Are you an Urban Flâneur?

You are an urban flâneur if you live in an urban area (city, town, suburbs) and are observing things and pondering about what you saw as a reference to a larger concept.  For example,  when walking outside you may have noticed a building that strikes you as different. What message was the occupant (if a house) or architect conveying. Or, maybe you noticed an unusual sculpture or poignant graffiti. What was the person saying in this sculpture or graffiti.

If you would also like to do a guest blog entry, I would be interested in posting it. 

Send your observations to michaelamcadams@yahoo. com

I will try to post as many as possible.

Occupy tthe Internet! Oppose SOPA and PIPA

Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.

Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA.
The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. Please let them know how you feel. Sign this petition urging Congress to vote NO on PIPA and SOPA before it is too late,
