Communication is the Mother of

invention. The Motoman is an interesting Khmer/Yankee collaboration.

It is a digital pony express: five Motomen ride their routes five days a week, downloading and uploading e-mail. The system, developed by a Boston company, First Mile Solutions, uses a receiver box powered by the motorcycle's battery. The driver need only roll slowly past the school to download all the village's outgoing e-mail and deliver incoming e-mail.

What Kind of Person is It?

Kottke talks about The Corporation, a film which considers the corporate person, and finds it psychopathic. He comments,

Winter Sports

We took the kids sledding yesterday. We're not sure if the Little Sister liked it, since her hat fell down over her face, but the Big Sister had a blast. I haven't been sledding for years. I forgot how much fun it is to whip down a 100-foot, 20-degree slope aiming for the 2-foot wide ramp — and then braking hastily to avoid smashing into the rock wall. :-D
