A creative argument

A creative argument.
I love The Register, the offbeat British tabloid with an eye on technology and the like. If you’ve not become a fan already, you will be with just one reading. They’re now embroiled in an argument with a New York Times writer over who created the T-shirt, “My job went to India and all I got was this lousy T-shirt.” The Register claims they coined the phrase. The Times says it came from a T-shirt company in Palo Alto. The Register offers a daily email, which is regular reading for me. Their articles on the war between the recording industry and its customers have been fact-filled and hilarious at the same time, and it was through The Register that I learned of the downsides of Britain’s technological war on speeders, when one of their radar cameras clocked a Volvo going in excess of 400mph. If only we could have such fun with the news.
