Coming Soon: The Book Is Dead

October 27, 2006

I usually don’t link to news items, but this is good: EMI Music CEO says the CD is ‘dead’

And, if like the CD, the above link dies too, use the FURL copy.

The Most Dangerous Place in NYC

October 27, 2006

So, like last time I go to the NYPL to pick up a book on hold (plus return two books).

I go see the book. It’s fekkin two inches thick and about five pounds! I’m not going to lug that tonight!

Still, I want something to read (as if the others I haven’t yet read aren’t enough!), so I engage in a suicidal act: I browse.

Then I think, has M. Dylan Raskin come out with another book? I check LEO. He has!

Bandanas and October Supplies by M. Dylan Raskin

A thin paper book. Ah, maybe I can get away light… no such luck. I ultimately also wind up with:

Framed by Tonino Benacquista

Shakedown by Charlie Stella

Programming the Universe: A Quantum Computer Scientist Takes On The Cosmos by Seth Lloyd

All together they’re thicker and heavier than the original book I decided not to take today!

The NYPL clouds my mind!

Chew on those neural net!
