I have always believed that I was exceptional. Much like most Americans, much like many humans. However, the lack of supporting evidence is a perfect illustration of the difference between fact and belief. They are not a spectrum. They don't even generally overlap.
My wife and I are almost done producing our first novel. It's exceptional. Save up your six dollars, you will be astounded. Our children's book is next, we haven't made up a price yet.
My first profession was music. I quit when I realized how intertwined popular music and organized crime are. So I started doing IT for a living. I am coming to realize what rackets Multi-national Corporatism and it's related technocracy are. So my next full-length book describes the impossibility of computer security given digital technologies' genesis, resource requirements and societal context. As I happen to have an MSc in the subject it might also include some pragmatic examples and advice. As if "Howto: Behave Yourself" didn't have enough of that. For those of you (one individual, as far as I can tell) who bought the first edition, let me know. The second edition with a couple of missed essays will be along shortly, I'll send you one for free. Sometime between 'Pyres' and 'Shaggy Maggy Raggy Wagster'.
