Who lives here ?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Towse @ 2:07 am

* * * Who lives here ? * * *‘s statement of purpose is “One’s room” shows us many things like the culture, religion and the way people live and how they think about their life…. Our ignorance and misunderstanding about people from other cultures, lifestyles and ways of thinking make it possible for mutual prejudice, hatred and war to exist. But if we could feel ourselves closer to the people from other countries,or if we make an effort to try to know the reality of other people’s lives and understand them, bad behavior like hurting or hating or killing will decrease gradually and ultimately disappear. This site will show you our unknown friends and their rooms from all over the world. Enlarge this project as broad as possible. Someday we can bring “real peace” to this world.

… or maybe they’re just scouting for their next robbery target.

Great site for snoops and voyeurs … and the people who want to bring “real peace” to this world.

Renaissance Alliance School Fundraiser

Filed under: Uncategorized — Towse @ 10:17 pm

This is a very cool idea … Renaissance Alliance School Fundraiser: “The Renaissance Alliance school is honored to offer for sale stunning images from 35 of the most prominent and honored photographers in the world, all of whom work regularly for National Geographic magazine. The money raised through these sales will be used to build a much-needed new schoolhouse and for supplies and other expenses. Currently, students are meeting in portable buildings; the plan is to build an environmentally friendly structure with rainwater collection and solar electric panels.”

Why do people give up weblogs?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Towse @ 7:17 pm

From luvly, Why do people give up weblogs?

A cogent synopsis of reasons why some ex-webloggers gave up their weblogs, including

“Everywhere I looked I saw the same features with which we’re all familiar: hopeful linkylurve, memes, indulgent/tiresome self-disclosure… the only distinguishing factors in most cases being strength and combination. I won’t make a sweeping statement about its value – at the very least it entertains, & that’s something. But to me, a person who isn’t looking to promote myself within it, the “blogosphere” (*CRINGE*) is overwhelmingly dull, and I suppose that made it quite easy to opt out.
