Yay, we’ve won!

We’re Time magazine’s Person of the Year 2006. I guess folks at Time appreciate a perfectly formed posterior as much as the rest of us.

Though… I think that isn’t what they intended…

You see the Time Magazine Person of the Year 2006 is “You”. Or “Us” from our point of view, or you from yours. Confused yet?

They were honoring the likes of Bloggers, YouTube filmmakers (except those pirating Warner Bros TV shows and movies likely), and those poor souls that braved permanent damage by Yahoo in managing get pics listed on Flickr.

Death by Yahoo… Yahooed… Verb it, and it has a whole different connotation to Googled…

Still, although folks at Time haven’t necessarily honored this blog in particular, I do like to think of them as fans. They (as their Warner Bros distribution co) did bring Terminator 3 to the World. This movie being one example of assartistry.

Sometimes I seriously wonder about the new Firefox spell checking ability. From which century did they pull the dictionary? It recognizes very few words from the past 10 years. The thing that brought this up though was that it doesn’t recognize “Yahoo”.

Odd, because it is not only the name of a company that sort-of-one-time-did-some-sort-of -indexing-searchy-thing-but-now does-godknowswhat…

…something-to-do-with-peanut-butter….

seemingly…

A Yahoo is also a word coined by Swift in the early 18th Century. A more apt name for the company that bears it doesn’t exist. I have said that before, but it needs repetition.

So it seems that Firefox must be using a dictionary from a time prior to about 1720…

Odd.
