I get to be home for a week before heading out on the road again, and get to hang out quietly at home today, and blog...

Dave Winer: I need to learn jQuery.  Yeah, me too. 

The box-office power of Ayn Rand's 'Atlas Shrugged' baffles insiders.  Ha!  And I love it that on Rotten Tomatoes the critics give it 13%, but the audience gives it 82%.  There is a lesson here somewhere... 

PS let's hope Part 1 makes enough money to enable Parts 2 & 3 to be made!

Real life Atlas Shrugged: Obama to Boeing: drop dead.  "We can't allow any one company to be too successful...Scary! 

The 50th anniversary edition of The Phantom Tollbooth!  Wow.  Not quite as influential as Atlas Shrugged, but almost...  definitely on my top ten.  "... when I got to Milo getting lost in The Doldrums where he found a watchdog named Tock, it was probably already too late for me..."  Same! 

PS in the eighties there was a band called "Talk Talk", and I was so disappointed when I found out they weren't named "Tock Tock".  A missed opportunity for punishment :)

Here we have the ugliest couches in the world.  Reminds me that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but we can all agree on ugly. 

Man, Philippe Gilbert is having quite a Spring, as he takes Liege-Bastogne-Liege to go with earlier wins in Fleche Wallonne and Amsel Gold.  Chapeau! 

Have a great weekend!  I'm planning to (gasp!) sit by the pool, work on my tan, and read...
