What Others Say about ISOU
"David Anderson is one of those rare individuals, roughneck homie from the neighborhood turned sensitive international businessman. He is on a mission of the heart, which makes him particularly aggravating to left brainers like myself. ISOU is the product of an organic overachiever and is uniquely suited to entertain, perplex and provoke."
"ISOU is fascinating and fun for several reasons. And one of its most interesting facts is that it's by David Anderson who runs Grupo Utopia Internationale S.A., a company based in Costa Rica. So the outspokesn Anderson has a unique perspective on a lot of issues. You'll never ever feel bored by ISOU. Even if you're a conservative you'll want to make it a daily read because Anderson always has provocative stuff and his comment boxes are active. (One of his posts today is an adult-oriented excerpt from a post on Karl Rove's controversial comments). It's one of those Internet gems that aspiring bloggers on the left and right might want to look at and emulate due to its mix of short and long-form posts and no-holds-barred viewpoints. Take A Peek at In Search Of Utopia...and you may well find it.."
The Moderate Voice
"An obvious Enemy of the People. While pretending to follow the Party Line, he persistently displays dangerous Right Deviationist tendencies."
The Politburo Diktat
"David is a smooth-talking, bad ass mofo with a heart of gold, which makes him a cross between Samuel L. Jackson's character from Jackie Brown and Roger Rabbit. Such a stunning combination, indeed...too bad he's a commie pinko."
Fist Full of Fortnights
"I rarely see the open mind that is displayed by David Anderson on his blog In Search of Utopia. Despite his Progressive bent (which some label "liberal" as if that were an cardinal sin) David is always willing to look at alternate perspectives of issues, including those diametrically opposed to his, without an automatic knee-jerk response. Regardless of the ultimate viewpoint that arises in his blog, David cannot be accused of ignoring views that do not align with his inclinations."
"David is one of the most interesting people I know. You can love him. You can hate him. Regardless, you always like him. ISOU is David Anderson; educated, contemporary, and interesting."
The Rogue Angel
"David has his fingers on the pulse of the blogosphere. Featuring a daily scoop of relevant, provocative and timely info, ISOU is a must read. "
"David is the most open-minded and rational guy on the left I know"
"David, you rock in ways that I cannot even describe."
"For a liberal Commie pinko, David's remarkably sane. He has also instilled in me an irresistable desire to visit Costa Rica."
Texas Native Blog
"Check out In Search of Utopia if you want to read the powerful words of a blogger who refuses to stay within partisan boundaries. David isn't afraid to go against the Democrat (or even liberal) grain if it goes against his own convictions."

New Utopia Group website
The new website for the Utopia Group is up. After a couple of years of inactivity on our other site, I decided to create a simple and informative site developed by me on my Mac. It is a simple, text based site that seeks to inform those interested in our services, rather than wow them with Flash presentations or graphics. Please feel free to provide feedback.

My respect for Bush grows...
I think he was one of the worst Presidents in history. But he has shown an extraordinary amount of class since the 2008 elections. Unlike some of his supporters.
And what's interesting is that I believe he is 100% sincere.

Cheney's Interview Today
"Stuff happens..." Well, I would change one word... S$?T Happens... But yeah that about sums it up. Eight years of S$?T happening... I am not going to bother quoting what was a very bitter interview. Cheney knows that he and the administration he served will go down in history as possibly the most inept EVER. The potshots he took at Obama today came off as hollow, resentful and angry. Get over it DICK!

From the demented mind of OBAMA Hater Headquarters
So Obama does a cool thing and sets up a historical office called, The White House Council for Women and Girls. Something widely viewed as progress in a nation where women still don't receive equal wages for equal work. Do our friends on the EXTREME Right congratulate him???
"Obama just created what's called the "White House Council for Women and Girls". Most certainly a noble effort,"
But they could not help themselves...
Continuing the same comment with this...
"which just happens to reek of political pandering."
They followed up that strong retort with this brilliant commentary...
"I wonder, will he hold up George W.Bush as an advocate for women, considering the women of Afghanistan and Iraq are now free to pursue schooling and employment without fear of governmental punishment? Will he present him with an honorary award?"
Interesting question. Lets see, the women of Iraq and Afghanistan, free of fear from Government punishment for higher aspirations. NOT free of being blown to hell while shopping for the weeks veggies. Free from rape by Saddams officials... NOT free from honor killing by their own relatives for BEING RAPED by some Shia or Sunni Militiaman. We'll have to do the math on that one...

Things that make me scratch my nappy head!
NEW YORK - By all accounts, Bernard Madoff isn't talking. And his wife, his sons, his brother and other key employees have lawyered up. That means it could be a while before anyone else is arrested and the full extent of Madoff' vast swindle comes to light. Given the size of the paper trail - a $65 billion scam, 5,000 victims and monthly statements going back nearly two decades - experts say it could be six months to a year before charges are bought against any accomplices.
One has to wonder, if this guy were black, latino and/or poor... Would he have been able to spend all that time in a luxury apartment paid for by his victims money.... Would his wife still be able to live there? Justice for this guy would be to send him and his whole freakin' family to an Alabama chain gang, sell all their assets and return the poor victims money, and have him and his "frau," and his kids work the rest of their lives to pay back these people...
I hope that Apple releases a Tablet Notebook...
And if they do, I will be first in line to buy one...
Interesting Open Letter...
Much more on my Business Blog
Why do I feel so bummed out today? Is it a Friday 13th thing? I am blogging on my dream machine, (A 2009 Model Macbook Pro), wearing my favorite Tag watch, money in my pocket, a contract extension on my current consulting gig all but signed sealed and delivered, a beautiful wife and kids, and still I feel depressed... I don't get it?

Kindle for the iPhone is great!
In fact, it is so damned good that I have probably blown about $200 in the last few days of using it. This despite the fact that I have a backlog of must reads that will take me the better part of the next six months to finish.
There are some very nice titles available. Here is a sample of my reading list.
Pro Blogger - Chris GarrettYes, the screen is a bit small, yes the platform is limited... For example I can not download Magazines and Newspapers. But its cool. Add the Kindle capabilities to my Audible account, and I am good to go on reading material. Which is a good thing, since finding English Language books in Costa Rica can be a challenge.
I gave up my iPhone a couple weeks back and moved to a Blackberry, but I bought a 32 GB iPod Touch while in Guatemala back in November of last year, so I am all good. Love the Touch.
