I left off Anathem at page 100 during lunch. NO SPOILERS. I suppose, all things considered, they're moving very slowly, since we're at page 100 and there's no hint about the plot of the book yet. I'm not complaining, since it's not dense prose. It's light enough to read on the train, while eating a sandwich, or before a nap, so it works out in the end. Reading Gravity's Rainbow fifteen minutes at a time while distracted just doesn't work. This works well enough for the moment.
Frig, it's raining. It looks dark out. It's 1:32. It's not supposed to stop raining. This means: walking to WINGS NIGHT in the rain.
There's cake over there to celebrate the birth of the $CORPORATION Value Chain. Wow. Truly an historic day.
Speaking of Gravity's Rainbow, I should be getting that in the mail any day now.
ASK HUSI: What's the youngest age it would be profitable to introduce Plato? I, quite frankly, think that some of his simpler dialogues could be presented to children as young as 8 with appropriate teaching aids and as young as 10 without any crutches - though with plenty of discussion. Is that pushing it? Then again, I'm the sort of person who teaches kids about induction no matter what age they are if I'm assigned to teach them some math (a first grader can understand induction, so why don't most college freshmen?).
Will I get any work done this week?
