*laugh* Do you know David Friedman? I talk to him all
(in email). Smart guy!
I've somehow never managed to run into him; I gave up on
h.p.o. (and Usenet in general) a long time ago, and I've
never found any excuse to e-mail him. He was actually
scheduled to speak at Extro 5, where I was speaking on a
different topic, but he couldn't make it. His son,
Patri Friedman, however, hosts a great table-stakes poker
game which I frequent.
