If anyone out there is looking to donate to helping out Haiti, please take a look at HAITI & INTERNATIONAL APPEAL: By The Emergency Response Team (ERT SAR).
This is my brother’s emergency response team, and they’re looking for donations to help fund their trip to Haiti in order to deliver medical aid, search and rescue services, and help set up temporary aid sites, etc. They do on-the-ground work, and often pay out of their own pockets to do so.
If you’d like to check them out, their website is at: http://www.ertsarhq.webs.com/ You can take a look at some videos and images of their past work in Sri Lanka, Pakistan and elsewhere.
I am back at work after a two week hiatus and it is honestly the strangest thing ever. I am actually feeling all introspective and philosophical about the entire concept of working for a living.
I mean, what’s that about? What kind of crazy post-industrial world do we live in? There’s over a hundred people in my building in a company of over 16 000 people and somehow the company makes enough money to pay us all, despite not actually producing tangible goods.
The strangeness of everyday life.
