Here and there

Blogger is now offering AdSense to bloggers where they can get paid for allowing advertisements to be shown on their website that pertain to the topic of their posts. I wonder how it's going to change the medium of blogging - if people will become less personal and start writing more about what they think will generate profit for themselves. I guess I'll have to wait until someone on my blogroll joins the program and then see if their writing has transformed in any way.

I came across a great post the other day about how the church is being relevant in culture. Tim from challies.com posed the question, "How Relevant Is Too Relevant?" Even though he wrote it pretty quickly, I thought it still hit on a lot of good points.

And in other news, Vanity Fair will be theatres on September 1. I had to read the book for my Lit class and because it was so huge, I kept reminding myself that the movie was coming out soon. Now it's just a week away! I've heard mixed opinions on Reese Witherspoon's performance of Becky Sharp, but as I was reading the book, I could picture her in the role. It's great to see a recent movie adaptation of a novel from 19th century England. I hope this trend continues.

Well, I should be off to practise my Greek alphabet. I've got most of the letters memorized but none pronounced correctly. It turns out that some of the ones I've learned from math, chemistry or physics weren't said the way they should have been. One of my friends told me that pi (3.14159..) is actually pronounced pee rather than pie. But I don't think that would fly too well with junior high boys.
