Links Update: Feminema

On a whim I clicked onto the link for Feminema at Professor Zero's blog, and decided to add it to my List of Links. There's still much to do in the way of spring cleaning, but I see Hattie is organizing her sidebar too.

Kunstler: Virtual World Isn't the Real World

Episode 108 of the KunstlerCast: The Virtual Realm vs. the Authentic.

It's ironic that this is broadcast via the Internet, but still well worth a listen.

Relevant to the topic: Neil Postman's Technopoly: The Surrender of Culture to Technology.

The Most Loathsome Americans, 2009

I just found the list of the Most Loathsome Americans, 2009, compiled by The Buffalo Beast. Number 18 is Blankenship, head of Massey Energy, and this was before the recent mining disaster in West Virginia.

Much to Ponder

Hattie's Web is one of the first sites I check every day. Hattie is skeptical of charter schools and addressed this in a recent post. I think public education will not be feasible in its current state, especially in a post-peak oil world. I have a lot to read and re-read on public education and will post something more thoroughly later.

Kunstler has a great column today on New York City.
