Bringing the world home 1999

Stayed up too late last night seeing Bowfinger, the new movie with Steve Martin & Eddie Murphy. It's a great little film and Edmond & I enjoyed it mightily.

This week I got a new laundry basket. It's just lovely. A beautiful shape and subtle decoration. Plus it's extremely practical and performed well in a trip to the laundromat on Friday night. Our new basket was made by some craftspeople in Ghana. I bought it from Novica which is about as close to getting it directly as you can do without going to Ghana. It cost me only about $15 including the shipping. When I just checked this there were still 9 baskets available.

I found out about Novica from The Hunger Site which you should visit every day. (I've added a banner at the bottom of this page to remind you) [and since removed it because it was too cluttered]. You click one button and food is donated to prevent world hunger. The donation is paid for by the advertisers whose small logos you see on the thank you page. It's a simple demonstration of what can be achieved by small actions of many people. Now I want to see someone do The Birth Control Site and The Self-Sufficiency Farming Site.

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
