I've been reading Nialls posts about Accelerando and have come to an important realisation. These are stories I am not interested in. They're not stories about people and that's what I'm interested in. Telling stories which tells me something about people.

In a not entirely unrelated note, I re-watched A Few Good Men last night and noticed for the first time that it was written by Aaron Sorkin (the writer of the West Wing). Which, although unknown, was entirely unsurprising. The passion of the characters, the clear treatment of moral issues, acknowledging the ambiguities, and above all the rhetoric. It should have been obvious.
