Links for 4.23.09: Fair Trade music, offline Facebook, Benjamin Franklin letters…

by Josh Kimball

*Sustainability: The Guardian asks, Could there be such a thing as Fair Trade music?

*Amusing: Songs as alert boxes. It’s better than it sounds. Kind of. [buzzfeed via tds]

*Offline: Analog Facebook books. (WITH HOLES CUT OUT FOR THE EYES.) [eyeteeth]

*Prints: Check out this Beastie Boys shit. Again. (I think.)

*BREAKING: Some copies of Benjamin Franklin letters not seen since 1755 were uncovered recently by a California professor. Benjamin Franklin took cold-air baths. NAKED.

*Twitter: Mr. Kottke defends twitter against the likes of Ms. Dowd. Now I’m torn. I think. Erik Price, who is actually pretty good at Twitter, writes on the topic, too.

*Note: Happy birthday to my dad.
