Dear Virtual & Actual Puppeteers.

This may seem a tad off topic. But it is actually about where we (our 
virtual community - puptcrit) meet to talk. The www.

I've been online since 1988 I guess and been a subscriber to the 
sometimes brilliant, always bizarre Entropy Gradient Reversals (all 
noise - all the time) for over a decade I would imagine. Christopher 
Locke's EGR was one of the first webzines, and it has give way to 
becoming a blog. The names may change but the dance continues. Most of 
his books (he has authored over a dozen, often with his alter ego, 
RageBoy) and been called one of the "top 50 business thinkers in the 
world". His subscribers have included Esther Dyson, Steve Jobs and Bill 
Gates.

If you have missed this slice of internet/web culture, fear not. I'm 
sharing his latest nes/tip with you below:

Valued Readers,
I was going to send this to just a few hundred intimate friends, but 
then I thought, what the hell, so I'm sending it to all six billion (or 
whatever we're up to) people on the planet. If you're at all interested 
in open source software, you'll want to sign up for the beta of the 
Krugle OSS search engine.
Details at http://www.krugle.com.
That's it.
