Who am I?

You can look at my home page for more information, but the short answer is that I'm a dilettante who likes thinking about a variety of subjects. I like to think of myself as a systems-level thinker, more concerned with the big picture than with the details. Current interests include politics, community formation, and social interface design. Plus books, of course.

Buying media
As sort of a semi-pre-Christmas present to myself, I went a little bit nuts in buying media for myself this weekend. Here's the sum total for y'all's entertainment.

I ordered some stuff from Amazon:

But then I decided that wasn't enough, and that I hadn't hit the used CD and book stores in Berkeley for a while. I'd been piling up my list of stuff I wanted to look for. So I went.

The total from Amoeba records, all used:

And then I went to Moe's Books and poked around a bit before buying: Totally, totally out of control. Approximately $200 spent all told. But, heck, it's my first Amazon order since July! That's really good! Okay, okay, so it's my fourth Amazon order of the year, but I'll be good next year. Honest! Plus, all the CDs were cheap! Six for $38 is totally reasonable! Yeah! Okay, okay, I'm an addict. What more can be said?

Anyway, you can now see what I'll be reading/listening/watching to for the next month or so. Think of it as a sneak preview. Or something.

If you're interested in the content of this blog, but don't want to deal with checking the web page sporadically, I'd recommend using the service at Bloglet. Create a new account with your email address, click on "your subscriptions" on the right side" and enter in the box labelled "To subscribe to an RSS feed, enter the feed URL below:" and click on the Subscribe button. After doing this, the bloglet software will go out and check the website once a day and send you an e-mail with any updates. This is particularly convenient if there are several blogs or other web pages that you like to keep track of; I currently have eight web pages in my subscriptions list on bloglet.
