Inspiration for a cloudy Friday

Here are some inspiring stories I've come across today.

Local communities are taking direct action to protect asylum seekers

A New York apartment turns out to be a giant puzzle box, thanks to an ingenious architect

Engagement 101 have invited various community moderators from Reed Business Information to try a "chogging" (chat/liveblogging) experiment today - you can head on over and ask them a question, or share a picture of a tractor or a pilot's moustache, here.

Tim Ferriss, he of the infamous Four-Hour Work Week, has thoughtfully provided an insider's guide to Tokyo on the cheap (Part 1 and Part 2) - some day I'll get there and it will be AWESOME.

And that link came courtesy of the fabulous Gala Darling, an inspiring writer on her own creative journey from NZ to Melbourne to NYC and beyond. Now that I'm planting myself in UK soil, I love following other people's travels.

You sound very busy even on a cloudy day.
That article about the Fifth Avenue "giant puzzle box" is amazing! What a cool concept.
since I didn't find an email link or contact form anywhere on your site I try to reach you through this.
It's about a Bookcrossing bookring you took part in while you were still in Australia. In July 2007 you wrote a journal entry saying you had received it, but since then nothing has been heard of it (and of you) again.
Now if this was just any normal book, I would have just shrugged and let it go. But this was a collaborative journal, made by various bookcrossers and I really hope you can tell me what became of it. Even if it got lost or you left it somewhere I'd just like to know.
I tried to reach you by PM on Bookcrossing, but it seems they don't go through. I'd appreciate it, if you could get back to me on this.

BTW, here's the link to the journal in question:
42 Things Journal
Thanks for your good wishes, I'm glad you've enjoyed my blog. I like reading yours as well.

I've enjoyed studying my MA journalism course, just have to find a job now!
