I once was the recipient of a rather long and imaginative conversation
from someone who saw a logo on my T-shirt and wanted to share his
notions of the state of the world of software.  This spirited transit
rider seemed to think that the corporations backing the existing
proprietary software market need only infiltrate the vibrant and
talkative discussion community of Slashdot in order to bring Free
Software to its knees.

Based on his theories, I could only conclude that these nefarious forces
succeeded nearly a decade ago.  We're doomed!

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.
