Odds and Ends

September 3, 2010

It occurs to me… I am forever posting links on Facebook, and not so much here.

From the New York Times, a facet of the e-reader debate I hadn’t seen yet. Print or Pixels? Publishers Strive To Advance Both. As I’ve said here before, I’m not a fan of e-reader formats, and the notion of reading to kids aloud from an iPad gives me the shivers. This article raises interesting questions though.

Today’s xkcd makes me stupendously happy. Emily Dickinson!

The World’s Oldest Beer I wonder two things about this- one, is it still drinkable, (the story seems to indicate it might be, though I’d be dubious.) and two, wouldn’t they have found Egyptian beer, or at least beer residue, of some kind in a tomb excavation by now?
