Orlando Bloom, actually surprisingly, was able to carry the movie as a lead. I was surprised he had the heft to do it, but I agree with the critic who said that the beard helped. He was a man, not a boy.
I like it – cost spammers some money if you don’t like what they’re selling. The model is nice, can be applied to any sort of contact – you attach a ‘bounty’ to your mail, and if the recipient feels you’re wasting their time then they can claim the bounty, else they leave it. If you don’t trust your audience, you’d give a small bounty if they might claim it, but then as a recipient I see that you think I might take your bounty so I might choose to ignore your mail. You’d have to get it right to make money…spam squashed.
Joel on Software writes about the Wrong interpretation of (the Hungarian) Charles Simonyi’s markup ideas for programming languages. Instead of the mess that Microsoft has put foward in MFC for so long (lspwzwotsit), it turns out he had a much simpler idea. And the idea rocks, it’s just the kind of thing that good programmers find themselves doing (or am I talking baloney?). Twenty years to come full circle – funny how long silly interpretations can last for.
