Wonderful World of Words

I don't remember when I lost track of Michael Quinion's WWW
but I rediscovered it this morning. Back in the "early days" of home pages (the forerunner of blogs) the pages that offered regular fresh content were not as wide spread as they are today. The modern content management systems have really helped out the old home page.

Anyway I used to check his page at least once a week even when I was subscribed to his news letter. Seems there was always a treat to be found there. The WWW is a seven plus year collection of essays on the English language. Michael is a fine writer and entertaining individual. If you don't know about this site you do now. Don't get lost there, it is a web fixture and you can visit anytime you like. I have added a link Suprise Me to his random article feed. He has xml and rdf feeds for those so inclined. Enjoy
