2012 will be a fun year for those of us in North America as we Canadians celebrate our military victory over the U.S. in the War of 1812 by arguing with Americans who inexplicably believe that they won it. "For a comprehensive list of resources and events, be sure to visit, the official site of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, produced by the Government of Canada. Resources also include a free downloadable iPhone App, as well as mobile versions of the site for Blackberry and other mobile platform users." Today: Total:66 [Comment] [Direct Link]

Canada's Got Treasure
Various AuthorsVarious authors, Virtual MuseumVirtual Museum,

"Canada's Got Treasure" is an interesting an innovative Virtual Museum initiative. The idea is to have Canadians photograph or video the country's "treasures" and upload them to YouTube and Flickr, and the Virtual Museum people will include them as part of a virtual collection. There's a TresorTreasure channel in YouTube you can follow to look at them directly, if you want - ignore the topics, scan the list of videos on the right. It will be interesting to see where something like this leads; at a minimum, it will produce a number of worthwhile artifacts. Today: Total:82 [Comment] [Direct Link]
