A couple of my friends are maintaining blogs that you might want to check out:
At Q0nd0r W3ary, my good friend Ivo writes about everything that ignites his enthusiasm, with an emphasis on books and music. His mind is a fascinating thing: always ready to examine everything intensely and seriously, while often looking at things in a way that is quite different from mine.
My old and dear friend Julian is keeping his blog in German; but if you happen to speak that language, check it out. He’s currently writing about his experiences working as an intern for the Linkspartei in Berlin; I’m hoping that he will keep on writing once he’s done there. Julian and I have been fighting, arguing and agreeing over everything from socialist theory to Battlestar Galactica for many years now, and I’ve always enjoyed his thoughts – even when I don’t agree with them.
