So, my experiments with mutt continue. Incidentally, if you think that I'm crazy for using a cli email client in this day and age... Well, you're probably right. However, I'm crazy, but not alone, as the dearth of great email clients for Mac OS X is something that's been written about a lot. Anyway, that's a short way of saying that I think that mutt+"a whole bunch of utilities to add functionality to it" is a (at least somewhat) reasonable solution, given the alternatives.

So, I'm wavering between email clients yet again - giving the mutt+isync combination a try this time... Mutt's disconnected imap support is sadly lacking, and I've messed with offlineimap before, but found it a bit too fiddly. Anyway, I thought quicklook would be a nice way to view the many highly important images I often get in my email, as it pops up quickly, and doesn't require an application switch.

So David Weinberger gave an interesting keynote this morning, entitled "Is drupal moral?". It was engaging and funny, but I ultimately felt that his conclusion (as I read it) was fairly weak. Essentially, he finished off by asserting that Morality is engaging that that is different from you. Therefore, Drupal is moral, because it provides a means for doing so.
