Workstation Mod 

For anyone wondering why I haven't gotten back to them: sorry. I've become a little obsessed with some writing projects.

I do a lot of pacing while I write, so I'm actually standing up while I type this. I had to reconfigure the dining-room 'workstation' in order to comfortably stand and type, so voilà! I give you the Swampland Desk Extenders™:

I say 'swampland' because I'm using an old drainage tile that I first used as a bookshelf support when I was an undergrad.

Why I Love Wikipedia 

In between other projects, I've been constructing a blog post explaining all the reasons why I love Wikipedia. Today, instead of explaining why, I can point to an illustration of why. See the Oxytocin connection thread on the Asperger Syndrome talk page.

The ramifications to endocrinology, societal structure, gender politics, education, etc. explode. For example, this is also an illustration of how this networking technology truly allows women to fully participate as equals in the human conversation, and ensures that we will be included in the conversation.

Brad, Joe, Virden: you guys rock.
