Everybody knows that web technology rocks, but not everyone knows that it
rocks a big deal! The new ideas/technologies recently featured on /var/log/blog
are just a few examples of how the Internet and the World Wide Web can changes
our lives and make our lives easier (and happier?).
Friendster is an online community that
connects people through networks of friends for dating or making new friends.
Imagine inviting a bunch of friends to this service and marking them as your
friends. They will build their profile and invite their friends as well.
This story goes on and on, making a huge network of friends and buddies where
every person has a list of buddies and they are the ones who are connected to
that particular person through a link in a graph where people are its nodes.
And best of all, friend lists are public and available to everybody.
You may have heard that everyone on Earth is separated from anyone else by
no more than six degrees of separation, or six friends of friends of friends.
Here is another web site that was trying to prove/experiment
Six Degrees of Separation
and show how small the world can be (apparently, it's down now).
The cool fact about Friendster is their company is just a couple of blocks
away from where I work! (Another fact that shows how small the world can be!)

Muir Woods National Monument is
the best tree-lovers monument that could possibly be found in all the forests of the world
according to John Muir.
We went on a ten-mile hike yesterday. Well, it wasn't supposed to
be that long; but thanks to our professional hiker and genius Navigator
we somehow got lost during our adventure to find the ocean without a map and
had to go around the park and roll down as quickly as possible to beat the sunset.
But seriously, it was a pretty good hike, lots of old-growth redwood, mysterious
rivers and beautiful wild flowers.
Oh, here are some pictures from the last hiking trip to

Badi Badiozamani, Ph.D. filed papers
to run as a candidate for Governor
in the Recall Election in the State of California. This the first time in history that a
Persian-American is running for such a high office.
Dr. Badiozamani is running as an independent. His agenda includes saving California from
bankruptcy through implementation of sound economic policies, bringing
honesty and transparency to the government, and tackling the ever-increasing traffic problem.

A "Dishwasher" is God's greatest gift to us.
An old Arab man lived alone in Idaho. He wanted to
spade his potato garden, but it was very hard work.
His only son, Abdul, who used to help him, was being
held by the FBI for aiding and abetting terrorists.
The old man wrote a letter to his son and described
Dear Abdul, I am feeling pretty bad because it looks
like I won't able to
plant my potato garden this year. I'm just getting too
old to be digging up
a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would
be over. I know you would dig the plot for me. Your
A few days later he received a letter from his son.
Dear Dad, For heaven's sake, don't dig up that garden,
that's where I buried the biological weapons. Love,
At 4 a.m. the next morning, F.B.I. agents and local
police showed up and
dug up the entire area without finding any weapons.
They apologized to the oldman and left. That same day
the old man received another letter from his son.
Dear Dad, Go ahead and plant the potatoes now. That's
the best I could do under the circumstances. Love,
