It will be a surprise to most folks from the Northeast of the US ("Yankee Land") that someone from Texas not only can ready, but can read signs longer than "Beer", "Exit" and that little sign on the door that means women's room.
But we do, in fact, read longer things. No, really. Even stuff that's longer than a webcomic!
This week, I've been reading the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov.
For those not familiar with the series, Asimov presents the idea that the behavior of masses of human being can be predicted using history and mathematics. The series tracks that idea from its inception through a thousand years of growth, decline, war, discovery, scull duggery to the point that that a new Galaxy-wide, humane Empire results.
This is a good read. Asimov was a scientist, a lecturer and an amazing author. He has good narrative style, inserts technical information without it being technical, and really can move a plot along.
That's it for now. We'll discuss the rose gold iPhone 7 later.
