#1. July 13, 2005
Reading the news, I was struck by an article about blogging. It was about honesty in blogging, and how much is too much.
I think it was right-on when it suggested that the current crop of soul-baring high-school and college blog entries is likely to come back to haunt a future politician, job applicant, med school applicant or what have you.
Be careful what you publish. The Internet has a life (and a cache) of its own.
See ya on the Net,

#2. Getting Out of Debt
Did you know that trying to pay off your high interest
rate debt first can be the SLOWEST way to get out of debt?

Rembrandt Printable (** for premium members only)
Next year is the 400th anniversary of Rembrandt’s birth on July 15, 1606. Because Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn is revered as Holland’s greatest and most prolific baroque artist, Dutch museums are already starting to celebrate. Rembrandt is credited with 600 paintings, 300 etchings and 1400 drawings. Although experts argue that some of these were actually done by Rembrandt’s apprentices, that’s still a lot of art.
Artchive: One Man Show: Rembrandt
Mark Harden’s Artchive exhibits “seven of the master’s greatest works in a virtual gallery setting. Be sure to zoom in for the level of detail required for a true appreciation of these masterpieces.” A simple and intuitive interface makes this gallery a delight. While you’re here, be sure to mouse around the other galleries (especially The Sculpture Garden, Goya, and The First Impressionist Exhibition, 1874) and Juxtapositions (a collection of art critiques and additional exhibits.)
Rembrandt House Museum
I didn’t find the virtual room-by-room museum tour very compelling, but fortunately I checked out the Rembrandt section before I left, because it’s a winner. To enter, click on the olive green Rembrandt icon in the horizontal menu header. You’ll be rewarded with an interactive Rembrandt time line, annotated tour of famous works, and a FAQ that will lead you to a kids section (click on the school link in the first answer.) Although the kids section opens with an error, you can still visit the Rembrandt quiz and three interactive games.
Rembrandt Research Project
In 1968, a team of art historians undertook to catalog and analyze Rembrandt’s entire body of work. This website is part of that Rembrandt Research Project. Yes, there are minor grammatical errors here, but keep in mind these historians are not native English speakers. My favorite clicks are found in Rembrandt Multimedia, where you can view very short QuickTime videos about four of Rembrandt’s most famous paintings.
