Technology: The most recent version of Movabletype (3.31) has just been released. While the versioning would make it appear to be a small release, it actually adds some new and exciting features which will be of interest to many bloggers. Not the least of these features is native support for tagging. You can read about it and download if for free here.
Books: Phil Johnson has a long and interesting post on how he turns John MacArthur sermons into books. “It’s a long and exacting process, much more labor-intensive than simply writing a book from scratch would be. But if I wrote my own book, it would be nowhere as good.”
Sports: Matt Hall has a good reflection on the gross misconduct of Zinedine Zidane at the close of the World Cup. “There is little in American sports lore to compare with what happened on Sunday in a matter of seconds. Zidane, a legend in worldwide football, had just finished what was perhaps his best Cup showing of a prodigious career.”
