Medieval rockstar

The last page of a medieval book is usually a protective flyleaf, which is positioned between the actual text and the bookbinding. It was usually left blank and it therefore often filled up with pen trials, notes, doodles, or drawings. This addition I encountered today and it is not what you’d expect: a full-on drawing of a maiden playing the lute, which she holds just like a guitar. A peaceful smile shines on her face. I love this rockstar lady, so unexpectedly positioned at the end of the book, trying to catch the reader’s attention as he is closing it.

Dear FCC

The Internet is important to me because, I use it a lot. And so does everyone else. This is one system that if you muck up, there are going to be EXTREMELY MAJOR consequences.

Now, in this world, do we need the big companies to get bigger? The rich to get richer? The cultures to become more monotone? Because that’s what will happen if we shut out the voices of the minorities, of the little guys, of the poor and the obscure. Currently, the internet does a fantastic job of giving these people voices and opportunities, and thereby encouraging creativity, innovation and diversity across the ENTIRE WORLD. Don’t mess that up. Please.

What does this mean?

That, my friend, is exactly the question you have to ask.

It means that this is one of the best ways to pile up rocks and not have them fall down for a long time.
