well, was fun to read about your jobs. I think the religion topic was no offensive, a little out of topic though. My opinion about religion was already exposed in other threads, so I will be no boring with you again
Lyn, that info is interesting, even more knowing Tolkien was a critic of modernism and the way the tech "progess" was implemented.
Is really interesting, Christopher Tolkien points that the firsts books are related to a theological interest of his father, and the next ones are the fruit of a more philosophical approach. I always think about Aragorn as a perfect idea of a man, in an humanistic way. He has wisdom, he is a warrior, a moral authority and a good friend. He has to death just because he is still a human. He finds the divine in himself, but he cant go beyond his humanity. In a way he is a symbol about the human condition. He can make a hero from himself, but he cant be an inmortal god, and there
[in his mortal humanity] resides his force.
About the jobs of the vectorians, the pattern is like ovious, but I guess any person who likes science, math, and that kind of stuff will be interested in linux. I am interested on free software philosophy too. So I guess a person interested on ethics and politics can be interested in linux too. IMO, linux is the first successful implementation of an old ideal of science, which is about people sharing knowledge in order to improve the things around for the good of the community. It proves ideals can be realized and things can be done thinking in more than just money.
Truthfully, I have a number of electronically stored books in /home/docs; that's where you'd look.
That would be interesting to see. I think a man is what he reads
