"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties

Last night I dreamed I was at a hacker/security conference that was being hosted in what (I think) was my parents old house in Yuma. I don't really remember anything except the word 'hick' was being substituted for the first letter or so of every vendor mentioned.

So instead of "Cisco" it was "Hicksco".

The only thing I really remember is at one point I stood up and pronounced, "Yo, bitches, don't you remember we're a HickCOM shop?"
