. . . Check out another piece by today's Arts columnist, Aaron Belz, in last Sunday's Washington Post: "Thirty Illegal Moves in the Cloud-Shape Game."
. . . Comment's very favourite conference, Jubilee, has launched an extremely cool new site: www.jubilee.tv has high-quality videos of their 2009 plenary sessions, as teasers for their next Jubilee, coming February 19-21. Register now!
. . . Speaking of conferences, another reminder that Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa will be staging an exciting conference April 8-10, 2010, called Calvinism for the 21st Century. Register now to hear scholars "across the disciplines that provide a Calvinist / neo Calvinist engagement of the significant issues, movements, or systems of thought facing the Christian community or the broader culture at the beginning of the 21st century."
. . . Join Comment lifers and Cardus keeners as Bob Goudzwaard joins us in town at Redeemer University College on Feb 3 to talk about Hope in Troubled Time: A New Vision for the Global Economy. Respondents include our inestimable editor Gideon Strauss and Cardus Senior Fellow Jonathan Wellum.
. . . Ever wondered what Comment and Cardus folk talk about around the coffee machine? Get the P.G. version online at our shiny new ideas lab for informal experimentation: Cardus After Hours, www.cardusafterhours.com.
