  1. Noah,
  3. You made a remark I want to check you on, not out of any hostility but in the interest of my life long pursuit of being a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.
  5. You said that anyone could afford a thirty-five dollar computer. You had the wit to qualify that with "at least in this country", or words to that effect. But I think you are aware this isn't quite true, Noah.
  7. When someone listening who can't afford that food, medicine, and/or clothing hears someone like you, very successful (because of your hard work, applause!!!!), very well spoken, very smart, say that anyone can afford 35.00 for a computer, do you know what they feel? I do. I've seen them. I've heard them. I've worked with them. I've lived among them.
  9. I was delighted to hear you discuss Douglas Rushkoff in this week's Ask Noah. I've read some of Doug's work
  10. over the years (though I prefer, grin, Doug Hofstadter, truth told!), and enjoyed it (including some of his comic book stuff). Well done, sir.
  12. Always the best,
  13. Steve S.
