Reactions with a Technology/WWW angle
to Travels with Samantha
I really liked your comments on software and the tools we're given to
write it. I write X stuff in C. I can't believe the industry still
uses it. I remember that when the ANS standard came out, a lot of
people were impressed by function prototypes. Jeez. We're writing
2-million line realtime systems that could kill folks, and until
recently we couldn't even be sure we had the right number of arguments
to a function...C++ is no improvement, just cheesy object syntax
grafted on top of C.
I swore when I got my MS that I'd never go back to school, but the
ridiculous software tools we have these days are slowly convincing me
to get a PhD so I can save the world.

Wonderful writing and excellently adapted to the network. The
pictures were beautiful; it was great to see some *good* pictures
Being LDS and living in Utah, I was particularly interested in
your comments on Utah and Mormanism.
Your writing is insightful without being arogant or sarcastic.
Thanks for your work, and thanks for sharing it.

Congrats for making the absolute BEST WWW resource on the whole net!

I have saved several of your stunning photos for my Win wallpaper.
My usually tacturn boss walked in and exclaimed loudly that I had to
the source of the pix. Of course I couldn't remember, hehe.

This is the best WWW content I have seen, and I've seen a lot. This thing
ought to be a textbook for intelligent Web design and a benchmark for
substance vs style.
