My friend Steve* has written some awesome things on work-internal blogs internally -- check out his "drunken blog rants" for a great source of content -- but it never occurred to me to see if he had a blog externally. But he does! Go read. Steve is awesome. Each of his posts are small novels.
(Ah, I see this is new as of a few weeks ago. That explains it. But somehow he has over a hundred comments on some of his posts already...)
* I mostly know Steve through email. I think we've only met once. But he at least comes across as a swell (if very opinionated) guy in text.
