I ws commenting to a friend who has looked overy my knowledge base that I was working on history, saying that I was hoping to get caught up on current events.  He shook his head. and said "YOu'll never get caught up.  It's just too big.  I thought, but didn't know quite how to say, Maybe so. But  I don't care whether what I'm trying to do is impossible. I think its worth doing and needs to be attempted. I've said before, and I'll say it again,


You might say it's already warped my brain and eaten my soul. Just about any form of study I attempt is going to be influenced and shaped by the effort I've put into this project, and I'm in so deep I don't see any way of disengaging. I's boring and repetitive, sometimes, but not always.  I keep hoping that something will come of it.


I have been attempting to  examine nations according to what was developing as I examined day-to -day in October, but at the moment, that's not practical. There is still work remaining on the last two spans of my bridge to current events, (the late 2000s and the yar 2009),  I have quite a bit of progress on connecting nations to the third quarter 2009, but the present is a moving target, and with November about to begin, I need to split out the fourth quarter, get that page connected, and move October to it. I haven't yet managed to analyze a full month's worth of events, and I'm only about 1/4 of the way of October.  I've mde quite a bit of progress that will make doing analysis of current events easier to get to,  but it's not finished yet.

I saw a notice that early this month, a grandson of Joseph Stalin filed a lawsuit claiming that a newspaper had defamed his grandfather.  What? is it even possible to defame someone who is already infamous for his many murders? And I'm only talking about his paranoid political purges.

Oh, just in case anybody is interested in seeing this Sapience Knowledge Base I've been given all these progress reports on,  I'm adding a link to the sidebar.

Not quite current, I'm afraid. I see that Ireland voted for the Treaty of Lisbon this time around. I tend not to approve of it much, but then, I have no say in the matter.  Unrest in Africa, but that's not exactly new. 

From September...the wife of the new Japanese prime minister claimed to have been abducted by a UFO and taken to Venus?? What universe is she living in? It's not the same one I inhabit. (There's a story in there somewhere....)

There has been a bit of delay. I went through peoples and nations to make better links to those being referred to in October, and then I went on to separate the history of communities, and make better connections for religion, government, economics, and the remaining major areas. I've cycled back around to the future and done a little more analysis of September and October. I'm falling behind.


But I have another excuse, sort of, and this slow progress may continue for a month or so.  I've signed up for NaNoWriMo, (National Novel Writing Month, and what with participation on the message boards, character and plot outlines and research, I haven't concentrated quite so much on the Knowledge Base. I also have some medical procedures scheduled, so that also works against me.
