Sophie's World - Jostein Gaarder

I'm still in the middle of the book but I'm enjoying reading what I didnt cover in school and shamefully since didnt find the time to read up on!!
---------------
Excerpt from review by David Park
Who are you? Where does the world come from? These are two questions Sophie, a fifteen year-old Norwegian girl, receives in her mailbox one day from an unknown stranger. Thus begins a mysterious adventure for Sophie, and an adventure for any person of any age who reads her story.


So, if you have anything of the fifteen year old girl in you, or of an elderly philosopher, or love ideas, then read this book, and if you have anyone close to you, read it aloud and argue out the ideas - that̢۪s the way it used to be done. After all Socrates engaged in dialogues not because he claimed to be a teacher but because he believed it takes two to philosophize. The principal alternative is to watch the Medusa-TV sets and run the risk of having your heart turned to stone.

Flickr is really awesome! Check it out! You can upload via email, website or a super little app that they've made especially for mac os x. you can even get it to make a post with the image directly to your website.

Sign up! Get 5 buddies and you can go pro!! I think pro is whole lot more space on their website for your images.

Picasa

Automated Digital Photo Organizer software, instant photo albums, sharing & printing. Recently bought over by Google. Picasa runs only on windows as macs already have iPhoto :P

They also have this application called hello which lets you post images directly to the blog. I'm using Flickr as it is Mac friendly plus it also allows me to email the photo with the write-up directly to the website.

Ecosystem in a Jar / Biosphere
ACTIVITY: BUILD A BIOSPHERE As you see on FRONTIERS in Going to Extremes, the middle depths of the ocean are a unique ecosystem, home to some bizarre creatures never before seen. In this activity, you will design and build your own biosphere based on a single ecosystem. OBJECTIVEDesign and observe a mini-ecosystem. An ecosystem is a system that has input and output by living and nonliving things knit together as an organized unit. Input can be in the form of energy from the sun or rainwater introduced into the ecological unit. Output is what the ecological unit produces, such as heat, carbon dioxide, oxygen or waste products. To make your biosphere habitable for life, start with soil, air and water - the media that support the "bios" (life) in the biosphere. You will also need to provide food for the inhabitants inside their enclosed environment. If you throw a bunch of plants, soil, water and creatures into a glass container and seal it, yo…
