“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
--Audre Lorde

  • All the sad news. RIP Aaron Swartz.
  • Finished The Little Prince. The fourth planet belonged to a businessman:
    "When you find that a diamond that belongs to nobody in particular, then it's yours. When you find an island that belongs to nobody in particular, it's yours. When you're the first person to have an idea, you patent it and it's yours. Now I own the stars, since no one before me ever thought of owning them."
    "That's true enough," the little prince said. "And what do you do with them?"
    "I manage them. I count them and then count them again," the businessman said. "It's difficult work. But I'm a serious person!"
