  • "There is a better way to build a search engine. And a Silicon Valley start-up company with the unlikely name of is showing the way." (From 1998.)

  • "Taguba's report, however, amounts to an unsparing study of collective wrongdoing and the failure of [U.S.] Army leadership at the highest levels. The picture he draws of [the] Abu Ghraib [prison in Iraq] is one in which Army regulations and the Geneva conventions were routinely violated."

  • "Of course, 'complete' and 'concise' are to some degree in conflict; that's just the way life is. There are very few first drafts that can't be shortened, and usually improved in the process."

  • "Ye Olde Lorem Ipsum Generator, Fortified and extra Strong!"

  • "Run For Your Life! It's the 50 Worst Songs Ever!" (An admirable list, and I agree with #1 wholeheartedly. But where are Paul Young, Terry Jacks, and Dan Hill?)

  • "Having a bland and ugly base is a good thing, in fact. What you may have noticed is that this unformatted HTML looks an awful lot like the web of 1994 (if you were around back then). In fact, with a few notable exceptions, that's what it is."
