Lying around feeling unwell, but improving, I've been doing some surfing....
So far, I have listened to/watched:
The Dalai Lama on Buddhism, (which was,predictably about Buddhism) I listened to Obama's speech in Cairo on Youtube, which I had long waited for time to hear, and which was astonishing. The man has no fear. I listened to Steven Pinker on The Blank Slate (which was unconvincing) , and on Declining Violence (which was heartening) over at TED Talk, along with Gever Tully on the Tinkering school, and on 5 dangerous things we should let our kids do (which was too short for all that he isn't a brilliant speaker)
I have King Lear lined up, I have heard an exerpt from Pride and Prejudice read by an actor from The Wire, if you've ever watched it. I hadn't till I watched some clips. The reading was a little weird, I think they were trying to make it feel intimate and Sunday morning with your lover-ish, but it felt a little odd. Though they chose a great passage, where Darcy proposes to Elizabeth, the first time.
Then I tackled some annoying computer problems, and all is much faster now.
I am getting a little tired of being sick though, can I just say that?
