Information Society

Tuesday, January 8th, 2008

Jeremy is not the only one working on his Northwestern courses. I am putting the finishing touches on my junior writing seminar syllabus when I glance over at Yahoo! Music and see this (on 80s music random play):

Information Society

This is generally amusing given the topic of my course (“Adolescents’ Digital Media Uses, Skills and Participation”), but it’s additionally funny since I was just adding an article to the syllabus that appeared in the journal The Information Society.

Sharpen your vocabulary for a good cause

Time Sink!

I haven’t posted one of these in a while. (Although this was on my latest links list, I’ll give it a separate entry.) The twist: this one has a worthy cause attached to it.

Free Rice

Test your vocabulary skills and donate rice at the same time.

It’s interesting to note which countries have already fulfilled their pledge in international aid to address world hunger, and which countries haven’t taken any concrete steps. Can you guess?

Photos from Budapest trip

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

I didn’t get a chance to blog about my trip to Budapest a month ago. I had a really great time and took lots of photos so if curious then click through to my Flickr set on it for some beautiful architecture and some great food. The links below are just a small sampling and not necessarily of the best shots since it would’ve been too much work to customize the mosaic in that way.
