    Pakistan army in trouble?

    According to the BBC, villagers in Pakistan occupied Kashmir have accused Pakistani armymen of raping one of their women two weeks ago. They have filed a case with the local policemen. The villagers claim that the army has been pressurizing them into withdrawing the case. The Mukhtaran Mai episode continues to be held up as an example of Pakistan's poor attitude with regards to women and women's rights.

    That said, it seems like armymen aren't having a nice time in Kashmir. Last week, Indian armymen shot three boys past midnight mistaking them for terrorists. The offer of compensation has been rejected by the families of the killed boys. The killing led to protest, unrest and a bandh in the Kashmir valley.

    Wired Magazine: Ten years that changed the world

    The next issue of Wired Magazine focusses on the decade since the Netscape IPO which revolutionized the way people looked at the internet. Obviously the internet, and the web, became a lot more ubiquitous as the years rolled on.

    The issue features a virtual who's who of the internet age. There're the usual suspects, Marc Andreessen (Netscape), Jerry Yang (Yahoo), Shawn Fanning (Napster), Steve Jobs (Apple), Larry Page & Sergei Brin (Google), etc.
