So good to have a few days to mostly just read. Still processing:
- Snow Crash, Neal Stephenson (home of the Metaverse)
- The Devil Wears Prada, Lauren Weisberger (avoid if squeamish about the senseless slaughter of Gucci suede pants)
- The Second Coming of Steve Jobs, Alan Deutschman (complete with Dave Winer anecdote; must remember to get his take)
- Linked, Albert-Laszlo Barabasi (still Advilling through all the math; still concerned how many postulates it took to get why Google could rise so quickly)
For wonders more Web based, see Howard Bashman's 20 Questions with the Ninth Circuit's Judge Andrew J. Kleinfeld, Geoffrey Nunberg's reminder of how Salisbury steaks were born, Sarah Lane's May 1 Blog Report (don't miss the Arcata Police Log), and (courtesy of my husband and Newsweek): "Have you slept under water lately?:" Jules' Undersea Lodge in Key Largo, Florida.
Finally, since you'll probably be taking in The Matrix Reloaded for the third or fourth time when the segment airs, you might also want to set that PVR for May 15, 4:00 p.m. Pacific/7:00 p.m. Eastern, so as not to miss Professor Lessig on The Screen Savers.
