Joshua Bell is one of the world’s greatest violinists. His instrument of choice is a multimillion-dollar Stradivarius. If he played it for spare change, incognito, outside a bustling Metro stop in Washington, would anyone notice? [/digg]

It’s a long article, but well worth the read. Unfortunately, things don’t look good for humanity. On the plus side, maybe no one will notice (or care) when we’re gone.

    Hey man!I saw that article a day or two ago. It’s crazy, but I think it doesn’t really explain what’s going on. A friend pointed me at a little work of literature called The Society of the Spectacle. It explains something that is a lot more alarming than global warming. it out!
