July: Link Diary

Let’s first begin with my post on Its A Free World, I have few questions about CFLs that I would love to have answered from you. There are three questions in this tiny post (tiny from my standards :P) .

I started looking up tumblr blogs for a friend, I ended up with few nice cartoon blogs. Here is one: My Life in a Cube and Garfield minus Garfield. There’s more you can look up here.

I then hopped to Postsecret, and was intrigued to see new postcards there. Here are two new:

                                         Postcards via Postsecret

Anshul from Brainstuck.com sent me this flickr album of Marc John‘s Post-it drawings.

Here is a traveler, Matt Harding‘s dancing video. This guy gave up his job as game designer and went on to backpacking to 42 countries. He doesn’t dance great, yet, here is his fun video, where he dances with thousands of other people in exotic locales. The song in this video is Rabindra Nath Tagore’s Praan. This video is must watch.

Not all videos are happy as Matt Hardings. Here is one that tells you how buying a slave is cheaper than buying an Ipod in Haiti. Another news how 85% Egyptian men harass women.

And then, I went on to view some Rouxbe cooking videos. They have been around for long, but I am amazed at the clarity and simplicity of their videos. Rouxbe is now offering paid cooking classes on Web, you can view a sample here.

Finally, here is a blogger I found who dedicatedly, meticulously updates her weekly plans. Wow, nice way to be committed your goals. Next part of the Europe trip will be up soon!

    Phew! just finished all the links. The fav ones are : Garfield, Matts dance and the Slave video. Here in India too we have such human trading; but I guess in a much polished way. The children on the streets here are all part of a similar racket. Sad.

    Nice links..! will check that out 🙂

  11. 11 Poonam Sharma August 7, 2008 at 12:18 pm

    @Vimal: Yeah..saw what you were away for..meeting with God! 🙂 And saw THE picture too.

    Like you, I loved Matt’s dance. In India too child trafficking and selling happenes out of poverty. 😦

    @Joel: Let me know when you check them out. 🙂

    Regarding the Garfield link, I recently read that the creator of the site had reached an agreement with Jim Davis, creator of Garfield, to publish a book together.

    They will publish the cartoons, side by side – the edited, and then the original version for comparison.

    It’s great that Jim Davis is letting him do this – he could have possibly sued for copyright infringement, but instead saw the humour involved and is actually participating.

    Poonam: I didn’t know about this, Tom. Thanks for informing! I am looking forward to read such comparison of new and original comics. 🙂
