Mono Awards

by Miguel de Icaza

Kevan Barney just pointed me out to this award that Mono received from Developer.Com's 2005 Products of the Years: .NET Tool/Add-in of the Year and also the reference on the article ``.NET Ecosystem is a Wonderful Place''.

Congratulations to all the Mono developers!

Robert Fisk

As I was preparing my presentation for this afternoon at the University, I got a call from Robert Fisk, which just arrived in Beirut. Laura and myself will be having dinner with him later in the week.

Robert Fisk wrote the book Pity the Nation which is the best book I have read in the last year. Not only its packed with hundreds of stories of people during the war in Beirut.

Gonzo but not Forgotten

George McGovern, presidential candidate in 1972, wrote about Hunter Thompson.
