This is a really interesting article by Douglas Rushkoff about our current capitalist system and why we make the decisions we do even when we want to do something else. It's the kind of thing that gives you a lot to think about whether you agree with him or not.

On a completely different note this evening I saw From Russia with love at the cinema. I particularly wanted to see one of the earlier Bond films after being horrified by Moonraker. This film was so so much better. Despite the pervasive mysogeny in Bond films this one was mostly lacking. The women in it were all as in control of their lives as the men as opposed to Moonraker where they were ciphers who existed to sex up Bond and die terrified. One interesting thing was the villain, Robert Shaw's Grant doesn't say a word until almost the end and his silent stalking of Bond really builds him up. The gimmicky villains are better remembered but I think he might be one of the best.
