(Yawn...) And so tonight I am in Vista, having awakened in Farmington CT, got up and run again in the morning (!), had a couple of productive meetings in Hartford, drove back to Boston (at high speed!), barely caught my flight back to Long Beach, and then drove down here. I am still sore from running, but I must tell you I really enjoyed it; the same endorphin high you get from riding but faster and different somehow. Just don't know if I'll be able to walk in the morning :)
Okay, a quick blogging pass...
Wow what a post by Eric Raymond: A Specter is Haunting Genetics. It defies sound-bite summary, but he makes a lot of valid points and summarizes the controversies and politics well. Read it all!
The Oatmeal on a short list of minor differences (that aren't minor). Dead on.
Jamie Jawinski: Breathing Room III. Wow.
A fascinating article from McKinsey Quarterly: When companies underestimate low-cost rivals (PDF).
Cool! The U.S. survives the first round of the World Cup and advances into the knockout stage. I have no illusions that they have a chance to go all the way, but it will be fun to see how far they go.
The New Yorker is coming to the iPad. So be it. I will continue to read the paper copy I believe, but we'll see.
Brad Feld: The magic of email conversations. I like them too; and while I use Outlook and it doesn't do conversations, I use X1 to index Outlook and it does :)
Kottke: Kirk/Spock musical slash fiction. Yes! I have no idea who has time to assemble such mashups, but they're great...
I love this picture: Steve Jobs with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Could definitely be a caption contest...
Okay, that's it (yawn). Good night and see you
