Buster Baxter

(Letter sent to New York Times concerning their article about politics around Postcards from Bustor.)

My three-year-old daughter is learning how to act nicely with people that are different from her. She often watches ‘Postcards from Buster’ on PBS. In one episode, Buster visits kids in Kentucky that are clogging. While I recognize that some religious groups consider dancing sinful, I’m glad that my daughter had a chance to learn about this different lifestyle. In another episode, Buster visits a fair in Indiana where a boy shows a pig and talks about how it will go to the slaughterhouse. While I recognize that some animal rights groups consider this wrong, I’m glad my daughter had a chance to learn about this lifestyle as well.

Quote of the day

I stumbled over this quote over at the Online Social Networks conference. I thought it was a great quote, and would share it here:

Some problems are so complex that you have to be highly intelligent and well informed just to be undecided about them.

The Gates

Today, Kim, Miranda, Fiona and I went into New York City to see 'The Gates'. Because of this, I'm now over 400 emails behind, and way behind on my reading for Online Social Networks 2005.

There ought to be a law...

No sooner had I posted a comment on a forum about the famous $250 Neiman Marcus Cookies, than I got an email pointing me to this site.

Pushdown stack overflow

<rant>

Okay. So, I have over 400 messages in my inbox. There are 66 discussions I am behind in at the Online Social Networks conference.

Lots of people want help with their websites or CivicSpace modules. All of this is either unpaid, or people have said that they will pay me some nominal amount sometime in the future. I need to find a real source of income. I need to catch up on all my online activities. I need to spend time with my family. I am this close to hitting 'Delete all unread email' and 'Mark all discussions read'
