no way to catch up ...
The weeks between September and mid-November are a bountiful time for book releases, with new works from Alan Moore, Connie Willis, Christopher Priest, Ken Liu, Margaret Atwood, and Fran Wilde, to name just a few. Clear some space in your schedule, and on your shelves—you’re going to need it.

The Hugo Awards proved once again that progress trumps nostalgia, as women, especially women of color, were the top winners of the night.

"An active association with Beale is, bluntly, death for your Hugo award chances. I mean, it takes a lot for someone as esteemed in the field as Jerry Pournelle to finish below “No Award” in Hugo voting, and yet, there he is, sixth in a field of five in the category of Best Editor, Short Form." -- john scalzi

I'm also all over various fortune cookie files, including a couple of places where I was quoting someone else and now it's impossible to find the original source online because I've accidentally Google-bombed it.

""It meant a lot to see Sandman: Overture nominated for a Hugo Award, and was disappointing to see that it had been dragged into the unfortunate mess that the pitiable people who call themselves Puppy had attempted to inflict on Worldcon and its awards. I would have withdrawn it from consideration, but even that seemed like it would have been giving these sad losers too much acknowledgement." -- Neil Gaiman

sake for the body, haiku for the heart;
sake is the haiku of the body,
haiku is the sake of the heart.

Story
Tagline
programmer, photographer, occasional haiku poet. unix since 1982.
Introduction
I'm a passionate programmer and photographer, functionalist, hard-core atheist, science fiction fan, beta geek and occasional haiku poet. I study iaido [muso jikiden eishin ryu - yondan] with goyo ohmi sensei [kyoshi 7-dan]. I have been an open systems advocate and contributor [eg. sdbm] since 1982.

I sometimes make notes here on photography, software, books, graphic design, some poetry, and other things i really like and dislike. i treat it like a shared notebook with external links. it does not cover my history, details of my family, other skills and interests. [i think of all so-social networking as a theatre of matryoshka dolls. it stops me from assuming too much. what you see is much less than what you may get.]

i have several albums of images here and more gets added when I have the time. i don't try to "freeze" moments with my camera; I let them flow, I let them move and capture me. to paraphrase thomas merton, photography enables me to find myself and lose myself at the same time. I work abstracts, shallow depth of field, motion. I'm a long time nikon user.

I hope you find something of lasting value in my stream. enjoy.
