SThe Ungettable Joke is told in retrospect by two guys who were drawn into extraordinary circumstances. Individually, they are exposed to supernatural experiences which drive them to hit the road, one to escape, the other to seek the source of the experiences. These experiences seem to confirm a theory about an ungettable Joke developed by Dave, an engineer and NASA contractor. At an apparent chance meeting at a roadside diner, Dave explains his personal theories on humor and the ungettable joke to Bill, a high school math teacher. They wonder whether they have been pushed together by greater forces to discover the ultimate joke, a joke so funny that everyone laughs, but no one knows why. The main characters don "t have long to consider this question. The greater forces at work evidently don "t want them to discover the ungettable joke by sitting around and talking about it. Supernatural events continue to force the characters into action and an adventure they might prefer to avoid. They seek aid from an eccentric college professor, an archeologist who tells the story of an ancient Indian tribe, the Chimchuk, whose culture revered humor above all else. The professor, who seems to have an agenda of his own, is interested in a Chimchuk symbolic inscription Dave and Bill obtained. He is also obsessed with a certain Chimchuk artifact -- an amulet made in three pieces. The professor possesses only one piece, his enemy another, and the third is missing. The professor's enemy is a man who appears to be the leader of a cult that is based on Chimchuk culture. He claims to have special powers, drawn from his piece of the amulet, and convinces his followers that he can channel the spirit of the original crafter of the amulet, the great Chimchuk shaman and head joke-teller, Manash. Underlying the main plot, Dave is engaged to be married very soon, and the FBI has become involved due to suspected illicit drug activity in the Chimchuk cult. The interests of all concerned converge at a small town at the entrance to the Giant Sequoia National Park. There, the amulet, the cult, the FBI, and the pursuit of the ungettable joke come together in a Chimchuk cultural festival. The cult leaders at the festival intend to demonstrate the power of the amulet to the new Chimchuk nation. The wild scene and conclusion that follows reveal the realities behind the events, history, and meaning of all that took place, and points to a link between science and faith, seen and unseen, and what humor has to do with it.

Isn't That Clever

A Philosophical Account of Humor and Comedy

Isn't That Clever provides a new account of the nature of humor - the cleverness account - according to which humor is intentional conspicuous acts of playful cleverness. By defining humor in this way, answers can be found to longstanding questions about humor ethics (Are there jokes that are wrong to tell? Are there jokes that can only be told by certain people?) and humor aesthetics (What makes for a good joke? Is humor subjective?). In addition to humor in general, Isn't That Clever asks questions about comedy as an art form such as whether there are limits to what can be said in dealing with a heckler and how do we determine whether one comedian has stolen jokes from another.

Now available in paperback—with a new preface and interview with Jessica Livingston about Y Combinator! Founders at Work: Stories of Startups' Early Days is a collection of interviews with founders of famous technology companies about what happened in the very earliest days. These people are celebrities now. What was it like when they were just a couple friends with an idea? Founders like Steve Wozniak (Apple), Caterina Fake (Flickr), Mitch Kapor (Lotus), Max Levchin (PayPal), and Sabeer Bhatia (Hotmail) tell you in their own words about their surprising and often very funny discoveries as they learned how to build a company. Where did they get the ideas that made them rich? How did they convince investors to back them? What went wrong, and how did they recover? Nearly all technical people have thought of one day starting or working for a startup. For them, this book is the closest you can come to being a fly on the wall at a successful startup, to learn how it's done. But ultimately these interviews are required reading for anyone who wants to understand business, because startups are business reduced to its essence. The reason their founders become rich is that startups do what businesses do—create value—more intensively than almost any other part of the economy. How? What are the secrets that make successful startups so insanely productive? Read this book, and let the founders themselves tell you.
