While in Paris last weekend, it was only through monumental effort of
will that I resisted going up to all the American tourists taking
indoor and nighttime skyline snapshots and saying:

The insipid neologism "blog" appears to mean little more      Nick Moffitt
than a Web site that *actually* gets updated, as opposed     nick at zork.net
to one that *promises* to be updated REAL SOON NOW and
includes an animation of a MEN AT WORK sign.
