Hazards of planning

Why am I only now writing about Powazek's fine Design for Community? It came out last Fall! But I cleverly sent it ahead to Singapore, so I'd read and review it in an ideal environment: an office, a good library, a good Web connection, and no temptation to rush out and write code to experiment with Powazek's ideas.

Unfortunately, the package never made it to Singapore. Or, rather, I never got the message that said "Come and get it!" In due course, the Singapore post shipped it back to the Boston office, using a slow but expensive surface rate.
