Impressions and Expressions of Ijon
Kinnblog is so Sloppy|
בבלוג החצי-פרסומי וחצי-מענין של הוצאות כנרת זמורה-ביתן דביר יש המון שגיאות (כתיב, הגהה, פיסוק, תעתיק), ולא מעט טעויות של ממש. בממוצע, יוצא לי להתרגז עד כדי שאטרח לתקן אותם בערך אחת לחמש רשימות. היום שוב
fixed broken link.

(אני מניח שזה כחלק מהדגמת חשיבות בדיקת הקישוריות בתהליך ההגהה המקוונת) הלינק כאן
. אוסיף גם שבעברית (היה) נהוג (לפחות) לכנות את המדליה 'לב הארגמן'.

הוספתי עוד הגיג משלי
קראתי את הספר באנגלית - אחרי שראיתי את הסדרה בטלוויזיה. עדיף היה ללכת על השם "אחים לנשק" - גם יותר עקבי וגם יותר נכון.
Because you might know, a quick question -
Irad Malkin of TAU is coming to speak about Rhodes, Naukratis, and trade networks. Should I be trying earnestly to plead my way out of the last half of linguistics tutorial in order to attend?
Well, more a question of what you know about him as a speaker. The topic is intriguing enough that I'll probably try anyway, but I should know whether to use Bambi-eyes (or their prose equivalent, indeed), if he's particularly engaging.

The short answer is "yes!". The less short answer is that he's a pleasure to listen to: a fluent, entertaining, and charismatic speaker, who also knows his field very well.
I've audited a couple of lessons of his Greek Religion course, but sadly couldn't take a whole course with him yet.
Also, there's a book of his ("The Returns of Odysseus") which I own but have not yet read, and which received much acclaim, if memory serves.
Do share your impression! When is it?
It was the 12th, I think, and it was sort of intimidating because his talk opened with a sociological grounding of his topic (trade networks in terms of a rethinking of Mediterranean relationships through network-theory). I got lost in all the names of French sociologists and the occasional word or five in French, and then it was much better once he started talking about Rhodes and Naukratis themselves...
More thoughts later, though they seem to be fading under German. I am glad I went, though; thanks for the push.

You should have a look at restaurant menus in India. You really should. Especially italian restaurants.
