Angela Gunn repeatedly justified her place in Yahoo Internet Life magazine as one of the most talented brains in history ever to put words together and form coherent sentences. Back in '98 she logged off YIL. But she's back! And here I was about to cancel my subscription.. not now! not to mention she's both incredibly intelligent AND drop dead gorgeous! wakka wakka wakka! December 2000's YIL (no link available) initiates Angela Gunn's return with a column that will focus on Net ethics. Ebert, Katz and Gunn. After all these years you think they finally found the right combination?

I've read several of her articles on ethics and the internet. One of the best articles was her take (in the Seattle Weekly?) on Echelon and the erosion of personal freedoms in our nation.

I think she's an excellent and gifted writer. I'm glad others have noticed, too.

Naderized:
Ralph Nader has repeatedly justified his place in the US Presidential Election as one of the most talented orators in history ever to put votes together and form a viable third party. Back in '96 he "logged off" the stumpin' circuit. But he's back! And here I was about to give up my place as a responsible American in the voting booths of this great land.. not now! not to mention he's both incredibly intelligent AND drop dead gorgeous! wakka wakka wakka!

For being such a good writer, she is oddly critical of the process of teaching people to read and write: "Ever thought about teaching college-level literature courses? This ought to cure you."

I don't think she's critical of the "process of teaching people to read and write", bison: just that the responses of some of those students (and this is a junior-level class, yes?) suggest that they still had a high-school approach to poetry. Elitist? Perhaps. But my friends who work as EngLit TAs in American colleges too often tell me that they're fighting a losing battle to develop the skills of students who haven't been properly equipped by their schools.

The term, "eminently slurpable" was one not anticipated as I awoke earlier this morning; however, I seem to find my day being somewhat bettered by its utterance.
