We, the voters of California, have apparently just lost our friggin' collective minds. I just hope Arnold doesn't do too much damage.
The Great Unraveling
I just read Paul Krugman's book, "The Great Unraveling". It's a great, great book. I'm especially impressed at the way Krugman was able to gain so much insight about the Bush administration simply by looking critically at their economic policy. Highly recommended.
Also highly recommended: Chris Lydon's series of audio interviews posted to the Net. These are a great demonstration of how the Net can deliver content completely beyond the reach of the corporate media. I'll be listening, and hope to see more things like it.
170 dpi laptop displays haven't reached commodity status, but they're getting closer. Eurocom has a "mobile workstation" with one, priced $600 above the next lowest res, which is actually fairly affordably priced.
My guess is that we'll see more of these. It will be very hard to pass one up when it comes time to replace my laptop.
