Lisbeth Salander

I just friended Lisbeth Salander on Facebook. Normally, this would not be noteworthy, other than the fact that Lisbeth is the fictional heroine of Stieg Larsson’s detective series The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire and the forthcoming Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. I just finished the second book and can’t wait for the third to come out. I studied at Handelshögskolan in Stockholm where the novels take place. Reading them takes me right back to those dark winter nights on Sveavägen. Maybe that’s why I want to be Lisbeth’s friend, if only on Facebook.

Hurry up and read them, because Hollywood just purchased the rights to the series.

The Digital Divide Between McCain And Obama…

There was a great NPR story the other day on the digital divide between McCain and ObamaMcCain has his RAZR phone, no Blackberry/smartphone, does not get onto the Internet, and does not send email – Obama on the other hand has multiple phones, is connected with his Blackberry, and has over a million friends on Facebook.  Does how a candidate embraces new technology provide insight into how they will deal with new situations, new generations, or new opportunities?  Or is this gadget geek reading too much into things?
