I finished reading Martin Cruz Smith's Rose this morning. Not my usual fare, but Bill strongly suggested it. A story that was a little too genre, but the hero was easy to sympathise with, and wonderfully flawed, and I need to go back and find a quote about clothes and civilization in the context of the British caste system that got me to thinking about software interoperability, and why it's so important to Microsoft, and, as I found out this week, Adobe, that their software not exchange data well with other applications. I'll try to build a longer rant on that topic.
