Two items of great interest that I happened upon in the past twenty-four hours:
- Did you know that Covenant Theological Seminary (the denominational seminary of the Presbyterian Church in America) offers entire sets of lectures for several of their classes for free in mp3 format? With everything from Ancient & Medieval Church History to Youth Ministry, you can essentially sit in on whole classes from Covenant through your iPod. (So far, I have put three classes on mine.) The program is called “Covenant Worldwide.” What an opportunity! I honestly am so impressed that a seminary would essentially give away its bread and butter that I’m adding a permanent link on our blog to that web site. Perhaps adding a link isn’t that much, but I really hope that many take advantage of this.
- Did you know that Yahoo! now offers an interesting way to raise money for charitable causes with a search engine called GoodSearch? Essentially, you select a charity, and every internet search you make through GoodSearch earns that charity about $.01 (the money comes from advertisers, not you). A penny isn’t really a lot, but it obviously adds up if you have lots of people performing all their searches through that site. A very interesting concept, but I don’t know if it would tear me away from Google.
