On Sept. 11th, 2001, the world changed. The war of the rich vs. the poor started. The middle eastern countries who, led by extremists attack the United States of America by attacking our centers for Trade, commerce, and security. This attack was somewhat unsuccesful, because we still posses the ability to strike back; we still have leadership able to retaliate. But there intention, to bring their grief and suffering and anger to our attention, has been accomplished.
We now know the extent of their hardship; We know their level of poverty and their perception that it is America's fault for perpetuating this struggle for life. They have no choices. They have to struggle for thier survival, their rights, thier way of life.
Today is technically when the our project began. I emailed the group about creating our site in the image of slashdot by using the slashcode foundation.
I hope that the idea goes over well with the guys. We need project like this one to sharpen our skills. Slashcode is large and it will take us some time get it up and running, but once we do we can push our network harder than before.
The only problem I perceive us having is making a exceptional front end. The documentation for slashcode back end is thourough but it looks like we'll have to build the front end from scratch.
Since I've go the experience there, I'll probably have to spend most of my time doing that.
