[17:46] Millions of People Can't Be Wrong

So Dubya says that he'll conveniently ignore the millions of people who protested against war last weekend (including yours truly, who got misquoted as usual by the local press), saying that he doesn't leave foreign policy up to mere "focus groups", even though -- apparently -- focus groups are good enough for Cheney's energy policy and good enough for Ridge's "Ready Campaign" against so-called terror threats. Suddenly, every word that comes out of Washington is hollow and devoid of meaning. Suddenly? I mean, for months now. Think I'm kidding? Read this scary secret journalist's report on the World Economic Forum meeting in Switzerland last month.

Meanwhile, this Ceglowski character pops up again with a neato article on our perl.com site about vector-space search engines and elsewhere (thanks, Walt!) with a hilarious parody of Tom Ridge's aforementioned bullshit Ready Campaign website. Who is this guy and where did he come from?

Finally, in completely irrelevant so-called "news", the Onion, a bastion of sanity in an insane world, has the "scoop" (as it were) on David Foster Wallace's recent breakup. A must read.

I will be spending this weekend at CodeCon, and at the concurrently-scheduled FreeNetworks.org summit in San Francisco. Doubtless I will have something interesting to say about both later on.
