Yesterday I picked up a copy of the book The Hacker Ethic and the Spirit of the New Economy. I've only got about a 1/4 through it but already I want to work on 3dwm (and DRI and the linux kernel) full time. It raises some very intersting questions about our lives today. We are shaped by the work we do for someone else to elevate our social standing. It wasn't always like this, will the day come again when we are free to do what we are passionate about, in the timeframe we are comfortable with and be rewarded for our efforts? This is a very interesting book, I highly recommend it.

Work on 3dwm is still slow at the moment, but I am determined to find more time to work on it.
