    In July 2004, Barack Obama electrified the Democratic National Convention with an address that spoke to Americans across the political spectrum. Now, in The Audacity of Hope, Senator Obama calls for a different brand of politics: a politics for those weary of bitter partisanship and alienated by the "endless clash of armies" we see in Congress and on the campaign trail; a politics rooted in the faith, inclusiveness, and nobility of spirit at the heart of "our improbable experiment in democracy".

    "The only thing wrong with it..."

    ... was it is abridged. I would have liked to have heard everything, after having enjoyed this abridged version so much.

    So much of our human body is made up of salt that we'd be dead without it. The fine balance of nature, the trade of salt as a currency of many nations and empires, the theme of a popular Shakespearean play...Salt is best selling author Mark Kurlansky's story of the only rock we eat.

    Karen says: "More than SALT"
    "With a silly title like"
    Overall

    ... it is an amazingly good book. Much, much more than a mere NaCl, this is a sweeping history of man, from 4000BC to the present. But unlike so many other world histories, wars aren't the points by which the dots are connected; it's salt. While today it may seem mundane and ordinary, salt's fascinating importance throughout history is presented, with many colorful asides written and read beautifully.

    On November 15, 2004 in Washington, D.C., David Weinberger, former senior internet adviser to the Howard Dean presidential campaign, discussed how weblogs work & their value in gathering knowledge. He is now at Harvard University's Berkman Center for Internet & Society, where he is working on a book about how the digital age is changing the way information is organized & classified. First in a series.

    Victoria says: "Very Interesting"
    "Good intro into digital information orgazation"
    Overall

    David Weinberger's lecture is quite interesting, and speaks at a level easy for most people to follow. He contrasts past and present knowledge organization schemes, and explains how this is important for the Internet.
