This is an unusually new way of discussing questions of nationality and nationhood; at least from Hobsbawm's, Bhabha' and Anderson's. I am proud to be a Kenyan which simply means: Sitting under a towering palm tree next to the ancient Indian ocean, typing your dissertation on globalisation away on an American laptop, dressed in nothing but an ethnic sarong (shuka) while sipping 1st class tea and monitoring a crouching lion two feet away from your Japanese sport car...all these while rhythms from a distant ngoma-drum welcomes you to this wonderland where Queen Elizabeth got wind that she is the next ruler of England. Cheers!

Leaving your comfort zone. Wonderful writting and a true fact of life. I was impressed so much by this story. Bittersweet!

From: Sarah on Saturday, January 24, 2004 at 11:13:50 (EST)

hey! hasn't been any new editions in the guest book this year. As eagles we fly, Not knowing why, Life passes us by, We all try; To fit in I don't, do you? Love Sarah

The broken links (scattered thoughts, regional contacts, etc) are now fixed.

From: Ben McSkimming on Tuesday, June 24, 2003 at 10:59:03 (EDT)

Great job on the site, scattered thoughts and regional contacts pages are down though. I was editor (behind Erik) of the first 3 issues and assisted with editing on the next 2. The U2 story in issue two was actually reworked by Erik and myself. Cheers!

Great Site guys

From: Ward on Wednesday, March 27, 2002 at 15:47:01 (GMT)

Hi all,

I have had to restore the site from backups, as the server that hosted it had a serious disk crash. We haven't lost any data, so the only consequence of this crash was a bit of downtime.


From: Erik Parsons on Thursday, February 07, 2002 at 01:05:10 (GMT)

Hi there folks! Great to see Global Express still going...for those who don't know, I was a founding editor, along with Laura. Must say I would never have scored a job in marketing/IT without that experience. Anyway, I was retrenched late last year and, since 9-11-01 my focus has returned to music/politics/new media.

From: Eliana on Monday, November 12, 2001 at 04:06:26 (GMT)

I have had the chance to read "Passion" couple years ago several times and enjoyed it every time I read it. I am glad to find this web site and still have the good opportunity to read "Passion". Greetings, Ela

this is my first visit hi every body

From: Nana-Kojo Jantuah on Monday, August 06, 2001 at 13:28:43 (GMT)

This to inform my fellow globalists that following my article in the Global Express edition : Which Career Path? where I shared a little bit about my journey up to the point of 'searching internally for diamonds', I am now leading a planning team for a conference on Slavery: Looking back, Moving Forward. Date: 7 November 2001 at Goodenough College, London House, Mecklenburgh Square, London WC1N 2AB. All are invited. By the way, I'm now completing my MA Diplomatic Studies dissertation on 'Healing the Legacy on the transatlantic Slave Trade through Forgiveness'.

I am from China.It is great that I have came across this wetpage and got to know GE.It is the kind of magazine I have been looking for for years. Thanks for your great job.

From: Dina on Friday, July 20, 2001 at 21:22:32 (GMT)

Just a very positive and smiling hello from a Croatian girl opening her eyes and watching the bright future:)

From: Laura Trevelyan on Friday, July 13, 2001 at 22:24:09 (GMT)

Hi Libby! Thanks so much for your encouraging message to Nicci and I. Yes, I suppose it is fairly amazing that GE is still going after all this time. One thing's for sure, it's a fantastic help having loyal supporters/subscribers like you. Hope life is treating you well? Have you heard about the Global Hoho to be held in India at the end of the year? I am hoping that the young people there from around the world can spend some time looking at GE's future ie. Should it continue and if so, who would like to invest time in running it? Great to hear from you me 'ole friend, Lots of love, Laura

From: Libby Boxer on Wednesday, July 11, 2001 at 02:45:57 (GMT)

Hi Laura, Nikki et al. I have just been looking at the MRA website... I've been out of touch for a while. Glad to still be receiving GE though. You guys are doing a fabulous job. It's amazing to look back at its humble beginnings and think about those subscription records and doing the send out from Adelaide and now look at how far it has all come! Keep up the great work and keep in touch. Libby :) P.S. Regards to anyone else reading this who knows me.

I surfed here after doing a google search for Martyn Lewis News looking for info on his calls for more positive reporting and more edifying journalism. Interesting concept, Ward. I shall certainly revisit even though I'm in my 40s. Respect.

From: mubashir on Thursday, July 06, 2000 at 16:37:07 (GMT)

There are articles online now for all issues. No more pages with "coming soon"!

From: Nicci Long on Thursday, February 10, 2000 at 12:12:47 (GMT)

Many thanks to Ward for updating the site and keeping us up to date and in touch!

From: Ward on Sunday, February 06, 2000 at 19:36:59 (GMT)

I have updated the site thoroughly - there is a new look. Hope you like it!

Peter Ustinof is traveling the Pacific on the trail of Mark Twain on U.S. Public TV. He confronts youth of mixed culture who wonder who they are and where they are from. Peter has Russian, French, Spanish and other heritage. He philosophizes that he is a self appointed member of civil society and is from everywhere.

What is a community???? I am from a small town in Vermont (U.S.A) and community means exactly how it sounds common unity. The philsophy that is often used is that of the American Indians. "It takes a village to raise a child." To work together towards a common good. Another key is to except everyone as they are and not as they ought to be. I hope this help it is a little brief and choppy.
From: Richard Davis (at at 19:10 on 26 Feb 99)
Hi there. I'm after the email address of Chris Baynard-Smith. Can anyone help? By thw ay for those who know me I'm coming to the UK in April/May so might see you then.

One of the older issues (No. 11, Which career path?) has a selection of articles online now, too.

Nice page!!! Hello Ward! Remember me - Boris from Russia!

The latest issue, Passion, number 14, is out. Have a look at it, it is worth a read. The pages have been updated.
From: David Lancaster (at at 06:41 on 22 Nov 98)
Dear Ward, Well done for updating this site. I was about to alert someone to the need. Cheers, David
From: Ward (at at 15:15 on 21 Nov 98)
I have taken on the job of updating the pages. The latest version is now online (more articles will be put online shortly).
From: LUIS PUIG (at at 10:52 on 10 Sep 98)
Foun the Page very good. I came there through a Link in the Latin American page by Ernesto Veras seen at Congratulations !!!
From: Roger (at at 09:29 on 13 Aug 98)
Would anyone like to take on the job of updating these web pages?

Welcome Generation-Choicemaker. Never forget who you are... made in His image...for Freedom. Man is earth's Choicemaker. He is by nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of Criteria. His unique and definitive characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural foundation of his environment, institutions, and respectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is oriented to a Freedom whose roots are in the natural Order of the universe. Let us proclaim it. Behold! The season of Generation-Choicemaker. +vincit veritas+ Psalms 25:12 119:30, 173 Shalom

Hello everybody, you've done a great job with this website although I tried for about 2 weeks to connect and the server was always down. Never mind

I've just come to the GE website, and its great to see a magazine with different ideas and values. The website isnt bad either!
From: Vikram Kanyalkar (at at 02:49 on 4 Sep 97)
Hi everyone,this is my first visit to the Global Express website.I must compliment the creators of this website for their excellent work.Keep up the good work.Looking forward to the next issue of GE.
From: Erik (at at 03:29 on 14 Jul 97)
The advert looks great Roger - nice colours. Glad, too, you've added GE to the Internet Link Exchange. The new issue is out now - hope you like it.
From: Roger (at at 17:59 on 7 Jul 97)
Ben, now the visitor count is important not only because we're driven by our egos but because I have added this site to the Internet Link Exchange, so the more people that visit us, the more adverts for us will appear elsewhere. What do you think of this advert?
From: Ben (at at 07:12 on 3 Jul 97)
Hello everybody. Please remember to visit this site as often as possible to keep that visitor count up. Get ready for Atonic's new CD late this year or early next year to take over the world.
From: Erik (at at 07:40 on 18 Jun 97)
Christine, Laura and I are having a look at this page - Laura for the first time. We are busy with exams and production of the next issue. I've prepared text for another couple of issues to add to the pages. We'll see when Jit Mun has the time.
From: Roger (at at 15:44 on 17 Jun 97)
I just wanted you to know that I've change the settings on this computer again, so I need to know that the bulletin board still works. There's been no action on the GE front for months. What's happening, folks?
From: Phil Lancaster (at at 00:10 on 16 May 97)
Greetings - and congratulations on a pretty fantastic GE site. When's the next issue coming out? Perhaps it might be worth having a section about upcoming issues?
From: Erik (at at 13:06 on 5 Apr 97)
Personally speaking I think this is great. I wish more people would use it...we don't expect quality prose...just ideas, questions and suggestions for the magazine or web-page (or anything)!
From: Roger (at at 16:54 on 29 Mar 97)
I see noone has used this much. I've just restyled this web page, although that's hardly likely to make a difference. I am glad to see that there have been some more readers of the GE pages over the last few weeks. Not a lot though.
From: Ward (at at 14:41 on 5 Mar 97)
Nice to see this works. Now all we need is people to visit the GE site, and this Bulletin Board...
From: Catherine Ruffin (at at 18:02 on 4 Mar 97)
Hey all- Glad to see this is finally up and running!! Now for a little I am helping to put together a conference on communities. Specifically it is titled "Beyond Boundries: Choices for Community." One of the things I've been trying to develop is some concrete idea of what community is and I would love to hear some other ideas on the subject. What makes up your community? What kind of impact do you as an individual have on community? And what sort of community would you like to see develop for the future? Just some things to bounce around!!
From: Erik Parsons (at at 13:35 on 23 Feb 97)
Yes, this would be a great way to discuss G-7 related issues.*I hope people will comment here on articles/ideas they find on this*site. Also, any suggestions for topics to discuss here?! Questions*or information/services required or offered, might be good too :-)*And leave your URL here if you'd like a link to it from these pages.
From: Edward Howard (at at 04:23 on 20 Feb 97)
This is a good way to communicate. How about the new issue of GE. Are we going to see some of the issues of G7 debated here?
