I’ve always enjoyed Naomi Klein and what she writes. She was recently on Colbert Report here and thought this was a great article on the current financial crisis.

I’m just starting to read around the Jesus Manifesto site a little bit. I thought these two satire article were pretty hilarious. Hey, I care about those poor people too, and group of white men around the age of thirty challenge everything.

Heather Yourex made a short video about our stay in Swaziland for us. She was a reporter for Global in Calgary and took off for 6 months to work with Hands at Work. You can check out her Global blog here.

A big arts festival called Buit Blanche just finished in Toronto. A group set up Pong on the buildings using the lights. Brilliant! I think we are going next year.

I am on a one month trial of a Blackberry for the month of October. I may switch over and cancel my landline and get Rachel a more permanent cell phone, but we’ll see how this month goes. The Blackberry is making strides in the mobile market, and I would pick the Blackberry over the IPhone in a heart beat, mostly based on having a keyboard instead of touch screen. However, I sort of would like to try out the Google Phone, because it is the Iphone meets the Blackberry, before I make any decisions.

    Jonathan – a friend of mine had two blackberries with two plans and wanted to get rid of it, so before he did i just am taking over his second phone for a month to try it out…so not a corporate thing.
