In the Absence of Something Interesting...

It's Monday, and I really doubt I'm going to get round to writing anything worth reading tonight, so instead, here is some miscellaneous stuff that is worth checking out....

The Internet Monk was actually the inspiration for me to save my time writing stuff no one cares about, and instead disperse links into the wider reaches of the internet (along with other advice contained in this post).

This map combines my interest in all things gangsta, and my interest in all things to do with cartography into one unified and entertaining whole.

On a more serious note, Of First Importance is a quote-blog that I enjoy checking regularly, and often has some real gems. In particular, I thought today's quote was an interesting, and encouraging take on something easily brushed over.

The movie End of the Spear, opened in New Zealand this week. It is about the events surrounding the death of missionaries Jim Elliot, Nate Saint and others in the Ecuador jungle. It's a movie I am very much looking forward to seeing. It got reviewed at Christianity Today, which also has links to what other people are saying about it.

I close with a terrible surveying-come-blogging joke I just thought up now: If a chain consists of 100 links, shouldn't blogs with massive blogrolls operate in chains?
