Robert Sprynn admits that he might hate Pennsylvania. I know what he means. It's a dirty overcast state, without much to say for itself, wedged between New York and Ohio (another dim place) -- they have two baseball teams in Pennsylvania, both National League, undistinguished and kind of overcast and dirty, hardly worth mentioning. The only place I can think of that's less distinguished than Pensylvania is Maryland.
I just noticed that the Consulate General of Sri Lanka has a Manila site. It's a weblog. I bet we could have a good Scripting News dinner in Sri Lanka. Do they have good beaches? Do they have good food?
CIA Factbook page for Sri Lanka. "Slightly larger than West Virginia." That's an approachable size.
Acclaimed science fiction author Arthur C Clarke has lived in Sri Lanka since 1956. "It's India without the hassle."
Why can't work always be as easy as it is this week? I find it very relaxing. I can take a break or a walk and still get a huge amount of work done in each session. It's not that the phone doesn't ring. I spent at least two hours gabbin today. What is it about this week that makes work so easy and satisfying?
Grand Central has some developer kits.
A new idea. A virus aimed at geeks. Cute.
John Robb's picks for top trends of 2001.
Jake wants to know what x =  * (2 * 2) means, in Python.
Brent Simmons: "Email is no longer reliable."
What were the big trends of 2001?
5/9/95: "I had originally wanted to call the language Juicy, because it is C-like, and because both Doug Baron, and I are Jewish. But decorum prevailed and we went with the more predictable (and boring!) UserTalk name."
Two years ago today we were counting down to Y2K. Time named Einstein the Person of the Century. "Our minds can travel to other galaxies, to the first moments of creation, not from belief or emotion or faith, but from thought. This is true power!"
NY Times: In Rewritten Internet Fables, the Late Bird Gets the Worm.
Walt Mossberg: Microsoft had a good year, at expense of customers.
Christopher Hanson was born two years ago today.
Bootstraps and corner-turns
This year we spent a lot of time on corner-turns after lots of bootstraps last year.
The two concepts are quite related. I'm going to go take a walk and formulate the relationship and then write about it later today or tomorrow.
