5/30/01 What do “F(a,kow,tL)S-/A-DBG,” the House on the Rock, and “Usonian” have in common?

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

I’m a little behind. There are a couple things in my head I’ve been meaning to put here but I just haven’t had the time. One such thing is this: Woo-hoo! I won the F(a,kow,tL)S-/A-DBG! I was sent a free book in the mail last week. Completely, genuinely free. How? Easy — I won a […]

5/22/01 A win for the little guy

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Here’s good news. The Baltimore Ravens tried to steal a guy’s idea, and he didn’t let them — to the tune of $10,000,000. The man deserves to have his share of the benefits of his creativity, no matter what his education level or professional standing. Clearly, the NFL team thought otherwise.

5/18/01 NEW(e)S(t)

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Reorg part II: There is no longer a “news/newest” section on this site…. I thought the name NEW(e)S(t) was clever, but to others I think it was confusing. New ALA today. Zeldman is also developing a new, somewhat intriguing project called Independents Day: it will be a worldwide event “celebrating independent content and design from […]

5/17/01 “Backflip” was a proto-social bookmarking site

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Reorg: Here’s what I have done to the site today. I’ve separated out the increasingly unwieldy anti-blog into palatable, bite-size, month-long chunks. Sure makes it look like I haven’t done much. I’m also about to interweave the “news/newest” section entries into these entries. There’s no sense having two essentially identical sections. In web news, uh… […]

5/16/01 comics comment

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Let’s build a bridge to, like, the year 2000 or something: Fresher and more human than Tom Tomorrow’s This Modern World, it’s Lloyd Dangle’s Troubletown! Seriously, both are great weekly comics that comment on today’s society, from a position with which I am largely sympathetic.

5/12/01 RIP, DNA

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

RIP, DNA: I had no plans to post today. However, this came as a hard punch to the gut: British author Douglas Adams has died at only 49, of a heart attack. At the risk of admitting how deeply nerdy I am, Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy [pick it up at your local independent […]

5/10/01 Andre the Giant has a posse

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

OBEY: I had been curious about this. Andre the Giant (may he rest in peace) apparently has a posse. [Through BLK/MRKT from DiK again.]

5/8/01 happy birthday, Saul Bass

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Quick one: Today is the anniversary of the birth of Saul Bass. He was a design deity, whose work on film titles was, to me, especially stunning.

5/6/01 consumer angst (or, “gohlkus the purist”)

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

I actually did something on April 21st that coincides with my mostly anti-corporate political views — I participated in the peaceful 2,000-strong anti-FTAA protest in St. Paul. It was a good experience and I’m glad I was there. I’m also glad there were others on the front lines, [found on DiK] and I salute them. […]

5/5/01 flagging enthusiasm?

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

So why haven’t I updated this site in almost a month? It’s not so much that my enthusiasm for keeping this site updated is flagging, though that is part of it. I think it’s safe to say that it’s been easy to get burned out on this site. I spent a ton of time last […]
