I really want to post fewer "hey look at this" posts. They get read, sure - but they get read because they're short and meaningless. Nobody reads a "hey look at this" post and says "oh, how thoughtful and intelligent, this has really opened my mind to new horizons."

A great example of the kind of thing I want to write more of is this, which is a fantastic essay that deals with what data actually is and why copy protection doesn't work, and why an honest programmer, when asked to write copy protection software, will kind of freeze up like a deer in headlights because you've asked them to do something utterly impossible.

A great example of the kind of thing I *don't* want to write is this entry.

But damn, that essay is good. Go look at it.
