PostSecret

Be warned, that’s something non Oracle APEX related. :-)

Some weeks ago I read a posting about a project called PostSecret: A Lifetime of Secrets on the Blogspot – Blogger Buzz blog.

Since then I have subscribed to it in my RSS reader. I catch myself looking forward to Sunday, because that’s the day when they release a new posting. Some of the postings make you really think.

Have a look by yourself!

Probably everybody has a little bit of a voyeur of someone else secrets… :-)
