If you enter "futility closet" in the search box in the right column of TYWKIWDBI, you will get about 40 hits, because over the past six years I have found a wealth of material there for my personal interest, and I've used some of it for this blog.

Mark's 20-minute interview with Greg is available at the BoingBoing post.
