family stuff and Tron Legacy
Here are the three of us at Christmas dinner
at the house of my ex-wife in Maryland.
Chris persuaded us all to see Tron Legacy (in IMAX 3-D) a couple of days ago. At first, it just seemed like entertainment, not really addressing the kinds of global issues I usually think about, or even state of the art computing. But then I realized -- it really reflects a lot of the basic feelings here in our house in Virginia, overlooking the wilderness, but ten minutes from some tricky complex systems. Even Zeus is a neat reflection of Chris's head principle.
But little games like conventional energy technology and economics are still a bit better than sudoku or doing nothing at all, in the off-grid world...
This is not the whole family -- just the three living in this house.
