A very good article by Jakob Nielsen on information pollution and the possibility of IM following email footsteps.

A pretty good article on the difference between Windows and Unix programmers.
A pretty scathing article about the rise of the admininstrators in the development process. I confess a weak spot for this – I empathize more with the developers here…
Clarke is one of my favorite writers, and this is a pretty interesting interview. Interesting enough that I’ll forgive his incorrect derivation of the word “boot” as in “boot a computer”.
My understanding of the correct derivation goes something like this: the computer needs some initial code to even know how to begin loading the operating system and figure out how to execute programs. This is seemingly a logical impossibility, similar to pulling onself up by one’s bootstraps, and so computers are said to be “booted”.
