Biz Stone, Genius

While going through the server logs, I occasionally come across interesting sites that, somehow, contained a reference to our site.
Here's one - Biz Stone, Genius - "Yes, my name is Biz. If I have to live with it, so do you." So it starts, and he's a lot of fun to read. Highly recommended. If you're wondering why people bother to write weblogs, go read some of his essays, like "The Blogging Revolution - An Early Exploration of Blogging", or "Keeping a Professional Blog - it'll change your life".
Here's another interesting item. Last Saturday, he mentioned his visit to the Peabody Essex Museum where they actually transported an entire Chinese house from somewhere near Shanghai, through the Panama Canal, and reconstructed it in Salem, Massachusetts. This is an astounding idea, when you think of the scale and painstaking reconstruction needed. They mean to exhibit "beautiful and captivating works of art in the world in which they were created". It seems like this is just one of twenty-three other historic houses in the Peabody Essex collection.
One day, after I've created the Ultimate Business Machine that will make money for me even when I'm not working, I want to be a guide at the Asian Civilisations Museum. That is something that I've been really wanting to do.
