"Mike and Jon, Jon and Mike—I've known them both for years, and, clearly, one of them is very funny. As for the other: truly one of the great hangers-on of our time."—Steve Bodow, head writer, The Daily Show

"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

Vewwy Vewwy Quiet

Perhaps you've noticed this site is in a bit of a lull. Partly that's because I've decided to start sleeping 22 hours a day. But it's also because I'm working with After Downing Street on some of their current activities, and it's keeping me extremely busy.

Speaking of which, I'm going to be on WRCT in Pittsburgh tonight at 6:00 pm ET to talk about the Downing Street memo. If you're not in Pittburgh but still eager to benefit from my wisdom, you can also listen online.

Hi Jon: I'll try to catch the show. The hosts, Danny and Bob, are old friends of mine. Danny is the co-inventor of one of the coolest algorithms in the world, Splay Trees. If he gives you a hard time (which he won't, because he's the nicest guy), just say: "I've proved the Dynamic Optimality Conjecture." You'll see the reaction.

If only I would have read this a few hours ago! I am sorry to have missed it, I wonder if it will be archived online or if I can find a transcript. Hope our boys here in Pittsburgh treated you well.
