Hey Charlie, I've really been enjoying these past few posts on open source software. I've always been curious about what open source meant, and you're doing a great job at explaining it (compared to wikipedia which hasn't been so helpful). These past two posts have been very enlightening. I look forward to reading the next one(s).
Also, on a separate note, is there any way you can program your website to not destroy everything I enter in the comment box if I forget to enter my name and email? The first comment I tried to submit just went on for pages about what a wonderful and smart person you are, which would have surely put you in high standing to any future employer possibly perusing your blog, but then I had to retype everything when it didn't go through, and as you can see, my heart just wasn't as much into writing this one.
Ah, but some of the fun of college ie learning all kinds of alternative artists that you will *never* hear in the Top40...or at least not for another year when other people figure out how great they are!
This reminds me of a movie I saw recently called "Detroit: Ruin of a City." I might have discussed it with you before. It's an interesting documentary explaining the conjoined history of Detroit and the Ford Motor Company. A good portion of it is also dedicated to the urban decay of the city and how it got to be that way.
The entwined life of the city and its industry seems more relevant now as well, since our automobile companies feel like they're heading down the same road Detroit did many years ago.
As a matter of fact here are some of the photo's:
Facebook Weekend Sports Album
Some aren't the best of the weekend, but they are of friends in the entryway so I put them up...after all, it is still facebook
"OMG" (to follow your generation's lingo!)...Edward Albee (my generation, apparently)! Looks like you need to do quick google on him. One of American's most famous playwrights (Viriginia Wolf comes to mind). Very cool! I didn't see pix in the YDN online yet...but will watch! That is great fun. Who knows, maybe it will be Snoop Dog next.
2) You linked to your paper twice. Excited about it much?
3) Congrats on the improv gig.
4) I'm not sure about this whole "read more" thing on main page of your blog. What was wrong with having the entire text on it? I read about five of your previous posts before I realized that link was there. I guess that answers why you weren't writing that much...
