Phil Agre: voice of reason

Speaking of conservatism, Phil Agre has a famous analysis of that much-misunderstood outlook, and a remarkable deconstruction of certain rhetorical techniques that will be painfully familiar to anyone who has read much of Usenet or (these days) blog comments. It's a fine training-mat for learning intellectual self-defence.

He's also very sound on cheap pens.
