This is awesome — a blogger takes down an oh-so-genteel sneering book review in the Wall Street Journal, the writer of which is simply shocked that someone who was in (gasp!) computer science has been allowed to write his own version of The Odyssey. Note to the staff at the WSJ: only insecure, shallow people make culture into a matter of cliques and status marking. Anyway, read the whole thing. (Via Photon Courier.)
Update: I’m back on the laptop, as the cheap batteries in my desktop’s wireless keyboard just died, and I don’t have any more that size (AAA — not counting the one that rolled under my sofa, and I think when I finally get it out from under there I’ll throw it out). I think I’ll be purchasing a regular plug-in keyboard for the desktop for situations just such as this.
