Archive, destroy, measure, or otherwise mangle your Maildir, using this simple /bin/sh script

What I really want is a Maildir system that works like MH, but until then, there's maildirfind.sh.

I was invited to address the Business and Leadership Forum of the California Commonwealth Club on May 10, 2006. I spoke of serfs and lords and explored the changing nature of property and property rights in the digital era.

Introduction

Good evening and thank you for inviting me to speak to you tonight. I'm a technology geek, and it's rare that I'm allowed to address a mainstream audience.
