The Random and Sad Interwebs

I get google alert emails everytime "un-scripted" pops up on the web, that way I can track who might be out there writing about The Un-Scripted Theater Company. I get a lot of random links though from it as "un-scripted" misspelled with a hyphen has come more and more into regular usage. There's a woman who has it spelled that way in the title of her blog, so I get links to it almost everytime she posts. Occasionally I read them as they are sometimes interesting. She's young and studying in Spain right now. It's a very... sex positive blog, but I tend not to read those posts. They're not overly graphic or erotic or anything, I just don't really need to know the details of this complete stranger's sex life. I mention all that just to explain why I'm not linking to this person's blog from this post.

The point is, yesterday she posted a very heartfelt sorrowful note about finding out her cousin had been murdered in New Orleans. Then I saw this on the front page of the SFGate website this morning: S.F. activist slain in New Orleans robbery. It's the same girl, the blogger's cousin, and a very sad story, and a very small interweb world.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
