El Cardenal

El Cardenal

 I’ve been reading the International Herald Tribune for a few minutes each morning.  I like it because it covers more global issues with a slightly different perspective – whereas on CNN or MSN you just find the same news rehashed.

Anyways, this morning there was a neat article about a colloborative effort between the Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain and Google Earth to bring the details of great masterpieces to life.  All the ability to zoom in to see detail, but instead of seeing, say, some dude picking his nose on main street, you can see the brush-strokes and cracked laquer of art masterpieces.  Kinda neat.  There’s potential for an interactive art program online for teens there.
