Had to dogsit Pete the puppy today--Sister Girl has to close at Panera tonight, so he would have been alone for ten hours straight, and her boyfriend couldn't watch him because... he's at Comic-Con on business (the comic book buyer, remember?). So... I had fun with Pete, but didn't get a damn thing done today. Sigh. And I spent all yesterday putting out various e-fires (which is just to say, I had a lot of email to take care of) while not really running on all cylinders, so... I'm a little loopy right now.

Wikipedia, Meet Google’s Knol, a "Wikipedia killer": " 'Like Wikipedia, With Moderation.' Articles on various topics are penned by individuals, and in many cases, experts — not collectively by the anonymous masses. Knol authors can choose to benefit from the 'wisdom of the crowds' by letting others edit or supplement their articles. But those changes make it into Knol entries only with the author’s permission." So basically... it solves Wikipedia's biggest (and it is big) problem. Of course, it retains a few of its own--the potential to be less democratic and more biased than Wikipedia.

Great Unread Books: Which classic are you ashamed to admit you have never read? "Would the eminent Cambridge classicist admit to The Iliad? Would V S Naipaul's old editor cop to A Bend In The River? Or would the former schoolmate of a fellow guest confess - with apparent relish - to never having read a word his old friend has written?" With video.
