The #4 item on Twitter (behind Bailout, McCain and iPhone) is Selamat Hari Raya. #5 is #atlgas, for gas in Atlanta.

Selamat Hari Raya, indeed! If my memory serves me well: “A great good morning,” somewhat ala have-a-nice-day, but far less banal. It is nostalgic for me to read Malay/”Indonesian”. Lovely sentiments on a day that is both Eid and Roshashoneh. To Muslim and Jewish friends both, a sweet holiday and healthy year. To Christian friends similar wishes and the hope that they — as peoples of all religious backgrounds — will grow in their knowledge and appreciation of the “others” in their midst.
PS. Bravo for showing this small but important bit of proof that the net and web and social networking are no longer exclusively American or Western.

Doc. For an expansion on my comment above and for a few words on the infrastructure and corporeality/incorporeality of the internet, see this new post on my weblog “HakPakSak”:

@profcarroll Why trust the purveyors of what you don't want to help you not want it, when they obviously have no interest in doing so?

@Bitly: Dislike the new UI. Way too gimmicky and fancy. Also, what happened to j.mp? Gone or just hidden as an option?
@Ednever @realjohngatto If the kid wants to be an engineer and to learn what it takes. And castes are what IQ testing creates. Been there.

@johnny_oman I'm sure that's what it said. I'm also sure all those scores are mistakes, since we are not numbers. :-)
@Ednever @realjohngatto Different point. When it's used a priori to sort kids into castes, it's wrong.
