In Brief

If there's anything more boring that the Windsor Star on a Monday, I have no idea what it is, Windsor. Should have kept that Denial vid til today.

I wonder if there have been any studies done on the quality of family time spent online. Around here, at least half of the time is spent seated back to back on individual computers, sharing stupid videos we find or fun facts learned or new songs heard.

[Speaking of new songs heard, you can hunt down the new Portishead album if you're industrious. I can't recommend you do, since that's illegal. But if you're a criminal who chooses to do so, you'll probably like what you hear.]

Nice to see Gord endorsing union workers lube up and take whatever they can get. He calls it 'growing up'. Others might call it 'selling out the values your organization was founded on,' but hey, at least you can keep eating.

I kid, I kid, I'm actually happy for the Casino workers. I've been saying unions should lube up for years.

Heading to an interview with Richard Florida and Heather Reisman at Bay/Bloor tomorrow night. Should be a good time for any of you interested in the ongoing 'creative class' discussion. I'll report back.

Interesting: Prof says students can't sell notes taken in his classes because it violates his copyright to the lectures. Oh lord.

Oh, and everyday this week I'll be reminding you the UWSA AGM is this Thursday at 4.00 pm in the CAW commons.

My plan is to irritate you into going.

RAW starts.....now.
