Leonardo's Laptop II

Finished reading Leonardo’s Laptop and appended a few quotes to yesterday’s post. Is this a great line or what?

The old business was about making a profit; the new business is about making a profit.

The morning’s email contained a note from a woman in the UK who had read Ian’s and my The DNA of eLearning and was interested in obtaining a copy of Beyond eLearning, from which it was excerpted. She came to internettime.com but all she could find was “a directory listing.” Uh-oh. I thought my minimalist menu design was lucid; she found it inscrutable.

So this morning I designed a Site Map of sorts and revamped my 404 error page.

Later in the day I dropped by Cody’s Books and Moe’s Books on Telegraph Avenue. It’s great to live in a town with a great university, for it guarantees good bookstores and great coffee.

Rather than buy books today, I jotted down names of a few books I want to read. As a member of four local libraries, I figured I’d see if I could simply borrow these:
* The Art of Happiness at Work by the Dalai Lama
* The Order of Nature by Christopher Alexander
* Lies and the Liar… by Al Franken
* The Resilience Factor by Andrew Shatte & Karen Reivich
* Good Business by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

What else? Oh, yeah, I installed the Textism plug-in for Movable Type, so you should see the difference between — and —-. These should be “curly quotes.” Dean Allen, the Textism inventor, seems a nice guy. Brad Choate, who wrote the Textism plug-in for Movable Type is an MT wizard.

Brad’s site led me to Matt Haughey’s great article on converting an entire site to MT. There goes another long weekend.
