I’m : a programmer, writer, podcaster, geek, and coffee enthusiast.

I essentially tricked myself into auditioning e-books [with a Palm m505] without even understanding that was what I was doing. And had I been introduced to e-books through, say, the Kindle, I would very likely have rejected them. The Kindle is too big to carry with me all the time, and the screen is not backlit, eliminating two out of the three things that sold me on e-books.
