Flock; Unmaintainable Code

Oddly enough, I found this cool Web 2.0 tool by Googling "web 2.0 backlash", and following up the link about the "I hate Flock" blog. Briefly, Flock is a browser that makes a two-way application out of the Web. It gives you one-touch RSS aggregation, bookmarks stored on the Web instead of on your hard drive, social tagging (I think--haven't tried that), and blogging, including a one-click "blog this" button.

The other prize for today came to me via my excellent friend Barry: How To Write Unmaintainable Code. It's by no means new, but it was new to me, and hilarious. Roedy Green excoriates piles of bone-headed practices that would be ludicrous if they weren't so common. I checked: None of my code in there.
