I have to go get ready for things, but I wanted to do a quick post.
1) Snappy retort to JK Rowling who is suing someone over his writing of a Harry Potter reference book, entitled, "Harry Potter Lexicon." It includes perhaps the funniest line I've read in a while: "JK... Can I call you JK?" Ok, maybe it's not that funny, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
2) This is SO AWESOME. A group called "One Laptop Per Child" has manufactured small, cheap laptops (with free - meaning open - coding) to be distributed en masse to the children of the third world. Only until November 26th, you can buy one for yourself to see how neat they are (and how cheap) - under the condition that you buy one for a child who needs it.
