Patrick Rothfuss is running his annual Worldbuilders fundraiser for Heifer International. This is my second-favorite fundraiser, right after Desert Bus for Hope. Worldbuilders has actually been running for a while, but it doesn’t end until the 13th, so take a look if you’re interested. In related news, he’s asked for the word to be spread regarding a signed Brett Favre jersey that was donated, since it’s a bit off the wall for the sorts of things usually given away at Worldbuilders. To be honest I don’t actually know who Brett Favre is – my interest in football is generally limited to the occasional Superbowl commercial – but I gather he’s popular or something.
A group in Canada enjoys charity status, despite their primary goal being to “cure” homosexuals. The good news is that a number of Canadian politicians are working to remove said status.

See, the problem with Lifehacker is that they put up a ton of posts and most of them are interesting – every once in a while I just have to say, “Well, hundred interesting Lifehacker items, I’m just not going to get around to you. Sorry.” This is actually why I stopped watching BoingBoing. It’s like Lifehacker on crack.

Not a link, but a quote from my friend Blake H.: “Life is a series of newspaper clippings strung together by the time it takes to read them. “ He pretty much just popped that out while we were chatting, in between linking me music on Youtube and gently chiding me for my soft rock addiction.
Writing Progress (Derelict): Er, none today. But I wrote a blog post! Yay me!
Current Music: Nothing, I’m on my laptop and left my headphones in my desktop. But I listened to a bunch of stuff on Pandora earlier, so it’s all good.
