Results are in...

No matter how you lean politically, check out McCain's concession speech. It was classy and unifying and I have taken it very much to heart. The election is done, and we're all on the same side again, not as tiny outposts of our political beliefs, but as a bunch of plain old people who all share a big neighborhood they'd like to have prosper, even though we all have different ideas for how to go about it. Good show, candidates. Now let's see what the future brings.

mac application switcher

Someone, I can't remember who, was really annoyed by the default behaviors of the mac keyboard application switching (open-apple + tab) and today i came across this software review:

if it was you, here, give this one a shot - 30 day trial, $15 if you end up liking it.  the reviewer did.

full-length stories and novellas by silverberg, tiptree, bruce sterling, terry bisson, gardner dozois, theodore sturgeon, zelazny, octavia butler, le guin, del rey, ... this list is becoming a ludicrous who's who, so i'm going to let you go now so you can start reading.
