The paper, likely to be called The New York Sun, will be edited by former Forward editor in chief Seth Lipsky along with his protégé, Ira Stoll, the editor of, a Web site known for its critiques of The New York Times. has assembled what is basically a best/worst internet practices (what they called "good and bad contingency design"): Design Not Found.

 What ever happened to Mondo 2000? R. U. Sirius recounts. Wait, what ever happened to R. U. Sirus? He's back. Who cares? The SF Gate does.

 Steven Johnson (founder of Feed) has a new book out, Emergence, and this quote from a interview sounds like a replica of the thesis of the book I was writing:
