If, for the past three years, you’ve been cryogenically frozen, doing time in that Midnight Express prison, or living inside a Tupperware bowl, you may not know Adam Lisagor. Of course, for any variety of reasons, since you’re seeing this thing you’re theoretically reading right now, the chances are good that you do know him and already enjoy one or more of the properties in his growing empire on a regular basis.
If you do know Sandy, you already know he’s just the best. And, Dan’s wonderful, intimate, hilarious, and uncommonly insightful helicopter tour of the varied terrain of my friend’s complex topography is unmissable. Really. Listen to it. It’s good.
This site is dedicated to informing people about words that are not verbs, even though people misuse them that way. You have to pick one of the non-verbs about which this site knows:
Neat idea. It’s about time computer professionals demand people stop constantly (mis)using words like, “lockdown” and “pickup” as verbs.
Me? My pet peeve is, “pedantic.” I hate when people use that wrong.
As in, “Please permit me a few moments to pedantic your harmlessly imprecise use of this absurdly opaque industry jargon.”
Because, I’m pretty sure that’s not a verb.
And, frankly, an industry as august as IT should never tolerate a semantic holocaust of this proportion without making a web page.
Glad someone’s finally heroing this issue with such infomationifying homepaging.
