are blogs important?  
i have a reluctant relationship with the internet, computers, phones, etc., but Nick sent me this article about cognitive surplus that made me feel like at least writing on blogs is better than watching tv.
http://www.herecomeseverybody.org/2008/04/looking-for-the-mouse.html
in that spirit, have a look at craig's new sociology blog. http://blog.cwillse.net. he gets excited when there are lots of visitors.
and the real reason i'm posting: i keep meeting students (grad and undergrad) at different universities and colleges who are working on making their student health services provide trans health care. i am excited about the idea of people coordinating efforts, sharing strategies, and linking their struggles with those of university employees trying to gain coverage. i think that winning coverage from big institutional employers is important because it strengthens our arguments for Medicaid coverage and for coverage under any emerging universal health program we get. (for more on this see nick gorton's new article in sexuality research and social policy). so, i'm encouraging these students to start a list serve about the topic. if you know that such a thing already exists, or if you know of people who should be a part of it, please let me know and i'll pass it along to them.
finally, i'm going to seattle to look for housing this week. if you want to rent me and bridge a two or three bedroom house or part of a house somewhere near seattle university with a yard, let me know.

Yay looking for housing in seattle. I live just around the corner from seattle university (5 blocks). Also my friends are moving out of a beautiful 3 bedroom a mile from seattle u. They are showing the house in the next couple of weeks. I believe it's available either in june or july. If that's interesting to you let me know and I'll figure out the best way to get you the info.

Listserv
There is a riseup list called transforming schools started by my friend Ren (taxishoes) that is a more general listserv for connection and sharing of resources between campus organizers on all trans issues. I don't know that you should send folks there (it's pretty inactive, although it could certainly be started up again), but I'd at least recommend letting Ren know about a new list, if it's gets started, as he can pass people along.

I heart blogging. It means I write everyday, it means I have to have a different, outward focus when I'm on my bicycle, it means I'm connecting with others who are in love with their bicycles (me and mine are currently in a monogamous relationship--don't hate). I'm finding it uniquely helpful right now as I struggle through a bunch of personal stuff.

AND I inspired a stranger to get on his bike and take pictures of Seattle. Right on.

Thanks for the post, and check me out at http://whatisawridingmybikearoundtoday.wordpress.com/

Come out to be rental computer software?
At the time of the last trip on the way to Moscow I met Harley while on the road. This guy informed my person, he was open to acquire a brand new Software system here this Notebook Warehouse near the area. Clearly, what a luck, I was just on the way to be off in the direction of this equal warehouse, although intended for a various cause. We determined that we travel as one, therefore we can offer information to one another.
At the moment I once in a blue moon obtain Software programs in a storehouse. I favor purchasing in the World-wide-web since nearly permanently there is the help to see a demonstration or even sample it for a limited time or through restricted features. I can never accomplish that within the store! My acquaintance opposed this, saying he has found out exactly what he requests. This man weathered previously at his associates robot and it is the finest he really ever encountered so far!
At this point in Russia nevertheless it certainly is not dangerous to purchase [url=http://www.accuevent.com]rental computer software[/url] within the Net. It comes plus all assistance you need. Indeed it is good, when you present folks fun and this so greatly considered necessary recreation, while you handle a company that certainly is linked to Weddings, Actions and Celebration, nevertheless yet this type of earning funds nonetheless wants to get cash (smirk at this time). Hence keep it cool and remain certain you have a high-quality software program to handle every one of your ventures plus retains you up to date!
For me, Lanny Mckenzie the thing is your most valuable piece of equipment you can own!
Always identify, what has been top!!
