A Coffee, a Reminder, and Some Links Friday

A Coffee, a Reminder, and Some Links Friday

Photo Credit: Brida Anderson ©2009 (Flickr via Creative Commons) Hey-o, everyone! Another Friday is here, and in my neck of the woods it continues to be cold. But it’s winter, so really – why am I whining about it?

Now on Tuesday I announced I am giving away 8 copies of a very good book by Timothy Keller, and as of the writing of this post only four people have entered the draw. This means they’ll all be getting two copies of the book. No, seriously – it means there’s still time to enter the draw! I won’t be drawing names until Friday, February 14th, so click this link and enter for a chance to win!

I came across two good articles over at www.RelevantMagazine.com you may want to check out as well. Here is a snippet from each to whet your appetite:

- From Why It’s Time to Stop Facebook Lurking by Jesse Carey:

As a consumer experience, Facebook works perfectly. Like any good product, Facebook takes a task (keeping in touch through a community connection) and makes it easier (just scan their profile!). But when it comes to relationships, maybe it’s supposed to be hard. Maybe convenience and community are actually contradictory ideas.

- From Why We All Love Sherlock by Mack Hayden:

On the outside, he looks unredemptive—Sherlock's friends are forever fretting about how he'll come across to a public who doesn't know him like they do.

Because, for all his faults, he does have friends. And these are friends willing to look past the many things that make Sherlock a difficult person and see that he not only needs saving, but that he can be saved.

 Oh, and there’s a new Simon’s Cat video out, just in time for Valentine’s Day:

Happy Friday! (And thanks for reading!)
