Writings of a techie wizard

This news is several years old now, but I just came across the article today and I can't resist a brief comment.
The good news: videos of Richard Feynman giving his famous lectures on physics at Caltech in 1964 are available online, thanks to Bill Gates.
The bad news: if you think this means that a wonderful resource for learning about science is now open and accessible to everyone, think again. From the article:
You can take the boy out of Microsoft, but you can't take Microsoft out of the boy.

A recent article (via Reuters, via Hacker News) says that the US Congress should spend more time working and less time vacationing. I could go on and on about what Congress actually does when it is working, but that would go in the rants section of this blog. Here I just want to comment on one particular thing that struck me about the article.
