"Zabaleen" is the Arabic term for those visionary and enterprising people whose culture revolves around recycling. The Zabaleen are experts at "transforming one man's garbage into another man's gold" and aspire toward a net zero-waste economy. Applied and supported this could lead to true energy independence, not only by radically reducing our demand for "raw materials" and hard to extract natural resources but by recycling other less obvious phenomena and materials that are now wasted.

Updating Ipod Touch
Wasted much of today dealing with the aftermath of updating Ipod Touch 1G to firmware 3.1.3. DON'T DO IT! Lost all of my painstakingly gathered (from MxTube) energy tech instructional videos that I need to take to Jerusalem, West Bank and Ramallah next week. 3.1.3 can't be jailbroken, even with redsn0w. My advice: don't go further than 3.1.2.
