Good links

Just cleaning out some bookmarks:

Very funny Mad Lib satirizing ICT4D arguments (see earlier post here).

Egypt has a second round of elections this weekend (the first round was last week). Good article by Gwynne Dyer on "Why elections are a charade in Egypt under Hosni Mubarak", and some background by Eric Trager on "Egypt's Machiavellian electoral gambit" (from just before the first round).

Critical article by Marlise Simons in the NYT a week or two back about problems the International Criminal Court has encountered in pursuing its first trial, that of Thomas Lubanga, who stands accused of committing various war crimes, including the conscription of child soldiers.

Funny article in the NYT by David Segal about how there is no such thing as bad publicity on the web for ecommerce businesses.
