Monday Media Blitz

I have to admit it: there are things I'd love to write about but chances are that a lot of those things have already been written by a mind more brilliant than my own.

In my daily search for knowledge and understanding I often come across articles, videos, blogs and other forms of media that move me in some way. I'm overwhelmed by a deluge of good information and I just hate to see it all go to waste. So I've started this page in an effort to catalog all this media, and also so that I can share it with the world. Because, come on, the world needs to know.

If anybody feels there's something I've missed and they'd like to see contributed to the Monday Media Blitz, please feel free to add a link via comment.

Dorothy Parker
I've been told by a few informative friends that if I ever had a former life I must have been Dorothy Parker. Well, I wish they were correct.
