(1) Sun Sep 25 2005 21:46 PST: I did get stuff accomplished today, but not anything that's visible right now. I'm reading A Fire Upon the Deep, which is just awesome (not just because it preemptively steals many of my ideas). I read Vinge's The Peace War and I thought it was kind of dull but this is great stuff. I love the big ole space opera.
When you're done, you should hie yourself to a bookstore and get _A Deepness in the Sky_. Both it and _Fire_ are huge, terrific, amazing books. And _True Names and Other Dangers_ is required geek reading. _Marooned in Realtime_ is a neat idea that doesn't quite hold together.
