Hey! Did you see? Putin signed the Kyoto treaty yesterday! That means enough countries have ratified it for it to become binding! Pity the US pulled out, given they’re the world’s worst polluter, but it’s wonderful that the rest of the world’s moving on anyway. Great timing, too, we needed some good news.

The sun’s shining today, too. I’m going into town to hang out in caf?©s, go to the library, pay for my new sofa and hang up more posters inviting people to Thursday night’s electronic literature readings. You should come too, if you’re in Bergen. Thursday at 8pm, in Bergen Congress Centre, behind the cinema. Morten Skogly, Anne Bang-Steinsvik and Scott Rettberg will be reading.
