A La Carte (2/9)

A La Carte is running a little bit late today because I was recording a podcast. Busy day! Stay tuned a few minutes from now and I’ll also be posting an interview with John MacArthur.

Don’t Call it a Comeback - The Jude 3 Project has the first review I’ve seen of the book I contributed to. “Don’t Call it a Comeback is a uniquely accessible and entertaining theology text. That’s right, it is probably the theology text with the overall coolest title in the history of Christian publishing!”

Behind the Wheel - Andree Seu: “My son who lives in the heart of Philly says it’s no good now with everybody packing a cell phone and moving their lips as they walk down the street alone: ‘You can’t tell who the crazies are anymore.’”

Custom Domain Suffixes - This article deals with a new development on the Web and one that actually has very far-reaching implications. “The pillar of the basic Web address - the trusty .com domain - is about to face vast new competition that will dramatically transform the Web as we know it. New Web sites, with more subject-specific, sometimes controversial suffixes, will soon populate the online galaxy, such as .eco, .love, .god, .sport, .gay or .kurd.”

A New Kind of False Intimacy - This blogger suggests that Facebook offers us a new kind of false intimacy.

Please Don’t Use Google! - Andy Unedited wants writers to stop using Google. “Why should writers and speakers stop using Google as a supposed source of statistical authority? Much like using dictionary definitions…” You’ll have to click the link to read his reasons.
