iPod: Perfect Technology. "The iPod, Apple's personal music player, is as close to 'perfect technology' as anything I've ever seen, "writes Lex van den Berghe in the Santa Cruz Sentinel. "It's functionally light years ahead of its nearest competitor, beautiful in its simple and clean design, and (true to Apple) so easy to use." [Apr 13] [Apple Hot News]

Solitude and the Fortresses of Youth. When we censor the art of teenagers, however disturbing, we deny their humanity in the name of preserving their innocence. By Michael Chabon.

Let teenagers languish, therefore, in their sense of isolation, without outlet or nourishment, bereft of the only thing that makes it all bearable: knowing that somebody else has felt the way that you feel, has faced it, run from it, rued it, lamented it and transformed it into art; has been there, and returned, and lived, for the only good reason we have: to tell the tale. How confident we shall be, once we have done this, of never encountering the ugliness again! How happy our children will be, and how brave, and how safe!
