Leave a comment This is the seventeenth entry in The Modern Library Nonfiction Challengean ambitious project to read and write about the Modern Library Nonfiction books from to 1.
Sun Mar 07 That way it wouldn't take me 3 minutes to indicate that I've read one book and I would actually start using it.
This would make my Software Roundup rounds a lot easier. I love The Container Storebecause it is what it says and I love containers. But what I don't love is differences. Also, I have no love for the password notebook they had in the impulse-buy aisle, a convenient place for you to record your usernames and passwords for websites so that everyone else can log in as you.
I think the notebook had a Sherlock Holmes head embossed on it. It was a simple matter to look up his password in the notebook containing all his passwords. What's the point of dog shows? It seems like a worship of the Platonic form, made ridiculous by the fact that the Platonic forms were artificially created by selective breeding.
It's not like people are still coming up with new avant-garde breeds of dog. I can understand county fairs where people show off their enormous pumpkins, because at least you can eat pumpkins.
Tue Mar 09 What was the Marbury v. Madison case all about? Use internet if you want. One of the advantages of having a digital camera that fits in your pocket is that you can take a picture whenever your arms are not paralyzed.
I kind of had this when I had the Hiptop That reminds me: I got rid of the Hiptop because it never worked for me. I now use a cheap old reliable cell phone with no features beyond Tele-TalkTMbut my time trials indicate that it takes about ten seconds for me to take my camera out of my pocket, turn it on, take a picture, turn the camera off, and put it back into my pocket.
I don't think I could have taken a picture with the Hiptop in 10 seconds. Plus you can actually see details in the camera pictures.
All that was seemingly a big lead-up to the fact that I've had to start putting up "misc" directories to contain pictures that don't correspond to a "big event, better take the camera" thing.
Here they are for February and March. These sets include hilarious moments like At least they didn't park in the handicapped space. I assume they know what they're doing. Anyway, I call this picture set The Scouring of the Shireand it should satisfy those of you who were hoping Return of the King would be even longer.
Sumana's story of her visit to a call center in Bangalore is up on Salon. Forget The New Pentagon Papersthis is the real stuff!
Sumana doesn't like the Magic Marker-ish drawing that adorns the story, but I do. I should write my sci-fi story about outsourcing, along with all the other sci-fi stories I'll never actually write. Well, let me check the map. Sumana got me a copy of Twisty Little Passagesa book I've had my eye on for a little bit.
I will probably start reading it tonight since I'm too burned out to do anything else more productive things I could be doing: OK, other entry coming up. Wed Mar 10 You're welcome to attend, but I'll probably just be mumbling something foolish and then staring into space.
One of my theses is that online campaigning qualitatively changes the dynamics of fundraising, but it does that by making fundraising look more like grassroots organization.
We can only make a quantitative change to the effectiveness of actual grassroots organization, because an end-to-end network is a one-trick pony. All it does is make things more like grassroots organization. I think staring into space is probably my best option here.
Last night Sumana informed me that the smarmy Andorian captain on Enterprise is played by Jeffery Combs, the same actor who played the smarmy Vorta flunky Weyoun on Deep Space Nine and about a jillion other smarmy alien Star Trek roles.The entire wikipedia with video and photo galleries for each article.
Find something interesting to watch in seconds. You can combine these strategies: Increase the water and fiber content of foods while lowering the fat content to getsatisfying portions with few calories.
