Since early last year, the Crikey website has prided itself on collecting really interesting articles from everywhere. In that spirit, here are five great things to read from the couch tonight (ah, if only you had an iPad).

1. Building a career from Lego. Some people don’t ever get past the Lego phase. In fact, the company now recognises “certified professionals” in Lego building. But can Lego sculptures be art? asks Morgan Meis in The Smart Set.

One thought on “Five great articles to read from the couch

  1. Michael James

    One thing about the Palin rider, it is apparently the same as that for all the other Washintton Speaker’s Bureau speakers.

    The only Palin-specific requirement was for first class travel; from Alaska to the lower 48 states, and business class travel within the continental US, with private jet as an alternative. Pretty staid stuff really, especially given the distances involved from Alaska to Washington DC or the US North East or South East. (Alaska to Florida can be a 6-7 hour flight if you can’t get a non-stop).

    The requirements are actually fairly tame when you see the demands of some speakers and particularly some celebrities and musicians.
