Thoughts

Bill Dixon passed away in his sleep on Tuesday. I was blessed with the opportunity to spend some time with him these past couple of years. I don't feel that I could really pay him any real tribute in my own writing. So I won't. But I feel that I must take a moment to editorialize a bit. If every musician playing modern improvised music would approach their work with HALF, even HALF the integrity that Bill approached his music with..well, there'd probably be a lot less music. Coming from us at least.

But the music that would be there, would be a lot better.

That's just my opinion anyway.

Rest in peace, Bill. I don't want to admit that you have died, but I guess I have to. You have died, but you have not gone.

In view of the difficulties faced by the journalists in the performance of their work, and their search for the right and exact information and in the absence of the appropriate, professional and intellectual environment of journalism as well as the difficulty of contacting the information sources, those working in the press and media area could hardly find another way than the web-sites and the local and international news agencies to be able to write their articles and news stories. The journalism in the Arab world is still relatively retarded if compared to the Western countries in terms of the means and tools that are available to the media and the provision of the success factors for those who work in this area. It seems clear that the Arab journalists and reporters want to contribute to make every step that may improve the job of the media professionals in our Arab countries and would make the journalism easier; we can only strive for the success of this idea and this service that the Arab mediaseems to be in dire need of. The basic service provided by our website www.sahafiy.com is primarily connecting the journalists from all the Arabic countries with each other as well as with researchers, scholars and specialists in all areas, in addition to the businessmen all over the world and the major global companies.
