Weekend links: Bears!, William Gibson, Futbol

Posted by ron at 09:45 PM ET

The above items have absolutely nothing in common except for the fact I find them entertaining.

Author William Gibson's new book has been getting pretty good press, but the folks at Boing Boing calls this Washington Post interview one of the best they've read.

We have to admit that we're not big soccer fans but we can get behind the Homeless World Cup. Teams made up of homeless and formerly homeless from all over the world get a once in a lifetime opportunity to represent their country. According to organizers more than 70% of participants find homes, get off drugs. We bet that all of them make new friends and gain a lot of dignity. Inspiring.

Finally, from the duo who brought you Monkey Portraits.... Bears! These are probably not Colbert-approved.

An extra link this week. Our friends over at Spacing have expanded their blog into our second-favourite city, Montreal!

Reader comments:

Second favourite city? Boh! (to quote Stephen Fry...) What do you expect from a magazine that uses a preposition for a name? Come to Québec, shed your Anglo emotional armour for a bit, stop over-accessorizing, and come have some fun for once instead of nervously checking your Blackberries every 10 minutes... :P
