Some mornings I find lots of stuff all at once. In the last ten minutes, I came across Query Letters, a blog consisting of plot summaries for movie proposals, supposedly (and possibly) posted by someone in Hollywood who has the honour of reading all these proposals. Thankfully she only posts the one-paragraph version of the plots, which makes for a fun, quick read. Before that, I found Susan Herzog’s lovely annotated list of essays and blog posts about academics who use blogs in their teaching. Since we’re still feeling rather French, Scott sent me a link to the issue of Magazine Litteraire where Umberto Eco enthusases over the hypertextual era we’re entering, and I found a page of links to e-lit (anno 2000), some of which is in French.

Now it’s time for brunch!
