I don't agree with all of it, but there are some interesting points made.
Hm, well, I guess someone will laugh about this version of The Lord of the Ring :)
This paper addresses some folks' questions of how publishers are supposed to make money if they "give away" their content, something I've written a paper about myself. Reminds me I should put it online :)
That about wraps up the abilities of America's president. Scary, but nothing new.
Little bit outdated [he has mail from Saddam], but still funny.
Very funny :) Make sure to check out his blog for more of this kind of stuff!

Interesting read about how Microsoft lost the API war [their advantage of old software still working with their newest OS; mostly by building in all kind of hacks for specific malfunctioning programs].

"I've been dealing with Microsoft for some time," Lucifer said. "I've been at this evil thing for millions of years, and wanted a way out."
