Fresh from an action packed weekend, I needed a little downtime, so Monday was dedicated to "internet research". I share with you my findings..
Ps. they are looking for volunteers for the exhibition. If you're interested, get in touch and I'll link you up.
* Rio+20 is happening in a few days, and their website has a breakdown of the discussion topics which you can vote on to recommend as top priority. I include this link not because I think this conference is going to make much difference (hey, Copenhagen!), but for the environmentalists and researchers out there, it gives a good indication of areas that need study and advocacy.
* Moving into writing, do read this delightful piece by Smriti Daniel about Charles Dickens visiting present day Sri Lanka. Love her writing!
* I debated whether or not to link to this article but decided to after all, as an example of completely non-constructive criticism and an equally juvenile response. Instead of debating the critic's (rather harsh) comments, the commentators resorted to foul language and personal attacks, thereby rendering the whole exercise pointless and open for ridicule. If you wonder why there is no thriving review culture in Sri Lanka, at least in English, here's why; the criticism is neither given nor taken in the kind of spirit that leads to self evaluation and improvement.
* The Celtics lost to the Heat on Sunday. I don't want to talk about it. BUT if you're a fan, you might like this article I found on Grantland titled Understanding Rondo. And just for fun, KG being KG. You can knock him down but you can't knock him out!
* If you're a photographer, especially into street and travel photography, this article has some good tips for you. Also consider buying this book, Lonely Planet's Guide to Travel Photography which has good reviews on Amazon.
* Speaking of photography, love love this album I found on facebook done by Life Times SL, breaking down LGBT stereotypes. The concept and photography are so creative and hats off to the production team. I wish more activism was approached like this.
* Batman fans, here's a treat for you: a series of epic posters for the upcoming movie.
That's all folks. Happy reading!
