Three quick links, all fantastic in their own way:

First, some of the guys from the Girl Skateboards Art Dump (including friend and collaborator Tony Larson) have a cool thing going called the Art Dump Photoblog. Soon to be a permanent link in the sidebar, but bookmark it now. The creativity and good work coming out of those guys is equal parts mind blowing and inspiring.

Second, a company called Zenph Studios has developed a way to take old recordings and play them on a modern piano, duplicating the experience of seeing the pianist in the flesh. Their first target? None other than Bach's "Goldberg Variations" as played by Glenn Gould.

I've got so many thoughts on this is that I don't know where to start. It's really an entirely new idea, an entirely new way to look at technology and how it might enrich the creative and artistic world. Fairly amazing.

Third, here's an interesting article from the New Yorker about dueling. Well worth reading for the kind of historical perspective that can only come through purely human stories.

More later.

you said to let you know if ever I saw a terrible spelling error that appeared on a site that should know better:

check out the word resources in the third paragraph (and I don't know, maybe they'll have fixed it by the time you see this, but I hope not.)
