I finished reading Jared Diamond's I finished reading Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs and Steel while I was in SF, and I heartily recommend it to anyone who ever asked themselves why Europeans emerged as dominant during the last half millenium. Lots of great insights into the nature of technology development and transfer, too. To say nothing of the zebra trivia. Posted by schampeo at November 09, 2000 01:28 PM
