Mr. Mike Olson's succinct scenario for the future of software describes the loosely coupled, specialized dynamic that I hope will enrich me and other Sun investors: "Applications of the future...will be composed of small cooperating components, each specialized in a particular task, tied together on demand to perform a particular task."

Egyptians in general don’t so much walk as glide (those ancient tomb painters knew their subjects) and watching a bunch of them weave their way among the cars zinging past is enormously entertaining, like watching a enormous chorus line do the cha cha.

But I wasn’t in the mood for it. "

“Hurry,” the cop said. And so we did – out into the hurricane of flesh and metal that is downtown Cairo.

What kind of American tourist comes in and asks for a cash advance, leaves, and then immediately comes back and tries to change a small bill? I was acting desperate, and desperation is always grounds for suspicion.
