I started watching The Corporation last night. It's a fairly balanced Canadian documentary about how corporations came to be the odd entity that they are. The history itself is worth it, to see how the current mess of off-shore slavery was caused through the imancipation of local slaves a bit more than a century ago. Well, it wasn't just the 14th amendment, there may have been some optimisation on the greed axis too.
And it's officially summer here: it hit 36C (>100F) last week, and us igloo-bearing canucks aren't quite used to it. Few people here have air-conditioning, as things are generally reasonable around here. Damned heat. I walk to work daily, about 3.5km, so I'm nice and warm after both trips.
My pet project is stalled due to the heat and post double-time burnout. I'm letting my brain rest a bit before I push too hard on the next release. What was once a link logger is becomming more of a Blosxom replacement (somewhere between Blosxom and Wordpress). I want something with a simple backend, a GPL or Artistic License, and some way to deal with very different types of pages (to fit how I want my sites). It's a good diversion from my usual device driver/protocol development.
