Libations

Ah, summertime. Time to indulge in refreshments. (Blame the heat.)

Cork'd is a clever idea. It's a online wine community. You can set up a journal tracking the wines you've tasted, note how you rated them, place wines on your wishlist and discover which of your friends' wine cellars houses you should raid invite yourself over to. A great place for wine aficionados to meet, as well as school the unlearned grape-curious, like me. Sweet. (...with an oaky finish.)

Bottlenotes. The Netflix business model applied to wines.

If you are all alone with your glass of wine, you should amuse yourself with an issue of the new beverage-centric publication, Imbibe. I picked up an issue, and I have to say that my interest is piqued. The magazine incorporates a variety of articles on culture, travel, design, environmental sustainability, recipes, all woven together by a common focal point: the beverage. A great thing about the magazine is that it is obsessively informative and yet, not pretentious. It's also surprisingly light on advertisements. Perfect for beach reading.

DIY finger puppet. I remember doing that. I just never took photos...I mean...I never did that.

I found out about Eugene Mirman's website years ago. Then I lost track of it. This weekend, I stumbled across it in some hyperlink rabbit hole. I'm loving the new songs and the old favorites...all sung by a creepy photograph. Oh, and I just noticed that he's added other work on the site as well. Hmm. Maybe after one more song?...

Pop Bios (without the boring bits). My picks: Madge & Robbie.

I signed this petition, along with 250,000 others so far. This petiton will be delivered to Congress before the House of Representatives votes next week. When you sign, you'll be kept informed of the next steps we can take to keep the heat on Congress.

Snopes.com, which monitors various causes that circulate on the Internet, explained:

Simply put, network neutrality means that no web site's traffic has precedence over any other's...Whether a user searches for recipes using Google, reads an article on snopes.com, or looks at a friend's MySpace profile, all of that data is treated equally and delivered from the originating web site to the user's web browser with the same priority. In recent months, however, some of the telephone and cable companies that control the telecommunications networks over which Internet data flows have floated the idea of creating the electronic equivalent of a paid carpool lane.

If companies like AT&T have their way, Web sites ranging from Google to eBay to iTunes either pay protection money to get into the "fast lane" or risk opening slowly on your computer. We can't let the Internet—this incredible medium which has been such a revolutionary force for democratic participation, economic innovation, and free speech—become captive to large corporations.

Politicians don't think we are paying attention to this issue. Together, we do care about preserving the free and open Internet.

Please sign this petition letting your member of Congress know you support preserving Internet freedom. Click here.
