INFOCOM Memorial Page

I'm really not sure how many people will care but this is a memorial page put up to the company which put out some of the best text-based adventure games in the 1980s. (Does "Zork" ring a bell?)

Buy Curious

A gleefully mocking look through the Amazon back catalog. I guess its creators decided they had better things to do than bring joy and laughter to thousands of people but if you're looking for a really dead site along the same lines, you can always try Brains4Zombies.

Dating from 2002-2003, this was one of those few "link to an article and comment on it" blogs that was actually funny and insightful. Again, sadly missed.

The Washingtonienne

Yes, the original Washington intern blog or at least a screenshot of it. Jessica Cutler has a new site now and you can find an excellent breakdown of the whole affair at The Calico Cat.

Instructions to the Double

Time moves fast on the internet but this is the blog written by the nanny, who was then written about by her employer in the New York Times. You remember that, don't you? Anyway, I was surprised to see both blog and article were still up, but anyway, you can judge for yourself...
