Single-engine plane crash in Austin, Texas | MetaFilter: “Whenever I hear about engineers doing things that are radical, I’m reminded of the 2006 podcast I listened to by Marc Sageman where he talks about how many among the 9/11 folks were engineers. The Anarchist movement in the early 20th century were engineers and physicians. About 15 minutes into the mp3 [MP3 link] he describes this. It echoes here because the 9/11 ‘falls prey to an unusual reading of the Koran’ and start from first principles and ignore years of religious interpretation. The way the guy cites the tax code reminded me of that too.”
