git on Windows

If you have had problems using Git on Windows, and the error refers to something called a "Git entry point" and you get a popup that mentions "libiconv2.dll" or "libiconv-2.dll", I fixed it by copying the libiconv*.dll files in the Git 'bin' directory to C:\Windows\SysWOW64.

I was going to mention this on Stackoverflow.com, but I didn't want to create a question and then answer it myself. So there.

Clay Shirky stole my idea

Or rather, I had the inklings of the same idea years ago when I realized the video games and interactive media, turbo-charged with fast networks, are more active and participatory than TV or, dare I say, books and printed materials.

Wright is (was?) the only thing stopping Obama

Finally Obama denounces Rev. Wright. It's about time.

I completely understand why Rev. Wright is so bent on ruining Obama's campaign. Obama as president is a terrible idea for racists like Wright: it robs the pastor of much of his raison d'ĂȘtre. What a complete and utter moron. Why do people tolerate people like Wright? Because if they don't, they are automatically labeled as racists.
