Taking a Selfie
Nice story on a venerable website: Language Log. I like the classic Verdana typesetting and their comments policy, especially the first point:
Be brief. Blog posts may be long or short; blog comments should be short. If you have a lot to say, post it on your own blog and link to it. If you don’t have a blog, you could start one easily (for example here or here). Or you could link to a document that you’ve published on your own web site, or (for example) here.
