Forbes.com has come out with its Best of the Web for Summer 2004, featuring "over 3,700 sites . . . each rated according to five criteria: Content, Design, Speed, Navigation and Customization." The Technology News section includes the second coming of The Industry Standard, all well and good. From there though, things get wacky:
BEST: The revival of a formerly-highflying brand says comforting things about the state of the economy.
WORST: The site lets you subscribe to RSS feeds, a complicated, XML-related way of reading news which doesn't serve much purpose here.
[Emphasis added.] This seems destined to join Harry M. Warner — on talkies: "Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?" — and others on pages like these dedicated to history's technological visionaries, insert air quotes here.
Spotted via The Standard's Trackback Blog — the first time I've seen someone annotate their trackbacks, which strikes me as visionary sans quotes. (Really. And not just because I've agreed to Guest Blog there soon, something I'm trying pretty hard but unsuccessfully to be blasé about.)
