bjork - just watched a special from 1997 on ABC (the .au one) about the album she was producing. Very funky music, and the pictures of Iceland were so beautiful. I'm still insanely jealous of my friend who go to Finland in 1998 and probably saw many things just like that. I'm must listen more closely to her music next time it comes on the radio.

books - I agree there needs to be a free bibliography solution, however, like advogato their needs to be a certification model to stop crap biblios filtering in. This is one of the reasons that sticks out as to why companies still charge lots of money for this plus the fact that there are an insane number of books published each year and it there is a linear relation to this in terms of cataloging. Some of the effort here should be pushed back to publishers and authors which in turn probably requires a distributed solution. Hmm, I better stop writing before this gets complex.

gnome-doc-list - the debate about the mouse buttons continues. On a related topic of gnome lists, which ones are worth joining?
