No, the world will not end…not yet anyway

I’ve grown pretty tired of the whole the sky will fall in 2012 thing, in part because I’ve been fascinated by Mesoamerican cultures for as long as I remember, and nowhere did I come across semi-convincing arguments that the world – will in fact – end. Call me optimistic.

Not that the prospect isn’t exciting – it’s just ridiculously misguided. In any case, one of the few up sides to this whole anthropological muddle is that people seem to be a lot more interested in all-things Mayan, and there’s some pretty neat content out there on the web – loads of it worth checking out.

Example? The New York Times Long Count interactive feature.
