Another Day

 I'm so proud. I'm smarter than Miss America.

 Does it make me callous that I'd like people to compare the design/interface of different major media news websites' "Special Coverage" pages? | | | | | | (Here's mine, but frankly it's feeble by comparison.)

 A while ago, I used radio to make a point about why free internet content would survive. I made a passing reference to alt-weeklies lending more proof to my theory. OJR has penned the article basically summarizing the points I never got around to making.

 The stories you can be thankful you missed. Condit? Yates? Poundstone? Who?

 I'm going to link to it, even though I haven't read it it yet, cuz I trust it will be interesting: Clay Shirky, "In Defense of Cities."

 Christopher Hitchens can certainly be a bitch, can't he?

 To Howard Zinn: "What would you do if you were president?" The answer.

 Three supposed pacifists who no longer are: 1, 2, 3.

 No one ever could get Conrad right.

 Warning: Geek interface stuff: "Contextual dynamic searching." That's what I'm calling it. I'm intrigued by this sort of web page search that generates "more stories like this one." I noticed that the just added similar functionality, in the "Related Articles" box.

That's wasn't so bad, was it?
