This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

I wish I knew more about corporate law (never thought I'd be saying that!) so that I could better analyze Cringely's "snapster". On the surface, it seems brilliant. (read the article, he explains it much better than I could.) The only possible hangup is in corporate law. Are there any sort of restriction on where corporate property must be stored? Probably not, so never mind. I just thought of another hangup, though -- I believe that fair use allows the owner of the media to make only 1 backup copy of the media, and Cringely's plan clearly goes far beyond that. Interesting idea though, a highly-recommended read.

WHOA! That was unexpected. And I just finished Bobos in Paradise, too. David Brooks isn't exactly P. J. O'Rourke, but he does work for the Weekly Standard, one of the best known conservative magazines. Wow, there's going to be a real conservative on the Times op-ed page (and don't talk to me about Safire, because I don't want to hear it. Friedman is a solid moderate, I'll grant you, but I don't think he's a conservative.)

Boy, talk about a generic blog. What can I say, I'm not a design guy. My brother says he'll design a template for me if I want...

instapundit (like many, many other people)

OK, OK, so I'm biased. Big deal.

The best dang writing on the web, period. (At least it was, when I set up this blog 4 years ago.)
Lileks (especially the Bleat)
Eject! Eject! Eject!
