The three most-read things I wrote this year: A Sociology of Steve Jobs http://bit.ly/vHcMwA; Gender Divides in Philosophy and Other Disciplines http://bit.ly/vsx53W; and (by some distance the largest, you 100,000 or so nerds) Text Editors in the Lord of the Rings http://bit.ly/ofpzKc.

It turns out it's easy to make ebooks out of old blog posts. So here's one such book for you to read. I plan to publish a few more and then surreptitiously add them to my Vita.
