A friend of mine posted a link to this article on his facebook blog the other day, and I thought it was interesting. I share it with you, in case you find these things interesting as well. It's basically about consumerism and the superfastspreading of companies like Starbucks and McDonalds, and how places that start out as totally-hip-and-unique-hot-spots sell out and become mass-marketed one-on-every-corner soul suckers. And it's all because the guy who started the dreaded Starbucks is sad about it.
In other news, JobSearch2007 is underway. I'm trying to figure out how it's all going to work with this whole Going To Israel thing (oh yeah, I'm going to Israel this summer--thanks to Birthright Israel.), and I may end up both jobless and homeless in July, but I'm hoping something will turn up. 'Cause jobless and homeless wouldn't be that fun. Or would it? I'm going with "no."
More on this, and other things, later.
