THE LAST MILE, REDUX - Back on my first day of real blogging back in December, I suggested that if the Baby Bells weren't careful, the last mile would end up being wireless. Well, Slashdot is pointing to an article in the New York Times about two guys who are actually making it happen in their garage (a few blocks away from the garage where Jobs and Wozniak made Apple Computer happen in the 1970s).

As Glenn Reynolds would say, Advantage: Wolfe!

I don't usually post these things (I rarely take them to begin with), but here's my similarity to Eric Raymond: Compatibility Test

Your match with Eric S. Raymond
you are 95% similar
you are 96% complementary

How Compatible are You with me?

If you enjoy that type of thing, have fun.

IT'S NOT AN EITHER/OR PROPOSITION - Eric Raymond explains why he's not a (left-)liberal and why he's not a conservative. I don't agree with all of it, but I agree with most of it, and it's does a good job of countering the left/right myth.

By the way, Raymond is the second person in the last couple of months who has managed to echo my views on abortion (Brink Lindsey was the first). And it hasn't been very long since I've worked out what my views actually are. Again, it's not an either/or proposition, although today's political environment makes it out to be.
