A wee while ago Noelle McCarthy, an Irish broadcaster and columnist for the Herald here in New Zealand, published a 200 words of nothingness in the newspaper. So now it’s my turn.
The aforementioned Noelle Mccarthy was on the radio this morning. She has a nice voice. She was talking to theauthor of a book about the mission to kill Osama Bin Laden which she said exposed the shady operations of the CIA. Sickeningly I really want to read it! >
One of the best books I ever read was Revolution Day: The Human Story of the War in Iraq by Rageh Ommar, the BBC’s man in baghdad who is from Somalia. It’s an awesome read if you can get it.
Lastly a little piece of interesting news is is due for release later this month. Many in the blind communtity including this author are very excited about it. In research studies blind participants have typed up to 23 words a minute in Grade 1 Braille. It sounds as if it’ll be a lot faster than the iPhone keyboard. People are predicting a HUGE hit and I can’t wait to try it.
