Had a relatively awful weekend after a busy week. Listening to FSOL's ISDN and it is pretty cool. Broadcasting improvisational concerts at home to radio stations via ISDN was a pretty wacky idea back then (1994), but now I suppose it's relatively painless with streaming audio from a web site. Funny how technology changes.
I've been reading The Slate Diaries, a fascinating book of diary entries written by various figures for Slate magazine over the last few years. While it is interesting to see what famous people like Beck or Benazir Bhutto or the Simpsons head producer write, I find the entries by the classified ads staffer or the surgeon more interesting. And it's interesting to see all the different "voices" the text has as a result. It makes me view the diary entries here in a different light.
Otherwise, next week is Thanksgiving.
