- Listening to:
- Beethoven, Kreutzer sonata, played by
Itzhak Perlman and Vladimir Ashkenazy.
- Still reading:
- Elton's England under the Tudors. I've
read about Henry VII, Henry VIII and his divorce of Catherine of
Aragon, leading to the dissolution of the monasteries and the
formation of the Church of England. It's fascinating stuff, and
it's good to be reading about this half-known stuff in detail.
My link of the day is to a commercial outfit that hopes you will
maintain what it calls e-circles
on their web-site
. In exchange to looking
at their ads, and for accepting a slew of cookies, you get to form
various groups (whether they be of family or friends), and do things
like share a calendar, make announcements, chat online, and upload
photos for a photo album.
It's quite a nice idea and seems well implemented (you get to choose a
little cartoon graphic to represent yourself; cute), but it is also
somehow slightly too commercial.
