Eclectic links

James Lileks on vampires - I remembered why I used to read this guy every single day. And he uses words like "flense" and "desuetude" with a casual competancy that wins my heart.

Snowflakes - OK, this is old, but I won't even say how much time I spent with it. And check out the snowflake's shadow... it changes as you cut!

Thousand-Hand Bodhisattva Dance - Amazing.

Google Earth - No, really. Try this. Jaw-dropping.

    Amy, I can see why you spent probably hours with the snowflake maker. It is awesome! I stopped myself after 2 because I knew I would spend to much time on it, and I do have things to do today.

    The Chinese Dance Troup was incredible. That would have been amazing to see live.

    Brennan told me about the Google Earth, but I haven't had a chance to check it out. It looks cool.

    I played with Google Earth last night to find my brother's house in Calgary.

    My shoes could be here any day now...

    My friend and I were recently discussing about how involved with technology our daily lives have become. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


    I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further innovates, the possibility of copying our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about every once in a while.
