Hey. Does anyone have a copy of The Linz Cafe by Christopher
Alexander you'd be willing to sell? If so, email me - just make sure
to put Linz Cafe in the subject line or my ferocious spam filters will
tear your message into its component electrons. Thanks.
PS Since I'm asking someone to sell me something, this isn't spam.
It's like spam in reverse, so I guess it would be called MAPS. ;)
I've got "A Pattern Language" and "Notes on the Synthesis of Form", and find
his insights stick with me despite the obvious flaws with applying a purely
inductive methodology. I loaned "A Timeless Way of Building", which is
usually a way of ridding yourself of a book.
Not looking to sell either, BTW, just happy someone else is reading him.
What's Linz Cafe about?
Ask for their driver's license next time - and keep it until the book
I like books that make you look at things in a different way. Even if
the author makes bizarre conclusions and extrapolations, and is just
plain wrong, it's the different viewpoint that is of value.
You were _supposed_ to help me set it up. Say something like, "That
crappy book? It sucks. If I had a copy I'd _pay_ you to take it off
of my hands as it just annoys the other books on my shelves."
I wonder if I can sue you for interfering with my
scam...errr....transaction, and hold you responsible for the lost
income? Where's that number for my lawyers, Engulf & Devour....?
You can ask anything for anything - doesn't mean you're going to get
it. I was shocked, too.
It's about the design of one particular building in Austria...
I wonder what they charge for an espresso in _that_ place!
