The unadulterated joy of meeting new people who think very much like yourself is the principal export of the blogosphere.
Someone reminded me recently to read Anil Dash's blog, I can't remember who. Anil Dash reminded me about rc3.org.
rc3.org won all the points for these articles on the front page:
1) Going to the Movies: about the inevitable failure of theatres vs. Netflix
2) Minute Fingerprints: about Bruce Schneier 's article on datamining
3) Gamers are Clever Freaks: about how WoW gamers game the Blizzard rewards systems.
I saw "Charlie Wilson's War" tonight, and recommend you Netflix it. (This was Mike Nichols, Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks at their best.)
Merry Sol Invictus to all.
