Charles Petzold is quite the interesting guy.  He’s a minor god among Windows programmers, and yet in his blog he writes more often about arts than computers.  Yesterday’s post about Visionary Directors from Mexico has me wanting to watch most of what he mentions.  The previous day’s Bach via Barenboim hasn’t made me run to Ticketmaster, but it’s still neat to feel the excitement in his description of The Well-Tempered Clavier.  Last week he compared XAML (a new approach to user interface programming) to screwball comedy.  In December he wrote a hilarious entry apologizing to the world for having given his mother a Mac.
