Taken For Granted

Time Magazine has an informative piece on the MacArthur Fellowship. This year's batch of new "Fellows" includes stage lighting designer Jennifer Tipton, geriatrician Diane Meier and urban farmer Will Allen. I first learned of the MacArthur grants when reading of Richard Stallman in the book Hackers. Stallman wrote GNU Unix and created the GNU license agreement among other pieces of technology.
