    I read the Rome Sweet Rome thread after Boing Boing linked to it and enjoyed it.  It was actually the first time I spent more than a minute on Reddit.  After reading the Wired story, James seems like a solid dude and I wish him the best.   This is one of those “power of the internet harnessed for good” stories that I wish there were more of.
