Paul Ford's Ftrain
has a great piece on Micrsoft Word, writing, and the web. His stream-of-consciousness essay has hilarious nuggets like the "computer science axiom 'all software expands until it can send mail.'" There's a couple illustrations worth noting: the first
looks like Word with all
the tool bar icons enabled, and the other
is Word's paperclip assistant interfering with an especially private moment. Great stuff.
