Notes: Housing 2.0

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

I’m finally finishing the article that was due a few days ago – hate being this late. Prompted by what I came across in several articles recently, it’s about housing for people who are homeless. Except I’m looking at this as a “2.0” issue (yes, I know we all have two-dot-oh coming out our ears, […]

Notes: feminism.

Monday, January 5th, 2009

Occasionally, I note that some articles about feminism have people talking – but I’ve stopped reading them.

Victoria’s Focus Magazine now online

Friday, January 2nd, 2009

In a move that surprised me pleasantly, Focus Magazine – the Victoria/ South Island magazine to which I contribute monthly – has a new website where readers can download (in PDF) the entire magazine, just as it appears in print. It’s a new feature. On the site, they included not just the current (January 2009 […]
