Hmmm. I see kirk.com is back in "inscrutable" mode. For the longest time it had a picture of a VW van, and nothing else. Then for a while it was some sort of half-baked portal wannabe. Now it's just a graph of the word "Kirk" with a merged i and r. Odd. For a while, especially during the VW bug stage, I had this vision that "rats! if only that site wasn't there I'd have one of the ultimate vanity domains!" but the fact is there are a lot geeky Kirks out there, many of whom are more wired than yours truly, even by the standards of 1996.

Excellent essay on Fundamentalism and its conflict with the modern world, from the NY Times. I think people who say religion is bad should temper that sentiment...after some of the worst atrocities were by "godless" regimes. But they were, in a sense, fundamentalist. I'm begining to think fundamentalism is pretty much evil but right now I don't have a defintion of fundamentalism I'm happy with. (via camworld)
