I'm really plugging away on my software, which means I haven't been keeping up with the news. Read your Cursor, have fun with Skippy, and read the Fitzgerald report rather than the hype.
Today I read this interview by Jack Rakove, a named Chair at Stanford's Dept of History, and was looking at this definition of Fascism from Mussolini.
The Rakove article really makes me want to spend a year just reading good and important books. For instance, my non-western history is lacking. What's the closest they've come to a government where everyone was elected or appointed by those who were? How'd it turn out?
It's been a pretty decent day, though. I think I'm back down to 30 bugs/features for the next(1st) round of beta. That could not take a month to finish.
