Quick pondering on my greenness

In the environment I am currently in, I often wonder what kind of a role I could have, in this Behemoth, in the corporate social responsibility realm. (Putting aside that CSR is more justification than change, etc.) For some strange reason, I haven’t determined yet whether the management would be willing to discriminate between ‘an […]

Audience Relocation: a Mammalian Diving Reflex thingamer

I’ve been wanting to blog this, but I’m going to just cop out and half-blog this. Last month, I was fortunate enough to round up a couple of friends to go with me to the Mammalian Diving Reflex’s latest Diplomatic Immunities performance, entitled Audience Relocation. I was glad to be able to do this before […]

Medium nostalgia

It’s been a hectic week – I’ve been running around learning as fast and hard as I can about super 8 filmmaking while doing my usual sleep-commute-work-commute-eat-BSG routine this week. It’s been one breakthrough after another, and though I had a bit of a downer day yesterday when I got some discouraging (but extremely valuable) […]

Tapping the innervoice

Over the past few days, I’ve had the distinct feeling that the year is coming full circle. The end of the year is a great time to reflect on a number of things (and 5am is as good a time as any to do it), like: a year spent in Toronto my most intense year, […]

A Middle Way in using ICTs for Development

My SCD 401 paper (the deadline for which was extended by two days – which means I can spend next weekend not sleeping and pounding out the pages) is by no means the first time I am grappling with the question of ICTs (information and communication technologies). Indeed, some of you (i.e. Richard) may recall […]

Food is love

I have a friend, Mia, on Livejournal, who blogs about food all the time. I think I am going to have my one post that just talks about food to make up for all this time I haven’t talked about it. I have no pictures to share, alas, although Richard might have some from meals […]

What I was doing while I was flunking out of NaBloPoMo

So, I was kindly informed yesterday that I’m out of NaBloPoMo. Considering I’d skipped a couple of posts last week, I suppose it was overdue. Well, boo. What was I doing when I wasn’t posting in my blog as much as I said I would? Why, I thought you would never ask. Friday, October 10 […]

IT in Community Economic Development – A Start

In September, I started taking a course by distance education from my university while I’m in Toronto working. I’m coming up on the final paper for the course, which is called [tag]Sustainable Community Development[/tag] 401, Concepts, Techniques, and Principles for CED Practice. It’s a survey course intended to give an overview of what it’s like […]

Turning the wheel to emptiness

A few months ago, I said to myself after having finished the book “Buddhism in Daily Life” by Richard Causton that I was going to commit myself to not just reading Buddhist books or talking about Buddhism but to actually give practicing it a try. I’d be lying if I said I made a terribly […]


Via Sarah Pullman, this informative yet potentially depressing article about pesticides from the UK caught my eye. As a consumer of organic produce, I think the crowd likes to think that eating food with less or fewer pesticides is supposed to prevent or lessen the presence of these things in our bodies. This article questions […]
