I haven’t really posted much of late as I’ve hit a really busy patch at work and haven’t really had time.  Evenings have been spent recovering from a hard day in front of the computer.

However, I couldn’t let the day pass without a quick mention of  this story about a Japanese gentleman who has dropped everything to listen to his social conscience.  Initially he planned to try to persuade Japanese libraries to stock certain books on the environment and social issues, but because he received a negative response from many of them he took on the mantle himself.  He now distributes these books himself from… wait for it… his customized bicycle, complete with waterwheel-shaped bookshelf!

I’m sure his stock must get soggy quite quickly!  Still, it’s nice to see someone making the effort to promote a cause they feel passionately about – and the eccentric manner in which it’s done only makes it more interesting for the rest of us!

P.S.  I’ve been playing around with MS Dewey today.  It’s quite interesting, and seems to present me with some very relevant results to my searches, but bl**** h*** can that woman nag!! 😉  I’m glad she’s got a mute button!
