Too much to write. I've done lots of cool stuff, and that's that. I wish I could write it all out here, but it's a question of time, not openness. It's like an uphill battle. I've got the urge to show my world to the occasional surfer or friend, just like all good little bloggers do. But... blogging ain't cutting it.

It seems to be directly related, but not connected, to my realization the past few months that I have a misguided tendency towards expanding my quantity of friendships, while assuming I'll have the energy to implicity expand their quality. (to be developed soon, i've realized more)

Somebody somewhere sometime once said something valid about how efficient connections cannot increase in quality infinitely. I forget who, when, and the wording. Probably because I was too spread thin to categorize and organize it.

He didn't refer directly to the Catholic Church at all throughout it, but referred more implicitly to the body of Christ which the Church consists of. I'd like to summarize my experience of it rather than a comprehensive overview of all of it.Regarding the ethical dilemma of creating technologies that may be used for evil, there are two things to consider:
We need to remain concerned about the big picture and not just the work on our desk. I work in a small division currently which forces me to be aware of the business opportunities and risks rather than just the programming that has been assigned to me. This needs to be equally true of our moral ethics.
The relationships we experience in our work are quite possibly more important than our work may be.
We struggle with whether the variety of emerging…

Innocence leads to broken jaw

This is a story from my friend K. If you know who I'm talking about, please don't use his name in the comments or I'll have to delete them. If you'd like to know who it is, feel free to email me and ask.

Major facts are just wrong:

Both men eventually pulled into the Speedway gas station at Edison and South Bend Avenue, police said, and about 30 seconds later a third vehicle, a black Dodge, pulled in as well, blocking the victim from leaving.

Intending to apologize, the victim exited his vehicle, police said. He was met by the driver of the SUV, who punched him several times in the mouth, knocking him unconscious.

I had my seatbelt on the whole time, and I wasn't punched by the SUV driver. I was sucker punched by his buddy from the second car while I was paying attention to the driver of the suv who was walking around yelling.

This all happened in the early hours of Sunday morning. Th…
