For fun, a quiz:
Who should you vote for?
http://www.whoshouldyouvotefor.com/content/usdetails.htm

I was also going to post a link to the article titled "Barack Obama offers a Beautifully Packaged Lie" but the link has died, and I was going to post a link to a video, with text of Obama's speech in Berlin and a link to the interview of McCain with Outdoor Life magazine but I have lost those thinks. If you can find any of those, let me know.

Please take the time to vote this November.

The article takes a look at two different scenarios, if marijuana alone were legalized and if all street drugs were legalized, and how it would effect the economy and standards of living in the US.

"The Web's 10 Weirdest Social Networks
© Fast Company

Trying to meet people on MySpace or Facebook is like participating in one of those office gift exchanges: You have no idea what you're going to get. Witness the rise of niche social networks, where hamster enthusiasts, mustache lovers, even lonely farmers can find kindred spirits to commune with (and sometimes sleep with). New virtual cliques form every day, thanks to platforms like Ning that enable anyone to create an online network around any topic. Check out our list of the 10 weirdest social networks.

A slide show of what the Kim Morgan thinks are the best 10 Brad Pitt movies ever and her reasons why. Although she has some valid arguments, I still couldn't help but be a bit disappointed some of my personal favorites did not make the list. Did all of yours?

Now this is a funny little article about you guessed it, Crocs. The shoes everyone loves to hate. When I first read this article I thought it was funny and wanted to share it with you all, then changed my mind for reasons unknown. However, today I changed my mind once again after I went into the hardware store today and saw Croc cell phone holders that not only look like the shoes but you can buy those stupid little decoration things you can put in the holes. The madness must end!

An Art Exhibit

The exhibition's site:
Brooklyn Museum Exhibitions: Click! A Crowd-Curated Exhibition
June 27–August 10, 2008
2nd Floor

"Click! is a photography exhibition that invites Brooklyn Museum’s visitors, the online community, and the general public to participate in the exhibition process. Taking its inspiration from the critically acclaimed book The Wisdom of Crowds, in which New Yorker business and financial columnist James Surowiecki asserts that a diverse crowd is often wiser at making decisions than expert individuals, Click! explores whether Surowiecki’s premise can be applied to the visual arts—is a diverse crowd just as “wise” at evaluating art as the trained experts?"

The article I read on the exhibition:
Art or Not The Brooklyn Museum crowd-sources a photography exhibition.

Posted Wednesday, July 16, 2008
Click here to read a slide-show essay about the Brooklyn Museum's experiment in crowd-sourcing.
http://www.slate.com/id/2195378/?GT1=38001

A similar art experiment mentioned in the above article:
Most Wanted and Least Wanted Paintings
http://www.diaart.org/km/painting.html

I really wanted to talk about this article and exhibition when I first read it but was unable to. But I am bringing it to your attention now because it is still relevant and an interesting topic. And I was wondering about any of your opinions on the idea of art exhibitions being curated by the general public vs. curators, or anything else brought up by this post.
