Hmmm. Response to my earlier post on my self-announced candidacy for Apple’s Board of Directors has been . . . I don't want to say “lukewarm,” but — well, choose your own term. I’m turning my attentions elsewhere. I just learned today that the notoriously touchy Alain de Botton has just been named the writer-in-residence of London’s Heathrow Airport. This interests me strangely. If the Apple Board thing doesn't work out, I’m going to seek to be named writer-in-residence at DuPage Airport. Wish me luck!
