BoB

Bij Lars lees ik het volgende » “Band of Brothers op SBS6. Ik ben blij dat ik de serie op de BBC heb gevolgd. Het commerciële SBS6 zendt het uit, dus dat betekent minstens vier reclame-onderbrekingen per uur.” Ik ben het er totaal mee eens. Schandalig. En het was net zo’n prachtige serie. Er was trouwens nog iets wat ik wilde zeggen, maar dat ben ik inmiddels alweer vergeten. Ik word echt oud.

Digital lifestyle on display » “‘The important thing with this is that the web becomes the hub’, explains Mr Burwood. ‘So the information is supplied to us where we want it, when we want it, how we want it.'” Cool idea, but not at the current speeds. Once again I’ll comment, I want ADSL! Sigh.

Conveyor Belt

You’ve probably seen it, I sure have. I’m talking about that documentary on the Discovery Channel, about the Oceanic Conveyor Belt and it’s impact on our climate.

Just in case you’re interested.

Cravings

One activity, however, stands out for its prominence and ubiquity–the world’s most popular leisure pastime, television. Most people admit to having a love-hate relationship with it.” » read more on Television Addiction at Scientific American.
