Seattle, My Love

Well now I’m all teary-eyed about Seattle. I had to find another site about the city. I especially like the directions:

Just hate it. It’s always so sunny and bluey-skiey here. We get something like 300+ days of sunshine here, and it really ticks me off.

So today I woke up to see these nice grey clouds rolling in over the mountains. By mid-morning they’d descended upon us, and I thought we had the makings of a perfectly lovely day. I spent a few hours locked away in my basement here at the office, and when I finally emerged, what did I see? It was all sunny and bluey-skiey again. Now, that pretty much screwed up my mood for the day. And on a Friday, even.

It warms my heart to know that this kind of writing will be on the shelf next to “Learn FrontPage in 24 hours!” We’re slowly hammering the point home.

Something tells me that this article is going to be better recevied than Jakob Nielsen’s “Flash: 99% Bad

Ooh ooh ooh

I think this page is hands-down, the single best web-related thing I’ve seen a major corporation do all year.
