Came across this article by Bill Joy (one of Sun Micro’s movers n’ shakers) “Why the future doesn’t need us”. For a systems architect he writes really well. And it’s the most level-headed view I’ve come across so far.
Went and saw ‘Down by Law’ last night. The Torquay film society were showing it. They meet in the surf museum – there was boards everywhere – will have to go back there and have a proper look sometime.
Good movie. I like Jim Jarmusch’s stuff. ‘Night on Earth’ is another good one of his – and one of the actors was the same through those two – they guy who played the Italian taxi cab driver in Night on Earth. And Tom Waits is pretty cool, his personality spread right through the film. It had an interesting look too, not black n’ white, but black and faded yellow.
