Another day of links

Poking about the internets again - this time adding blogs to 'blogs I follow'. The adding is haphazard at the moment - I expect to go through later and tweek the list.

Some things found while wandering:

An article on honeybee colony collapse and possible fixes.

Oxford English Word of the Day

Spanish Word of the Day

Poetry Daily


I also ran across mention of "Amazonfail" - if you don't know what it is, that's what google's for - Neil Gaiman had a couple good posts on it. Which tied in with some thoughts that have been kicking around for a week or so on time.

Measures of time. As in - from who's perspective?

We are not living in a universe that exists at a rate tied to human perception. Either a faithful perspective or a science-oriented one (and these two states don't exclude each other) will say, there are larger things in motion than you.

It is an amazing thing, this internet, and the information that flows so swiftly along it. It is awesome, how fast our world continues to change.

It would be a mistake, I think, to assume that everything changes so fast. Or needs to.
