"The Internet, social media, and Facebook – one person’s year without the Internet, reflections by another on the good side of social media. But – in another link – not if you’re multitasking. Especially if you think you can multitask. The power of little things like compliments and excuses. A literary review that had me laughing harder than anything I’ve read in a long time. And a fun short-film overview of the history of typography."

"As our major site redesign (granted, a redesign less visible from the blog) indicates, NovAntiqua is still moving forward, and we have some exciting things underway."

"As Mother’s Day approaches on Sunday (note!): Two takes on a world in which sex, gender, and reproduction are no longer assumed to have any relation. One presenting the risks of a made-to-order approach to baby-making and the response of Catholic social teaching. And one with a sexless, genderless approach to teaching kids about how babies are made . . . to order . . . in a world in which this commodification is increasingly a new norm. More gently, two of my favorite older posts for moms of little ones and those who care for them. And a sweet video reminder of the things that kids really appreciate about their moms."

"Cooking? It’s something our mothers . . . er, grandmothers . . . er, great-grandmothers did.* In other words, it’s been awhile since a lot of us had someone around to teach us how to chop an onion, figure out when the meat is done, crimp a piecrust, use a burner setting other than 'high,' or sauté anything (um, what exactly does sauté mean?)."

Loved Eric Bohnet's comment on this NRO Corner post:
"What is even worse about the current gang is that the dream of everybody having everything has largely been achieved by the very capitalist system they despise. Imagine going back to a socialist rally in 1911 and promising that in 100 years America would be a country where even the poorest members of society would have access to so much food that many of them would be struggling with obesity, houses with indoor plumbing, electric lights, and a new kind of oven that cooks food super-fast. They'd have telephones that they could carry around with them, access to a mail service that allowed them to send letters anywhere in the world instantly, and motion pictures in their homes. They could buy a miracle drug that cures infections for a 1/2 hour pay at a store that also sold a wide range of clothing, food, tools, and a bunch of things that hadn't even been invented yet. Where almost everyone owned an automobile that was far more safe, reliable, and comfortable than anything that had yet been imagined. Where poverty meant being at risk of having to temporarily do without some of these things, and maybe having to live in a high-crime neighborhood.

"They'd have driven you off for being insane, but their modern heirs are protesting the system that made it possible and urging the kinds of policies widely used by societies that still have trouble feeding their people despite having access to the technology developed here."
