If you’re a fan of The IT Crowd, you’ve probably fantasized about playing the same trick on your co-workers as Roy and Moss play on Jen. The good news is, now you can.
The internet is fucking amazing. I’m sure you already knew that, but the gravity of just how fucking awesome it is smacked me across the face this week in a way it hasn’t in a long time.
Infographics are hot right now, and I couldn’t be happier. Data visualization has always been fascinating to me, so much so that I was featured in FastCompany Magazine in February talking about how much I love it. (Yeah, I know. Pathetically shameless plug. Get over it.)

Fortunately, it’s a little easier for folks these days.
This is just a quickie note to let you know about a new site I’ve published, called My Tweets Are My Own, or MTAMO.
Sad you don’t have an iPhone4 yet? Don’t feel bad – write an NES-themed haiku, and you might win a super-cool NES iPhone 3G/3GS skin.
