From the Onion to the NYTimes

Do you remember my Point / Counterpoint post from September, where I pitted changes at The Onion against changes at The New York Times? Probably not, but thanks to hyperlinking you can pretend you knew all about it.

Anyway, the New York Times, obviously concerned with my feelings on the matters, took it upon themselves to hire Khoi Vinh from Behavior (via). Mr. Vinh was part of The Onion’s redesign and was no doubt hired to give the Times the same credibility as “America’s Finest News Source.”

I can only take from this acquisition a sense of the immense power that I wield with my blog, and will promise to only use it for good. This will largely be accomplished through posting infrequently about hyper-technical topics, per current operating policy. I also look forward NYTimes.com switching to Drupal.
