Nick is a great guy, and I was just telling him yesterday about how much I enjoyed his post about William Gibson. @Belligero - you're telling me you didn't enjoy Jack's piece about the Nautilus pen?Speaking of Nautilii, this just landed on my wrist 15 minutes ago while walking around Fifth Avenue (the dragonfly, not the watch):
