As great as the movie was... it doesn't even come close to doing the book justice. Highly recommended.

"The Diamond Age, or, A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer", Neal Stephenson. I read it when it first came out, it's interesting to see how much of what he "predicted" has come to pass.

Going through The Walled Garden, by Charlie Merrill.

He used his Merrill, Lynch inheritance to found a high school in Boston, and writes with great candor and wisdom about what running an "alternative school" was like in the 60s and 70s. Great and interesting man. And-- thanks be-- his school is a lot less weird than it was in those days.
