It’s been a while since I last posted, mostly just because I have zero free time right now. I’d love to sit down and write, as well as relax on a patio and enjoy ice cold beer.
I’m just popping in today to raise two things:
First, this free video is a great introduction to critical thinking, and really worth your time watching. The start is a little patronizing I find, and I’m not a fan of clips of people saying dumb things – it’s easy to do that, and even bright minds like Richard Dawkins can look stupid with clever editing (search on youtube for “Richard Dawkins gets stumped” to see what I mean. If you’re interested, search on Google for that and read about his response to that… Not quite as stumped as the video would leave you to believe)
Video here: Here Be Dragons
If you are interested in broadening the way you think about things, this is a good starting video.
Second, the Canadian Copyright Bill is being pushed through shortly by the MP, Jim Prentice. Most of this bill is pretty crappy, and I’m not a fan. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be, but it’s certainly worth reading about and determining for yourself. If you’re interested in complaining about this bill, which is currently being pushed through without public collaboration, you can do so very quickly to your local representative here:
