NOTE FROM THE HUMBLE HUMAN GHOSTWRITER (me)
It all came out of a creative writing on www.stage6.com (formerly stage6.divx.com): anytime they do maintenance, they post a message that they are feeding the Hamster (capital H, always).
But the pervasive role of Hamsters in our Western culture is well know.
Do you remember the dancing hamster video, at the end of the 1990s?
There was an high maintenance time in early 2007 on stage6.divx.com, and I publicly worried about the well being of overfed Hamsters, as a way to defuse the piling up of insults on those who were, in the end, giving us a free service (any DivX device came back then with a sticker inviting to use stage6.divx.com).
And then, I invented the United Hamster Front, following the example of Le Carre's "silent opposition" in "The Tailor of Panama" :-) and some studies I had done in the past (yes, weird, I know, but needed) and then... a new world come out.
I started inventing stories that linked crazy hamster toys I found on-line into new machines (like: the new hamster-powered encryption machine associated with an hamster wheel and a lava lamp).
Then a poor parachuting-without-parachute of an hamster spurned me to create an hamster army (or harmy)...
The sky's the limit- and, as somebody taller than me once (almost) wrote: there are more things in the sky than in any philosophy we can concoct :-)
Last I know, the UHF is negotiating to take over a former military base in San Diego, California :-), before going on to... take (temporarily) over the Arctic and Antarctic :-)
For the time being, what you will see here is what was published in 2007-2008, but this material will be backdrop for my Expo2015 book on management of the commons.
