Please send him email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Holmquist's full archives are listed here.
Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)
Blogs that for one reason or another Holmquist would like to read on at least something of a regular basis (always in development)

Human Rights Watch has recently issued two interesting reports about Afghanistan.
"'We Want to Live As Humans': Repression of Women and Girls in Western Afghanistan" details that Afghan women are still oppressed legally.
"Fatally Flawed: Cluster Bombs and Their Use by the United States in Afghanistan" argues that the United States did not take all reasonable cautons to limit the number of civilain casualities during its bombing campaign of Afghanistan, in part because the U.S. has not done everything it could to remove bomblets which could continue to cause deaths in the future.
