Watched The Matrix with the boys again last night – still a good flik. Listened to some Greatful Dead with Robert. Read more of Voyager. Still didn’t get enough sleep, can’t breathe. The air’s like 100-grit sandpaper. The Pollen count’s somewhere in the 900’s today, whatever that means. Nothing to be allergic to, no symptoms other than coughing, I just can’t breathe comfortably.

“The bells are tolling for the cyberchurch, but the parishioners remain unfazed.” What did you think of Bill Joy’s, ummm, article?

“That toothpaste is not going to go back into the tube. … Intellectual property in the form of bits cannot be secured, not by laws and not by technology. Its makers need to listen hard to what their customers want, and then to give it to them at the right price with unbeatable convenience.” – Keith Dawson

The browser wars are back. “…I’m afraid to install the IE5.5 beta, but didn’t have a problem with installing the Netscape one…” – Edd Dumbill

Will Browsers Ever Not Suck? “…the very nature of the Web’s success — its simplicity — is directly responsible for much of its downfall. ” – Jeffrey Veen

Lego’s buying Zowie?

Can hyperlinks be outlawed?

Is there life on Europa? Hmmm. “All these worlds are yours, except Europa… ATTEMPT NO LANDINGS THERE.”
