Stumbling upon all sorts of stuff

I had a rare moment of having time to ramble around the internet over the weekend. During the week I had downloaded the newly revamped Google Chrome browser to which I quickly became a convert - its fast even on dialup and very user friendly. I'd also had some reason, I can't remember what, to revisit stumble upon and this time got curious enough to try it. This led me on to Academic Earth with Gilbert Strang's wonderfully clear thoughts on linear algebra and a series of lectures on Ancient Greek History which I've duly favorited in Stumble upon http://www.stumbleupon.com/ and bookmarked in delicious http://delicious.com/dzyanna for later viewing. Digressions from these led me to look at Tedtalksdirector on Youtube, including a talk Jamais Cascio: Tools for building a better world on worldchanging.com which is a site that promotes the idea that we can indeed change the world for the better - did you know there are whole eco-village suburbs in places like LA? Or how about Michael Merzenich on re-wiring the brain? So the weekend left me feely very much enriched. I finished off by watching a new crime mystery series on RTV Spain http://www.rtve.es/television/. The web is my learning platform! (when I have time)
