Finalizing Config, New Media

(originally posted at bigbadgeek.com)

Made some quick changes to the admin section of the page.  Really impressed with Movable Type.

Well, today I received my monthly shipment from Amazon.  Eric Drexler's "Engines of Creation" (on nanotechnology) and Marvin Minsky's "The Society of Mind" (cognitive science/AI).  Also; the first season of Twin Peaks on DVD.  Been watching it in the background all evening.

The NY Transhumanist Association meeting was either moved or cancelled.  So after my long, stressful day at work (AT&T lost Dallas) - I just sat in the cafe and read cached email.

I left the book I'm currently reading at home today, so I started reading Drexler's book.  It's pretty fast-moving and no-nonsense.  He doesn't apologize for his views of the future.  He simply tells it like it is.  I think I'm going to like this book.
