Am currently 377 page into Neal Stephenson's brilliant new book Cryptonomicon. A lot of it makes me kinda wish i was single and childless again, so I could devote 100% of my energy to technology and invest time into outlandish startups.
However, it has encouraged me to take a stand. I wont be accepting email that is not digitally signed or at least encrypted from now on. With the exception of mailing lists of course. This way I can halt spam mail and essentially reduce my time needed to read email daily.
