here is a fascinating NY Times magazine article about the forthcoming publication of Carl Jung's Red Book, a collection of his innermost dreams written in beautiful script and highly detailed drawings: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/20/magazine/20jung-t.html
I'm chipping away at Joseph Campbell's The Power of Myth, whose work seems to dovetail nicely with Jung's idea of a collective unconscious.
i definitely plan on visiting the Red Book when it's on tour at the Rubin Museum!

here's a news story about Google launching Chrome, an OS designed to challenge Windows' dominance. Chrome was designed more for netbooks, or mini laptops, and uses an open source protocol, allowing users to design there own OS, and not rely on the Windows package deal.
so, in a world filled with tributes to Michael Jackson at the moment, i thought i would add this one, oft-overlooked homage. This is a video of Corey Feldman on Evening at the Improv, performing (lipsynching and dancing) to a song he wrote for Dream a Little Dream (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097236/)
here's an article discussing wikipedia's decision to block Scientologist servers and members from editing articles related to scientology. this seems a little strange to me, as one of the reasons given for the ban is: 3.0) This longstanding dispute is a struggle between two rival factions: admirers of Scientology and critics of Scientology.
so why are only scientologists blocked? why not lock the article so no one can edit it?
i can't believe i'm defending scientology. this must be how the ACLU feels....
