Where In The World is Monica Hamburg?
Me Like the Internet is me liking the vacation until early April. So, it’s going to be a bit quiet over here. Though, I do have a posts or two keyed up to go up while I’m away.
If you really miss me (hey, a girl can dream), you can check out my humor blog – though that one is less informative, more deranged and generally NSFW. (Tempted, yet?) I have weekly posts keyed up on that blog – which proves that being funny is much easier than being smart.
RSS: If you simply come to this website to check to see when I have new content, consider subscribing (See “subscribe in a reader” with the orange button – it’s in the sidebar to the right, and about 5 inches above this sentence. Look right – there you go.) That way the content will come to you. If you don’t know an RSS from the FCC, I still love you, so here’s the Common Craft video to keep you up to snuff:
One Degree: Is a fantastic blog full of insight from some smart minds. The previous sentence notwithstanding, and, if the post I wrote last night in the wee hours makes any sense at all, I’ll have a piece about Indie Film on there in the next bit.

Save the Great Bear Rainforest
Some of you remember this cause from when I was working on the related “Bear Your Soul” contest.
Now, the campaign continues until March 31st so please consider sending a message to the government of British Columbia, urging them to keep their promise to concerned citizens in BC and around the world by visiting this page and signing the online petition.
The Great Bear Rainforest is the largest tract of intact coastal temperate rainforest left on Earth. It comprises over 30,000 square miles–about the size of Austria. It’s home to three kinds of bears (grizzly, black and the rare spirit bear), six million migratory birds, 3000 genetically distinct salmon stocks and many species of plants unique to the region.
Two years ago, the province of British Columbia committed to protecting this region under a new conservancy. All the stakeholders–the provincial government, logging companies, First Nations and environmentalists–agreed to a new approach to resource planning developed by an independent team of scientists, and committed to its implementation by March 31, 2009.
While some progress has been made, BC must still initiate a regional plan to ensure conservation of these critical ecosystems.

Have a lovely March & See you when I get back!
