The Dalai Lama hints he may be soon retiring and that that there might not be another head Lama to follow him. If re-incarnation is real I don’t get how he can just up and choose not to come back. Of course if it’s not real… One can only assume there will be a power vacuum with lots of people (at least one backed by the Chinese authority) of being the next new ‘real Dalai Lama’ ("oh, I decided to come back after all")…

Amazon decides to allow limited borrowing from Kindle-to-Kindle. I like the Kindle (as a starting point) but with so many new ‘pads’ coming out in 2011 there’s bound to be an ‘mp3-ising’ of eBooks very soon where DRM on them will go the same way it did on music. Of course it’s important whenever discussing this kind of thing to always take the opportunity to get people who haven’t to read Right to Read.
