That Tortoise-And-Hare Odds-Vs.-Probability Thing
This post in my blog is my astonishingly long reply to an ongoing conversation in ozarque's blog. My post is so big that it would have hopelessly clogged up the comments there.

ozarque's post that this WOULD have been a comment to, if my comment hadn't been so long, is HERE:

A "forked" poem: And Fountains in the Midst of the Valleys
The original-version poem-in-progress, in its current draft, is in ozarque's LiveJournal, here. This poem here is an "alternate-universe" version of that poem. In the Open Source movement for software development, this sort of thing is called a "fork" of the project.

This is my Draft #2, and corresponds to ozarque's Draft #10.

Carpet Bugs
This is an SF short-short that I published in the guest-editorial "Open Channel" column of Computer magazine, which is put out by the IEEE Computer Society. August 1995 issue.

They charge $19 to non-members if you buy it from their on-line archives -- but you can read it here for free!

That They May Be, Like, Seen Of Men, Y'Know? (v01)
.
This is my "parallel-universe version" of a poem-in-progress by ozarque about mandatory school prayer; the pieces of that poem, in their current state, are here and here and here. All of ozarque's LiveJournal entries about that poem, if I've gotten my coding right, are here.

UPDATE: The latest version of ozarque's poem, complete, all in one piece, is here.

EMILY DICKINSON versus THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS!! (round 01)
.
Emily Dickinson Mash-Up!

It's the greatest match of all time!

Bigger than Godzilla versus Mothra...
Badder than Freddie versus Jason...
Meaner than Alien versus Predator...

It's... EMILY DICKINSON versus THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS!!

Recite the poems mournfully, or sing them with the famous melody cheerfully!
Try both! They all work BOTH ways!!

Happy Halloween....

They Don't Make Dictionaries Of Sumerian Like They Used To
.
One of the happiest memories of my life is the afternoon when my grandmother, Suzanne Teleki, explained to me Why They Don't Make Dictionaries Of Sumerian Like They Used To And Why Decades-Old Sumerian Dictionaries Are So Vastly Much Better. It was a very long, very detailed, and very abstract explanation. I was fascinated. In hindsight, I am amazed that at that age I was even able to follow her explanation, and able to enjoy it so much. As I understood it, The Problem With Newfangled Sumerian Dictionaries goes something like this....
