Now it's time to move on and get back to some semblance of normalcy. Football is easier. The Superbowl lasts a few hours, it's really intense, then it's over. The World Series takes a week-plus if it's a seven game series. There was a point when we thought the Giants had won, in the seventh inning of game six. But it wasn't meant to be. Like the Boston Red Sox in 1986, the Giants gave up the win, and then lost in the finale. For me, 2002 was the year when the Giants got me. Next year I'll be rooting for them. Now it's time to get on with other things. I'm sorry this wasn't the year, I wish we were celebrating a great victory right now, but we'll be okay.

Mitch's design process
Mitch Kapor begins to talk about his design process. Mitch's process is something to behold. And it's hard to imagine it working over the Internet. But it's worth trying. Mitch is the ultimate notetaker, very thoughtful. He talks about having a master outline for his design. Now this is new, I've never heard Mitch say he wanted to use outlines. My ears perked up when I read that. I have a bunch of things to do this morning, but I want to comment on this some more, a little later today.
Here's the October archive for the mail list Mitch talks about. Previously I had mindlessly clicked on the December archive and wondered where all the messages were. It turns out they were in October. Makes sense. Now why there's a December archive in October is another question.
