Scripting News for 12/3/2007

Odd fact 

A one-night stay in a relatively nice hotel in a European capital costs an American about the same as a Mac Mini.

It’s left as an exercise for the reader to determine which is a better deal.🙂

Greenspun 

I miss Phillip, a real agent provacateur if there ever was one.

As reported by the NY Times, he’s offering payments to illustrators to spiff up Wikipedia articles.

“It occurred to me that when the dust settled on the Wikipedia versus Britannica question, the likely conclusion would be ‘Wikipedia is more up to date; Britannica has better illustrations.'”

Just $20K (less than 30 nights in a European hotel for an American) and he’s given the publishing world something to think about.

That’s called leverage!🙂

This is just a test 

Best wishes to Marc 

Best wishes to Marc Orchant and his family.

Marc had a heart attack yesterday, not a small one, and he’s in a coma after surgery, and fighting for his life.
