Inna pointed out this report on research into testosterone. The findings: single men have more, it can be triggered just by talking to a woman, it reduces stress and the women in the experiments could spot which men were testosteroned-up.

Look Around You on DVD

This is my Thing Of The Month. The hilarious comedy series is essential viewing if you have any affection for the Open University programmes or the BBC Micro and has probably provoked more belly laughs than anything on TV in the last year. It’s a bit of a pain to pay full price for a short DVD, but the extras (Pages from Ceefax, a Test Card with appropriate guitar music…) are, like the series itself, made with love.

Dan brought my attention to this article on how technology is changing the face of political activism. An example is afghan women hiding video cams in their burkas to film human rights abuses. It mentions the anti-war documentary film “We interrupt this empire” which is not online but which I highly, highly recommend if you get the chance to see. Apparently some of the linked footage is very disturbing, so watch where you click.
