NWOSX dinners, anyone?

Brent: NW OS X Dinners. “I was thinking of starting an informal thing, not a users group or anything, but semi-regular dinners with other people here in the Northwest who are OS X developers. I mean ‘developers’ in the broad sense–not just people writing desktop apps but webloggers, scripters, designers, writers, system admins, power users, and so on.” Right on!


Jenny the Shifted Librarian riffs on DRM and computer priorities.

“I’ll bet that’s what really drove Hal crazy. Think about it. He probably just wanted to sing ‘On A Bicycle Built for Two’ (‘Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do….’) but the embedded DRM wouldn’t let him so his circuits blew, thereby causing the deaths of the crew.”
