Thoughty Thursday: Things that made me go hmmmm on the interwebz, Feb 22-28, 2015

Sadness of the week: Leonard Nimoy’s death. The New York Times.

What Mr. Nimoy taught Tobias Buckell.

Getting grief right. The New York Times.

A friend posted a lovely little bit from Desiderata. I wanted to share the whole piece with you, so here it is:


The pink kitchen that got lost in time. Little things.

19 creepily gorgeous abandoned places in Canada. Buzzfeed.

Would any of these designs be feasible? Cool? Yes. Gizmodo.

Do we really want to know if we’re alone in the universe? The Washington Post.

Bill C-51 is Canada’s anti-terrorist legislation. This piece on CBC’s The Current is an interesting listen. Critics sound out, including professor of literature, Allan Weiss, who discusses the dystopian implications.

What the Oscars can teach us about the craft of being good. Fusion.


Empowering women means empowering humanity. The UN Women channel on YouTube.

  1. R.I.P Leonard Nimoy. I wonder how many of your readers got the connection between Leonard Nimoy and the Desiderata post at first glance. For anyone interested it was turned into a hit in the UK by Les Crane and is available on Youtube. A really good record.

    • My parents had that 45 when I was a kid. I listened to it endlessly. Probably why I have such an attachment to Desiderata. If it’s on YouTube, I need to check that out. The record is long gone. Thanks, David.
