Alpha Geek?

I did an interview with C|NET recently that they wrote up here. It came out pretty well, although it's always embarrassing when folks do direct interview transcripts and you realize how often you use phrases like "sort of". Oh well.

In the article there's a comment from me about "biodiversity" that's kinda hanging there. They left out a rant I got into about the Irish Potato Famine. To understand what I was trying to get at, there's a really good book you should read The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World, by Michael Pollan. When you read it, try to re-interpret his comments in terms of economics and engineering. Very thought provoking.
