What is there to say? I'm not very interesting. I'm not a good writer. I don't even dress well. If you insist on knowing something about me just wander through the archives. It's all there.

On millions and millions of words

I did a search today for an out of print article on the differences in how the sexes perceive colors. I must have phrased it poorly and got about five thousand hits; none of them were what I wanted. The majority of them were porn sites. I wonder if you could phrase a search that actually hit every site on the Web? It would be the Holy Grail of search phrases. There is the riddle that goes, “What is the best way to suspend thousands of tons of water many thousands of feet in the air?” The answer is “make a cloud”. The Internet has become an almost infinite mass of words and pictures magnetically suspended in an electron cloud. Going to be a hell of a rainstorm when it cuts loose.
