Silly season [dive into mark]

93 month ago

Rod Begbie : Silly season [dive into mark] - Beautiful summation of the current Adobe Apollo/Microsoft Silverlight hype-off from Mark Pilgrim. "That poster may as well be titled "Fucked 6 Ways From Sunday," because that's what you'll be if you buy into any of this." #
