Lawrence Lessig

Lawrence Lessig This is such a fabulous site created by someone who has spent a lot of time and effort thinking about issues of online publishing, and the like. I can't wait to begin reading his book "The Future of Ideas".

Dictionary of the History of Ideas

Dictionary of the History of Ideas How useful is this! I wish I had it months ago.

Microsoft reader, and other useful links.

Microsoft Reader - Download Microsoft Reader for PC This is such a useful piece of software for reading ebooks. I'm working on a paper on dissemination of information at present, and this is exactly what we need. Thank you to web_loafer (http://helpway.blogspot.com/) for pointing this out. His site has so much great info on it. Check out BugMeNot, that he has linked to in a later post. Really useful. I hate feeling like a hacker, but I will not put up with having my ability to access information curtailed by people out to make money off of those seeking an education, and if things like this are the best way to avoid it, then so be it!

Back from holiday

After two weeks of doing absolutely nothing, and enjoying it thoroughly, It's back to work today. It feels so good to be getting back to a project I really do love, without the intense exhaustion that made it something of a chore last month. Lets hope I can keep the tranquility up, because it seems to make me more productive.
