So... buggy is going on outside. An interesting bit of "culture", that. Rather slow, frankly, although I guess safety requires some consideration. And its amazing how inflated egos get once you have something that some people put time into. That is, the WRCT folks are smug and condescending to a level previously unattainable outside a VC office, and only because the greek kiddies...

woz spoke on campus yesterday. I just got majorly derailed in the process of verifying woz's address: woz -> jobs -> pixar (related to discussion with bucy; pixar history) -> next film + competition -> why Toy Story 2 doesn't count as one of the Pixar-Disney 5 -> PIXR stock/market -> Pixar-Disney DLP demo -> DLP cinemas -> how DLP MEMS are manufactured. And then I came back to Livejournal. Feh. Its amusing to reconstruct a research trajectory. Its why I really should avoid computer clusters on "vacation" (mode, at least).

Hmmm. offthehookb made me self-conscious of my music -- or that I don't listen anymore. Frankly, it is kind of still fun to load up a nice playlist. But I fear it may reveal a bit too much of my mood.

In general, LiveJournal has raised some interesting considerations of its impact. Odd "friendships" develop, which are odd to realize in meatspace. Being completely up-to-date with the moods and setbacks of people. Etc. I'll muse about it another time. It is a beautiful day.
