El Naschie wrote a back-cover blurb for his book Chaos for Engineers.
Kapitaniak was a member of the old editorial board of Chaos, Solitons and Fractals (CSF) before Elsevier fired them en masse.

and notes in an email to me that
all the common works were published in respectable journals or presented at respectable conferences in the era just prior to the foundation of CSF.
We mentioned that Kapitaniak is going to attend CHAOS 2011 in Crete. On the off-chance that any of our readers are attending CHAOS 2011 or know someone who is, El Naschie Watch would love anecdotes or pictures from there.
Thanks to snake.eyes for the photo of Reinhold Richter's Villa. Here's a bigger version.
El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Friday, December 17. Take the wisdom of Vladimir Putin. Original Arabic or Google's English translation.
El Naschie admires Putin's realism and desire for a strong, united Russia. He thinks Putin had to clamp down on democratic excess as a threat to Russia, similarly to how he views the situation in Egypt. Reins on democracy can be loosened later. Switzerland can afford full democracy because there are no existential threats to that country.
"What crimes of national security, crimes of the economy, and crimes of policy are committed in your name, O Democracy!" he says. And "Thank God the parliamentary elections ended in a landslide NDP victory". He says he's not an NDP member though.
There is no Saturday column. He is finished with this subject, so maybe he'll talk about something more interesting on Sunday.
