Blog by Sumana Harihareswara, Changeset founder
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2005 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.
A person who just left Salon gave me a small pillow. It had been left here by a previous employee so property rights are sort of nebulous on it (as the Supreme Court would approve). It'll be useful in case I ever have to sleep under my desk again. The last time I did so (election night 2004) I had to make do with promotional t-shirts.
