All computer gurus are named Eric.
I wonder if the Greek Logicians would object to this statement.
I had the privilege of meeting, and driving around Eric in Naperville, IL. We invited him for our Software Symposium around 2000 at Lucent. That was great. I had written to Richard Stallman, but he wouldn't talk just for room and board. Our supervisors were not going to pay ANY speaker a gratuity.
It was funny when I later learned, through my friend Enrique Zeleny, that Stallman stayed in a squatters' place in Puebla! Go figure.
The point of this note, though; is to comment on a very good book by Raymond - I have a friend that translated another of his great books, "The Cathedral and the Bazaar" to Spanish, José Soto - the other book is "Homesteading the Noosphere."
I finished a course in Moodle here in Chilpancingo, today. I already installed it, in my Ubuntu powered desktop.
I can now host my own private space in Moodleland!
I can put here my Algebra class. Here is the blogspot version.
I am homesteading the Noosphere.
BTW, I finally bought Pierre Teihlard de Chardin classic book: Vision of the Past. I found it in a used book stand in a street in Mexico City! I paid four bucks! I will finally read what was his vision of the Noosphere.
It seems that slowly, but surely, I am finding my crowd in Chilpancingo.
I cannot do PyChilpo alone.
