Seeing as Mitchell is ragging on me to play Star Wars Galaxies. I thought I'd better read a Review.

It seems like a mixed bag. What SWG needs is way more content it seems. WAY MORE. I'll have a play then comment some more.

Of course the same company does Planteside. Now this I enjoy a lot.
"You want some of this? All you gotta do is stand up." That's pretty much what I heard President Bush tell the bad guys, and it appears I'm not the only one who heard it that way. "Woot!" for the President.
Bill Whittle finally posts Trinity in two parts. I continue to be amazed at the quality of the writing that falls off this guy, and further amazed at how perfectly he captures the essence of Americanism. Hooray for Bill!

  • Trinity Part I

  • Trinity Part II

  • Go and read. Now.
    David Brin's "The Transparent Society" had quite an impact on me, not least because it crystallized a suspicion I already had towards people who claimed that if we all used PGP then the government would just wither away and utopia would arrive. Now, interestingly enough, MIT appears ready to test his theory of transparency.
    I don't mind overdubbing so much; everyone makes mistakes and overdubbing just helps ensure that the finished CD is listenable over many sessions. I do, however, think that pitch correction like this is pretty dishonest. I'll grant that it's merely a question of degree; you could claim that it was just overdubbing if you cut-n-pasted individual notes that a musician happened to get just right, but we'd all recognize that as a travesty of the idea of performance. Pitch correction: okay as long as it's labelled.
