The Week in Review

From my travels on the web last week.

The corporate cage. An interesting post on the joys of spending your days in a cubicle maze.

Looks like some folks I know are going to try a social lending business in Canada. Social lending matches borrowers with lenders. Usually small amounts of money. Interesting to see whether Canadians will embrace this type of business.

Dave Ramsey, author and host of a popular radio program in the United States, has an interesting program for churches. He offers Financial Peace University for churches to help families restore order to their personal finances. According to Ramsey, 7 out of 10 families live paycheque to paycheque and they spend more than they make courtesy of their credit cards. I did not notice a Canadian version.

Some people have obsessive compulsive disorders. Others measure non-modal peaks and nulls. If you like to read about these acoustic monsters, the text version is here. If you hate reading and prefer to watch then this page has a number of videos. Scroll down for the video on non-modal peaks and nulls. Balloons were used to mark the nulls. And, from what I understand, no balloons were harmed in the making of the video.

Okay. I have been watching the sixth season of 24. Pretty much every night. One or two episodes. And I have a question. Is it me, or does the scar on Jack Bauer’s hand keep changing shape and location? Google could not help me.

With Warner jumping over to Blu-ray, five of seven major studios are now exclusive to that format. Right now it looks like Blu-ray will win the format war. A war that should never have started in the first place.

With all of the discussion on the environment and pollution in our media, I have yet to see this list highlighted. And there is also the dirty thirty. I wonder where Canada sits in relation to these lists?
