Three recent blog posts:
"God, I Hope Webcomics Don't Go the Way of Print Comics" - David Foster Wallace
"What Science Fiction Would Be Like If Science Fiction Writers Had Sense" - Douglas Adams
Makes sense. Funny essay about science fiction.
"Did You Know Deer Will Let You Get This Close?" - Stephen King
Other, unpublished pieces I have lurking around my hard drives (works-in-progress and whatnot):
A Wikipedia-type definition of copy-writing - Margaret Atwood
An essay entitled "Elitism is Good!" - Kurt Vonnegut
Yay! I was going for Papa Kurt!
An essay entitled "The Hacker as Archetype" - William Gibson
An old Python command-line poker program I wrote - Bram Stoker!
That's about right for how I code.
The complete source to my Flash Drop-A-Block game - David Foster Wallace
My current .emacs file - David Foster Wallace
I kept getting a buttload of DFW. On like every two blog posts I tried. The Boing-Boing commenters also remark that DFW pops up a lot. So this thing seems to not be too scientific. I'm sorry, but I never heard of this Wallace bird before, and he doesn't really impress me as somebody to emulate.
But at least I didn't get one Dan Brown!
Update 7/17/10: Apparently it "went viral" now, according to the write up over at Huffy-Poo.
