    He can have his privacy. It's the useful stuff that he released under a CC license that permits this very sort of mirroring that everybody wants.

    By pulling everything down suddenly and serving 410s, Mark Pilgrim appears to have turned to a life of dickery. He's well within his right to stop supporting the things he's created just as much as it is his right to take down his blog and personal websites. It's this inexplicable move to deny distribution to the public the code and knowledge he has previously relinquished exclusive control over.

    As far as I'm concerned, he can move up to Montana, live in a hunting lodge, and spend the rest of his life writing an anti-technology manifesto. His last act on the Internet, though, makes him look like a jackass.

The reason that every major university maintains a department of mathematics is that it's cheaper than institutionalizing all those people.
