[META] Some blogroll additions

leave a comment »

Two links are being added.

  • To the news section, I’m adding the Canadian news website National Observer, which has interesting longer articles analyzing Canadian events. Of their recent articles, I would recommend Lorimer Shenher’s “LGBTQ officers need to pick the right target”, which argues that LGBTQ police officers should step back and consider the import of the police, as an organization, to many queer people.
  • To the blog section, I’m adding Strange Company, a great blog that assembles links of interesting and odd things around the world, in the past and present, and takes the occasional longer look at particular events. This link, examining the history of one Reverend Griffiths who was something of a ghostbuster in 19th century Wales, is a good example of the latter category of post.

[META] Another blogroll update

Two bloggers, three blogs.

  • Ottawa-based writer ‘Nathan Smith’s Apostrophen examined the life of a gay fiction writer in the nation’s capital. His recent post looking at how much he earns, from the perspective of what he could afford to eat with it, speaks about the economics of fiction writing.
  • New York City-based writer Philip Turner has two blogs, Honourary Canadian describing his life as an expat and The Great Grey Bridge looking at his take on New York City. His recent photo post from the shores of the Hudson River is beautiful.

[META] Blogroll Additions

Two new blogs are on the blogroll!

  • First is
    The Signal
    , the Library of Congress’ digital preservation blog concerned with the archiving of digital information. There’s plenty of activity on this group blog and interesting stuff to read, like Mike Ashenfelder’s post describing the efforts of American public libraries to help ordinary Americans archive their lives.
  • Supernova Condensate is a great science blog owned by Livejournal’s now-deported . All sorts of fascinating space- and physics-related items are described at length, with photos, at this blog. The most recent post, describing the formation process of a remarkably symmetrical ice crystal in space, is as good a place to begin as any.
  • Go, read!
