Just what is an Interaction Architect?
Harlan Ellison's misguided, and forsaken television serices, The Starlost sounds like a heck of a lot of fun in theory. If only it turned out that way. (via metafilter.)

I've never really been bothered by Christopher Hitchens until his recent article titled Hopeless - Did Bob Hope ever say anything funny?: Hitchens concludes, "Hope was a fool, and nearly a clown, but he was never even remotely a comedian."

The article is filled with displays of a kind of wit that many of us exhibit and abandon before we leave elementary school. And what is it that makes Mr. Hitchens such a fine judge of wit?

I'd rather watch one of Bob Hope's Road movies that read one of Mr. Hitchens columns.
