ironic sig

I like the reflective irony of Campbell Menzie's new sig, recently noticed on an IT teacher's list:
The Internet's a mirror of our society and if you don't like what you see in the mirror, you don't fix the mirror you fix the thing that's reflected
- Vint Cerf (TCP/IP co-creator)
I face that problem every morning when I shave - Campbell

Campbell teaches both English and IT and it shows.

This inspired me to reread the final chapter ('Hope') of David Weinberger's Small Pieces Loosely Joined: a unified theory of the web. Which reminds me, that I intend to review that book.

Hi Bill - I just finished Small Pieces yesterday, and was quite inspired. One of the many memorable quotes: "The Web works because it's broken." (p 83)
