More Readings

Found an article on Information, Globalization, and Capital by Canadian Stephen Downes.

Here's an excerpt:
Neither capitalism not globalism are inherently bad. But both must be regulated by the rule of law.

It's a chore for good reason- google indexes everything. And indexing = bad news when potential employers google you... and they do.

But that is not a big deal...

You're coming to Queen's next year? Are you there now? It's not a bad little place to go for lawyer school.

Judging by your profile bio there, you seem to be the typical Queen's student... idealistic and enthusiastic.

I am somewhat of an atypical Queen's student (at least not stereotypical anyway). But you will quite enjoy the political leanings of most of the faculty.

I must say that you seem quite ambitious about this. A few words of unsolicited advice (the best kind if you ask me): you need not prepare for law school. The exams in December do not count. Spend this summer having lots and lots of fun.
#2. When you do buy a laptop, ensure it has wireless internet access.

Allow me to second Scott's advice.

About Googling -- that's a shame, that that's why you changed it, Scott. I really liked your old layout. The new one's more... generic.

The way I see it, if an employer gets scared off by my comments, I probably wouldn't have liked working for him or her anyway. ;-)
