not addressing the emotional toll abortion takes on women; while not as serious as, say, the emotional toll caused by having unwanted children in your life that you cannot provide for, it is nonetheless an important issue to discuss. However, even if you look at the surveys found on anti-abortion sites, you will find that most women who have gone through an abortion will, like myself, still say that they believe women should be allowed the option of terminating an unwanted pregnancy. Do I have regrets? Yes, I do. Deep regrets. My life and the life of my partner irrevocably changed. Although I am not interested in reliving the past (I have a husband now who I love more thanI ever thought I was capable of), I wonder how my relationship with my partner would have evolved if it hadn't been for this. Do I regret having an abortion? Yes. But I regret many other things in my life, and I think, given the diffcult situation I found myself in, I did what I thought would cause the least amount of harm. Truly. To my partner, to myself, and to the potentiate inside me. Did it cause less harm than going to term and adding another life to this world? Of course I don't know, will never know this; I can only say that I believe it to be true. I have come to have faith in myself and trust my decision. So what can I say, now? Only that sometimes, making hard choices humbles us, and once we realize this, perhaps we can love a little more and judge others a little less. A good friend of mine believes that the more your heart breaks, the bigger it gets. I am coming to agree with him. And so here I am, spilling my guts into a cgi-bin, a feminist, an activist who protested against Operation Rescue during the last DNC convention, and I am too afraid to leave my name and email address. Or embarrassed. Or something. We're almost into the second millennium...what I want to know: When is the shame and the stigma women bear in relation to their sexuality going to disappear? Can anyone help me? Would revealling my identity here be enough? Somehow, sadly, I do not think so.

Came accross the Struggle section of these pages like most others, looking at the CGI stuff. It made for very good and worthwhile reading, and though I might not agree with everything, I feel most especially for the East Timorense people. I am Portuguese, and though I was only one year old at the time of the invasion, I feel like I should be doing something to help as should we all. Thank you for reminding me of this and helping me find out a little bit more about the whole situation. -Filipe

I came accross the e-zine by accident. I liked it very much and sympathize gfreatly with its aims, to make `the web` much more than a technological, mechanical series of conn- ections (for making money?). One question - the idea of `humanity`: when should we in fact beware of it? It serves at its most basic level to separate itself from animal, from vegetable, from innanimate, from God (and now from machine!) but its dangers are connected to the idea that humanity is a single whole - and that in some ways people who are different can easily become 'subhuman' or improperly human in contrast with ourselves...

I'm disappointed in the abortion piece. It continues to frame the discussion is the tired old "choice vs. viability" dichotomy. You'd think by now that folks could get to the real issues: responsibility, both personal or individual and social or community. Choice advocates consisistently ignore the responsibility of women who engage in behavior that leads to unwanted pregnancy in the first place while Life advocates similarly continue to ignore the repsonsibility of the community to the unwanted child who is brough to term. There is enormous common ground here--how to prevent unwanted *pregancy* (which *everyone* knows how to do) and how to care and provide for unwanted children (again, which *everyone* knows how to do). Your piece here does little to move us in a constructive direction and instead perpetuates the tragic posturing that perpetuates our culture of irresponsibility.

Selena, i like the Struggle. I like what you wrote about "what is war for", and i like that you vote for peace. So do i. I hope there will always be more people with a "peace of mind" on earth. What is not one with itself, cannot eternal exist, and so its to begin what never can end, and end what never can last. We will live in a world beyond war (by Jon Anderson), because we are the children of the universe. Death is only in the world because of sin, if there is no sin, there will be no death. Death itself must die, Live is for living. peace Helle

Eric, I am no stranger to your work. Having shared my postcard script as an Offsite resource, I was hoping to repay in part the mentoring that I have received at your hand like so many others. Today, you've provided me with an education of a very different sort. I offer my own CGI resources as freeware to help increase awareness of an online learning community called Frontiers. Frontiers was my way of attempting to take the resources and skills I'd been graciously given and use them to begin creating intelligent, barrier-free, online learning environments where people could begin a dialogue around complex issues without the barriers of geography. In my trek as an explorer of many different things, my heart was first called to action by a woman named Milly Akinsulure from Sierra Leone West Africa. I had the good fortune of spending a summer with Milly sharing my knowledge of technologies so that she could go back to Sierra Leone with new tools in the struggle to rebuild the social and economic fabric of a country ripped apart by civil war when the Liberian rebels spilled across the border. My time with this brilliant and courageous agent of change lead me to begin Frontiers as a way of facilitating an increased awareness of some of the truly shitty things that go on around us everyday, hoping to inspire people to positive action. Having just finished reading your bridge to the piece on Sayon, the child solider, too many of Milly's stories filled my head once again. Visiting your site (The Struggle) is such a difficult journey because it requires allowing yourself to be reminded of things that most of us in the free world cannot, and would rather not, ever phathom. I recognize "The Struggle" as a fantastic resource to inspire fellow explorers in gain a clearer understanding of some of the issues you so powerfully communicate. Were I lucky enough to have more colleagues like you in meatspace, the struggle would be profoundly more worthwhile. With all that you've already, and continue, to give(n) us, I can only say you are someone beyond attaching an adjective to. If I can ever lend my talents or resources to your work thru The Struggle or elsewhere, you need only say the word. I hope that I can encourage you to spend a few moments at Frontiers upon it's public launch. I have the good fortune of many talented fellow explorers there serving as both social and technical architects of change, and I'm sure they would eagerly make the same offer I make to you myself. You're one of the few public figures who has put ego aside and got on with the business of change. Don't stop. Sue.

I came here looking for CGI-Scripts and left depressed. :( What I don't get is how liberals get all worked up about testing on animals but they are all for killing humans via abortion. There is no mention in Struggle of the mass murder going on in the name of birth control. What about the MILLIONS of valuable human lives that are extinguished every year in this manor? Animals != Humans Humans > Animals There is not an overpopulation problem, there is a food distribution problem. If we could get the evil backwards nations to stop starving their own people we'd be all set. (Sorry for the oversimplification, this is after all a guest book) The US sends tons of food around the world for it to just sit on the loading docks to ROT! The Ukraine region could crank out food for so many more people if it wasn't run by the ineffiecient backwards governments. Anyway, thanks for caring even if I disagree on a lot of your view points. Too many people are apathetic and selfish.

While overpopulation is certainly a problem, an equal if not bigger problem is hyper consumption, with everyone wanting to emulate the bulimic West. If we'd all stop over-consuming, living simply and if advertising would stop the buy-buy-buy propaganda campaigns, we would not be taxing the earth, even in a situation of perceived overpopulation.

The Web is just another uncontrolled human experiment. The only thing you can do wrong is to be untrue to yourself because that corrupts the data.

Bravo, Selena! If we are to avoid the horrors of the past we must not forget it, and if we are to make the future a better place, then first we must begin to correct what is in the now. But don't forget the cultural horrors of the world...the ideals that force our young women (and young men, increasingly) to starve themselves unto death in the name of some designer's idea of beauty. idea of beauty; that still require that an authoritative man be hailed as admirable and a similarly-behaved woman to be labeled "a bitch"; that maintain the fiction that stupidity is a virtue and illiteracy is fashionable; and that continue to instill violence as an acceptable solution and pacifism as "wimpy". Anybody who wants to engage in debate on any of these issues may mail me if they like. Continue your mission, Selena!

I guess this is the right place to ask for feedback on this:

Information is fragile and free.
It is the ultimate product of human activity.
It is not yours but the result of generations
creating structure in an universe of increasing entropy.
Create it, store it, use it, but never own it.
Intellectual property is public property.

As a long time fan of Selena Sols's Scripts, I salute him once again for not only making information public, but bring people together. Just bought is book at Borders yesterday and read the first six chapters... I feel confident about editing his scripts to do exactly what I want.. Thanks for making this site and your others public... Mark McDonald

People forget that it is never enough to simply discuss issues. It is vital for us to lift ourselves and act on behalf of our convictions. The Struggle is both an action and an invitation for others to participate in creating change.

as we build in cyberspace do we want to carry the burdens of humanity or find some way to relieve them..the web is about being more than we find out irl..working on cyberspace to make the 'real' world better is inevitably nec essary....

A few months ago, I followed a link to this site looking for a shopping cart CGI. When I found yours, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. It is a very simple and elegant program. Today I came back to see if you had anything else that might be useful when I came across The Struggle. Again I find myself very impressed. It is rare to find someone who understands the higher purpose of the Web and puts that understanding to use. Keep up the good work!

When I noticed "The Struggle" while surfing the EFF pages, I wasn't sure just what it was, but after seeing Selena Sol's name, I knew reading it would prove a valuable use of my time on the Web. Selena, don't ever give up your struggle for a better world for us all!

I enjoyed your essay. I agree that we each have the power to affect or neglect our world. While it is important to be aware of the injustices of the world, it is also important not to simply dwell on the horror of it all. The human spirit, which we ace ss through our own creativity, brings harmony into the world. Along with the facts we need humor, aesthetics, and expression. I'm not saying a spoonful of sugar will help the medicine go down; I'm saying we need something more to lift our spirits and to reaffirm the life force, which is creative by nature.

I was looking for information concerning making my own web page. And I was pleasantly surprised to read all about your vacation. And I am impressed by your concern about the world we live in today. It is so sad the way things are, but I too believe in the power of the Internet. I believe it can be used for wonderful and productive things, bringing our world together as never before. We need more caring and intellegent people to voice how they feel and perhaps how people can help in there own way.. I want to thank you for your efforts.

Nice initiative. I like it. Don't forget that our allied in NATO - Turkey is constantly on the (for them) good side of a gun pointing at it's neighbours. Why do we accept the intolerable terrorism of the turkish state, and a lot of other states (Indonesia for one) when we bomb the censored out of Saddam Hussein if he gets out of bed with his wrong foot first one morning?

I am beyond touched by your efforts in the struggle section, Eric. We've *talked* before and you know who I am. The truth about the amount of thuggery, torture and pain the US and its allies are responsible for in the name of p rotecting our interests, if revealed in one sitting to one person, that person would never again sleep at night knowing there are people who have painfully given thier lives and are giving their lives so that maybe their children may walk this earth free and fed. The legacy is long and astonishing. It is up to people like us to keep this in perspective as revolutionary new achievements in western state-supported terrorism are accomplished every day.

It is a race against time and stupidity.
