Default My Dingalink of the Week Prize arrived!

Don't ever let it be said that Bob is not a man of his word. A couple days ago I received Nonzero: the Logic of Human Destiny, a first edition no less, very kindly made out to me personally (or, at least, made out to my nom-de-net). Bob even took the time to manually correct a typo in one of the appendices. A real gent.



I've only had a chance to read the intro and the first chapter, and as of this posting there has been no mention of the recurrent themes of Bob's oeuvre: no calls for the excommunication of Ann Coulter; no shell-shocked obsessing over the trauma of seeing Janet Jackson's nipple during the Super Bowl; no reiterations of the fundamental incoherence of simultaneously installing democratic self-rule and permanent US military bases in Iraq, but then again the book is quite long yet.

One thing the book already has done, however, is add another data point supporting my theory that depth and breadth of intellect is inversely proportional to penmanship.

Thanks Bob!
