Flaubert's cyberpunks

Two miscellaneous notes

Two utterly random notes:

  • Green Wombat's comparison of jobs in the wind and coal mining industry last week sparked a minor blogospheric frenzy, including my own take. Todd Woody reacts to the reactions.
  • Open Access News brings the important announcement of a new open access journal, published in French, devoted to Flaubert.  We will never how the writer of "Madame Bovary" would have grappled with the theory that information must be free, but I think we can all take satisfaction that interest in the man's work is still at such a fever pitch that he deserves an entirely new journal, just devoted to him.
