Quote of the day:

From George T. Dodds' review of Kenji Siratori's HEADCODE, as published at the wonderful SFSite:

"My personal opinion is that Kenji Siratori's HEADCODE is over 250 pages -- if only he'd written a sonnet -- of incomprehensible, undecodable (why not be truly hypermodern and write it in machine language?), tortuous not to say torturous, plotless, needlessly repetitive, self-indulgent gobbletygook -- a cyber-slang metalanguage to the cognoscenti -- that one hopes was printed on recycled paper lest it have the added sin of killing trees and contributing to global warming [If you thought that sentence was incomprehensible wait until you read HEADCODE]."

I'm glad Dodds has followed the maxim that if you can't say anything nice at all, then you should say something truly snarky and entertain the rest of us.

And a quick website plug: A Tear in the Space-Time Continuum. You know. Because.

I'll point Jen this way-
- if only for her to find your Lone Gunmen stuff. It was only through her that I could even wrap my mind around writing a screenplay. You're amazing. Not only can you create something like 3 websites, now you have a LJ *and* you're teaching! And thank you for your 'I'll be here then' update. Just so I'll know what weeks not to ask if you're available for coffee. :)

Sorry to spam your LJ. It's just 'cause I know you. Nothing personal.

*she says*

((((((((massive hugs))))))))))

-K

p.s. I see that you've learned all that basic HTML rigmarole that I sent you rather quickly. Should've known!! :D
