I had the honor of meeting Doug Engelbart at a party in his home in the 1990's (and have had the honor of meeting Ted Nelson several times). Both are among my personal heroes. Everybody should watch this clip.

My nephew Brad is one of the principals behind this KickStarter. I gave him some tips on how to appeal more to "real" programmers.  ("Include lots of curly braces... except in the Python set!") Check it out; I know some of you spawned child processes recently...

Most of Greg Egan's works are available now for $2.99 each on Kindle. (Permutation City, alas, is not among them, but Quarantine is.)

Watch out; there's a competing version of Schild's Ladder from HarperCollins at $8.89. (The one I bought last year, sadly.) Don't ask me how this is possible; ask Egan's solicitors.
