It’s better than real – it’s a real imitation
Jeremy Zawodny on what’s wrong with email.
I’m glad he wrote it so I don’t have to.
This quote shall henceforce be my personal credo:
If you leave it up to me to figure out exactly what you mean, I’m
always going to choose the one I most like.
Update: This article
shows that the
problem is worse than just top-posting.
An entire educational industry has developed to offer remedial
writing instruction to adults, with hundreds of public and private
universities, for-profit schools and freelance teachers offering
evening classes as well as workshops, video and online courses in
business and technical writing.
Isn’t this a pretty bad grade for the American school system?
“E-mail has just erupted like a weed, and instead of considering
what to say when they write, people now just let thoughts drool out
onto the screen,” Hogan said. “It has companies at their wits’ end.”
Open up the music player on your computer.
Set it to play your entire music collection.
Hit the “shuffle” command.
Tell us the title of the next ten songs that show up (with their
musicians), no matter how embarrassing. That’s right, no skipping
that Carpenters tune that will totally destroy your hip
credibility. It’s time for total musical honesty. Write it up in
your blog or journal and link back to at least a couple of the
other sites where you saw this.
If you get the same artist twice, you may skip the second (or
third, or etc.) occurances. You don’t have to, but since randomness
could mean you end up with a list of ten song with five artists,
you can if you’d like.
This is my list:
- Kelly Clarkson, Walk Away
- Ragnarok, Et Vinterland i Nord
- Suzanne Vega, Those Whole Girls
- Badly Drawn Boy, Take The Glory
- Suzanne Vega, The Queen and the Soldier
- Lars Demian, Det manliga beteendet
- Stiff Little Fingers, At The Edge
- Julie Roberts, Pot of Gold
- Avril Lavigne, Forgotten
- Curve, Doppelganger
Via Rui, he got it
