Remember the other day when I said Eric could go on about gender differences? Well, he did:
Entangled Continua >> Realistic Portrayal Through Gender Tendencies
And just to throw some thoughts on world building on top of that:
SF Signal: MIND MELD: Worldbuilding
A link that Eric surely will be interested in.
Had dinner with the portion of Eric’s family that lives here last night. Played some Wii games, which is my first experience with the console. Fun, but not the kind of thing I’d own. Mark made barbeque, which really is about as good as what I had in Omaha, minus the really strong beer. The girls weren’t too nutso, but hey, there was a Wii to play with.
Today, we’re supposed to game with Chris. It’s only 5pm where he is currently, so I’m not sure why Eric told me that we’d be doing this at 6am. Not that I wouldn’t be up anyway. Still. I need to get some coffee into me. Maybe if we really do game today (I’m the DM), I can get Eric to go out to Sunday disc. I’m going to need the exercise.
A couple other interesting bits this morning:
Literacy Debate – Online, R U Really Reading? – Series – NYTimes.com:
Some traditionalists warn that digital reading is the intellectual equivalent of empty calories.
I love reading this type of thing online. Mmm… Empty NYT calories…
PBS has the documentary FAT: What No One Is Telling You up on their site. They touch on the gut brain a little in part 7.
