it didn’t take long to figure out how to crack open stephen king’s ‘e.book’. if a horrible interface wasn’t going to slow down adoption of e.books, this will.

in case it hasn’t become painfully apparent – i’ll reveal the extreme nature of my superdorkiness by proclaiming loudly and proudly that i find this interview with jeeves very funny. it also reminds me that alan turing would probably be quit impressed with the current state of the art. don’t forget to stop by and […]

despite the hyperbolic intro on the pbs website, code rush seems like it could compete well for the ‘what-to-do-tonight’ award. unfortunately, none of the pbs stations in the greater chicago or milwaukee areas appear to be interested in picking up the show.
