Sunday Post 411


The Olympic opening ceremonies are tonight! Is anyone else excited? I started watching the rowing competition last night. Four hours of rowing! I had it on in the background mostly but there were some exciting races.      

This week in walking tours we have some backstreets in the rain.            



I'm liking the idea of sharing a tweet occasionally to generate discussion.

My Star Trek watch a thon continues and I am slowly making my way through the first season. I saw in the comments last week that several others are watching as well or are fans. Any favorite episodes? I'm kind of keeping track as I watch which ones I like. As for the fridge- I'm using a miniature fridge to keep things cool, but... the new one can't arrive quick enough!!!     

As many of you know Roberta over at Offbeat YA had her Twitter account suspended after she got hacked. She has a new account now but it really got me thinking how at the mercy of the social media companies we are. Or Twitter anyway. She had very little recourse and considering the audience and the rebuilding she has to do- through no fault of her own- I don't get it. Why can't Twitter have a policy that addresses legit concerns?   

Okay walking tours this week. First is a giant cat (virtual!) in Shinjuku and then we have a rather cyberpunk-ish look at Seoul in South Korea.
