If you like Mark Rothko’s paintings as much as I do, you’ll be happy to know that the Tate Modern (which houses many of his works, including the Seagram murals which I’ve sampled above) has created a website where you can take a panoramic look at their Rothko exhibit.

Esquire has a new column called “What the hell is wrong with people.” Based on the first entry (that I’ve seen, anyway) I think I’m going to like it. A lot.
Via OpenCulture I found this site called BigThink. Looks like lots of interesting podcasts.
Speaking of podcasts, I feel like I should be taking advantage of more. I spend 15 or 20 minutes each day listening to random music on my Zen on my way to work, and I could be using that time to, I don’t know, learn French or investigate Utilitarianism or something.
I upgraded this blog to WordPress 2.5 last night. While it doesn’t change the appearance to you, Joe Internet, the admin looks awfully spiffy. One little problem though: a lot of stuff doesn’t work. I can’t add URLs, for example; none of the pop-ups work. Good thing I know HTML, otherwise it’d be a little tricky to post.
