thoughts percolating.

i'm looking for critiques of Monderman's signal-removal theory. the bios suggest that he recognizes limits -- signalless streets need to be complemented by a [presumably] access-controlled high-speed system. I'd like to know more of that.
of course the news articles are all shallow-view: "hey this magic idea is so wacky it just might work!".

I've only recently started watching any House, but my love for Buffy goes years back. This parody is such a great melding of the two, that it is funny even if you only watch one of the shows* ).

I've just discovered ljmaps. It's fun toy, go play.

Interesting to combine what I've been reading as the "locations" meme goes around with what I see on the world map. Several of my friendslisted people have already marked themselves... but clearly a while ago. =)

It's getting cold in New England. Do you have someone in your bed to keep you warm?

Maybe the problem is your voting habits... http://www.votergasm.org/
