In a few hours it will be June 1st, which is the closing date for the Constitution Fun Challenge (NaCoWriMo). There will be a week for the different constitutions to be published on SSR, then I will post a wrap up with a poll.
Don't worry if your constitution is not finished (mine isn't) post it anyway, as we will do another CFC later in the year and you can continue on/revise your constitution.
To post a Constitution on SSR, you need to have an account here, if you don't have one,
If you have supporting PDF files to upload, then click on the
link, and upload them to SSR.
Then post your article by clicking on the
New Article Entry
link. Choose a section (articles or rafferty's), choose the topic as CFC/NaCoWriMo, fill in the intro (SSR convention is no more than two paragraphs in the intro) and then fill out the body with any explanations and the constitution.
It would be cool if you could post the constitution into the body of the article, but if it isn't working out, then linking to a PDF is ok too. To link to a PDF from the your files section, you will need to link by an A HREF tag.
If you have problems formatting the text to your liking, publish the article anyway, and then bring it to the attention of myself, adam, avocadia or any of the other editors to clean up the formatting.
I will post mine tomorrow. Like I said, don't worry if it is incomplete, or just one section, or a bill of rights, or editing part of an existing constitution, or whatever; nothing too small or too big is out of bounds. Publish or be damned :)
We have until June 7th to publish them. Then I will post the wrap up article which links to them all.
Phoenix Eats Out
is the restaurant review site for Phoenix
and Old Town Scottsdale
which lists the modernist and contemporary restaurants, taverns and bars in the greater Phoenix area.
This is the list of the most popular restaurants pages from phoenixeatsout.com that have been viewed the most;
My personal favourite restaurants in Phoenix are AZ88
, Humble Pie
, Orange Table
, The Vig
and others coming close behind. View the complete list with the photo-journalistic style images on phoenixeatsout.com
Arizona is an outdoor state and has lots of hiking in the city and around the state. Phoenix is unusual for most cities in having several large mountains in the center of the city with great hiking. Anyone who comes to Phoenix has to do the Echo Canyon trail on Camelback
and the Summit Hike on Squaw Peak
or Piesta Peak. The views of the city, suburbs and surrounding mountains are wonderful from Camelback and Piesta Peak.
For more experienced hikers there is the McDowell Mountains in North Scottsdale that has several difficult and strenuous hikes in Tom's Thumb
and Bell Pass
. Alternatively, you can hike the highest mountain in Arizona. At 12,600 feet Humphrey's Peak
is a long and difficult hike.
Between 2004 and 2009 this site, southsearepublic.org
, was a constitutional blog based on scoop which focused on Australian and global constitutional issues.
One of the strongest aspects of it was the development of constitutions by those involved in the blog. These constitutions are the outcome:
The constitutions were built using principles from Montesquieu's separation of powers, the enlightnment's universal political rights and the ancient Athenian technology of sortition and choice by lot.
South Sea Republic started in 2004 as an Australian constitutional blog in 2004 based on scoop software. It was an immigrative outgrowth of Kuro5hin. The archives for each year since then;
The articles are ordered by views.
I am an Australian living in the United States as a permanent resident.
I am a software developer by trade and mostly work in Java and jump between middleware and front end.
I originally worked in the New York area of the United States in telecommunications before moving to Washington DC and
working in a mix of telecommunications, energy and ITS. I started my own software company before heading out to
Arizona and working with Shutterfly. Since then I have joined a startup in the Phoenix area and am thoroughly enjoying myself.
I do a lot of photography which I post on this website, but also on flickr. I have a photo-journalistic website which lists
the modernist and contemporary restaurants in phoenix. I have a site on the Australian Flying Corps [AFC]
which has been around since the 1990s and which I unfortunately
lost the .org URL to during a life event; however, it is under the www.australianflyingcorps.com
The AFC website has gone through several iterations since the 90s and the two most recent are Australian Flying Corps Archives(2004-2002)
Australian Flying Corps Archives(2002-1999)
which are good places to start.
