completely unreadable due to the lack of colour contrast :).

great emails otherwise though!!

   We have a plethora of featured courses to share with you this week (and
aren't you impressed that we know how to use the word "plethora"?) Each and
every one of them is really exciting, they cover a range of subject, from
music to poetry, philosophy and programming, and we're delighted to be able
to showcase and share such creative, challenging and all-round groovy peer
learning possibilities with you. Hold on to your hats, folks, and let the
wild ride begin...

*Hack This Poem*<http://p2pu.us2.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=f080ec78070523d59ef613eda&id=49bf65875c&e=edb0da0e62>
 Take poems you like. Decompose them to find of why. Write your own. What
makes a poem “work”? We’ll take poems apart and put them back together to
find out.  We’ll tackle poems, render our own versions, and share. Our
versions will question each choice the poet made, at the same time we’ll
direct energies into making the poems unique, our own.

*Beginning Game Development with HTML 5*
 Use Javascript and HTML 5 to make a multiplayer game you can play with your
friends in any browser.  Each week we'll investigate a particular aspect of
game development -- input, animation, sound, physics, and
multiplayer/networking -- and learn how to implement it using Javascript and
HTML 5. Bring your own game ideas, and be ready to help your fellow learners
playtest their games and figure out how to fix their bugs!
The Philosophy of
The Philosophy of Death study group provides an opportunity to ask questions
such as: “What does it mean to die and who or what is the ‘person’ that
dies? Is it merely a physical body, or is it also something like a soul,
and, if so, does the existence of a soul indicate that there is some hope of
immortality? What should our attitude toward death be and what effect should
that have on the way we live our lives?” The study group uses a number of
prominent philosophical and literary works—including those by Plato,
Tolstoy, Montaigne, Jonathan Swift, Walter Kauffmann and Lucretius—to think
about death philosophically.

*The Art of Music - from Amateur to
 A study group for Amateur musicians wanting to go pro. This course has two
goals- to give us knowledge, and to give us a push to use this knowledge and
fulfill our dream. And by the way consolidate the values which will guide us
making good Art worth listening to.
