Indogermanisches Etymologisches Wörterbuch
I wouldn't so much mind paying 400 bucks for these two paperbacks if my German was a whole lot better. Someone please translate these, OK? Actually, I might get them anyway, to sleep with. Imagine the dreams that would come. In a Major Industry Publication, I recently wrote: "I remember thinking about the cave paintings at Lascaux and Altamira, about dictionaries as a form of lexical archeology, about Indoeuropean etymologies that went back to the steppes of Asia, to people who rode into battle bareback and made up words for the sounds their swords and axes made, for the sounds of love, for the sounds of the night." Julius Pokorny, I am with you in Rockland.

Life is a mystery and has always been. That's the good news. The bad news is there isn't any. This leaves little to do but marvel. Here are people going back in time, marveling and being awestruck. You know why. This message always passes between us through any available medium. The medium matters, but little. We're getting faxes from Alpha Centauri. Email from the Greater Megellanic Cloud. Something is out there. Something is in here. Pass it on...

all noise - all the time
Mouse on my picture above. I was going to draw a Zorro mask and a mustache on it, but this seemed so much better. Why can't I get serious? Could it have something to do with the dali llama?

friends of jezebel's mirror
RageBoy peers deeply into industry mirror. And it peers back into him. You can't say Nietzsche didn't warn us. Actually, there's not much you can't say.

BLOGGER on Blogger on blogger...
The guy who created this thing that is costing me so many precious hours of my life writes: 'Doc Searls writes to his fellow Cluetrain authors: 'Weblogs are also an extremely significant market development that I wish we had written about. It is not only highly vocal, but highly conversational, and very much a native creature of the new agora.' Amen. While we were reading The Cluetrain Manifesto here at Pyra, we couldn't help but naturally think about Blogger -- especially during 'The Hyperlinked Organization' chapter, wherein David Weinberger writes: 'Hyperlinks are the connections made by real individuals based on what they care about and what they know, the paths that emerge because that's where the feet are walking, as opposed to the highways bulldozed into existence to a centralized plan.'
Along these lines, we're on a mission to 'Bloggerize' companies to encourage the kinds of hyperlinks, connections, and conversations the Cluetrain boys write about. We've created something called "Enterprise Blogger" for large companies who can't use the tool outside their firewalls. It's currently being tested in Cisco, where anyone in the company can go and create a blog for their team, project, or area of expertise. More info to come..."

Strange Foods: Bush Meat, Bats, and Butterflies: An Epicurean Adventure Around the World
A reader writes to excoriate me on the misspelling of inscrutable (see below), but redeems himself with this item: "On the topic of recipes for rat, I strongly recommend this book." And not only rat, it seems, but also bat, dog, scorpion, flamingo, ostrich and elephant. Mmmm!
