Crazy Bob: 802.11n on OS X? Not yet

NY Times: “Former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger, who regularly advises President Bush on Iraq, said today that a full military victory was no longer possible there.” 

Where is the Bronx Science for adults? 

The best thing about going to Bronx Science, for me, was being in daily contact with really smart and creative people my own age. That’s what I keep looking for, as an adult.

I didn’t quite find it at Harvard, what I found there was permission to be creative, which is more than Silicon Valley gives, but I didn’t find other people who were creating in the same way I was, or who could appreciate what I was creating, or whatever — not sure, but the connections didn’t get made. I’m watching a PBS special about Aaron Copland, and he found that kind of collegial creativity, in New York, in the early-mid 20th century.

Hanging out here with Doc Searls for a couple of days last week was like what I’m looking for, but I want ten Docs, and I want to be around them 200 days a year, developing ideas across disciplines. This is what my soul yearns for, not fame, or wealth, more like fullfillment.

    Same here (even tho I never got a chance to experience Bronx Science). But I’ve concluded if I can’t find it, I’ll just have to make it.
