Quotes

"We already know enough to act. The unprecedented threats we face dictate that we must have the fierce urgency of now. It is time to go all out" he says
"People should be able to participate anonymously in the chat room in order to enable safe and comfortable discussion of their health concerns. Furthermore, sometimes posting photos can help convey information. However, this creates opportunities for inappropriate users and uses, such as people posting child porn photos in order to attract potential customers and other kinds of spam messages. In such a setting, it would be desirable to have accountability to deter such misbehavior without compromising anonymity for appropriate use."
"If you gaze long enough into the abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you." I think about this line of Friedrich Nietszche's more often than I care to admit...
"When the war ended five years ago, on the balmy shores of the Nanthikadal Lagoon, most Sri Lankans thought that it was a political watershed that would bring about change and a new beginning for a pluralist and democratic Sri Lanka. That moment has yet to come. We are not only dealing with unresolved issues from the past but also with new demons such as religious bigotry. As we face the political crossroads we are at today, it is imperative that we reflect on our role as citizens and decide on whether we are going to wait for change, or recognise our power and worth as citizens and be the driving force of the new beginnings we wish for."
