Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Probably only Steve and I notice the subtle and constant change on my home page. Years ago it just said something like "I'm Sumana and you should read Crummy", but now it's a huge human-readable bookmarks file.
Joel says some interesting and useful things, but he's so condescending and dismissive (even when campaigning against programmer arrogance) that he sets my teeth a-grittin'. I'll spare you my nose-blowing rants.
Kenny Byerly best captured the Modern Humorist vibe: "Did you think that was funny? What if there were a shirt? Would you buy the shirt? There's a shirt for sale, click right here, will you buy it?" A few erudite lines in every article, but the site's QuickTime/sound/ads-intensive and seldom updated. For worthwhile material, try the Editors' Picks or submit your own.
