P.S. I hate the word "schwag" too.
The Web hasn't been hyped enough. It is changing our culture's basic concepts, our metaphysics.Thanks Kottke.
Why do we insist on developing web pages for tasks that may be better served by leveraging an application native to the OS (and familiar UI) ... ?Also, this thread discussing readable line lengths on the web is worth a read for any web developer/designer.

Until two years ago, Philly.com, the online version of the Philadelphia Inquirer, was saddled with a primitive content-management system that required editors and site producers to do lots of coding and to depend on cumbersome drag-and-drop technology to handle archiving.

David Neale, Me, David Daniel, David Harrington
You see, if you look at the full picture (we're on the far right bottom) you'll see that many people stole highway and road signs from road #1989 so they could hold them up as our class picture was snapped, thereby declaring their unparalleled school spirit and class pride. As a gentle mockery, and as a part of an ongoing fascination with the 1960's that my friends and I shared, we stole the sign for road #1965 and attired ourselves LIKE AS IF WE WERE THE BEATLES!!!!!
I'm sure others will be more intrigued that those other Beatles are all named David.
Others will notice I am wearing flip-flops, as was the fashion of the day.
Others will click here in the hopes of finding something worthwhile to read.
PS- my favorites teas of now: Goldentip in the day, and Lapsang Souchong at night.
