Friday July 9, 2004 Rare Opportunity Say something. ❡ I think this is the first time I’ve ever enabled the comment system. — Joel · 9 Jul 2004 ❡ Greetings from germany and congratulations to this very nice site. — Dominik · 9 Jul 2004 ❡ Your site’s too good to have comments enabled. Be gone with them! — walter · 9 Jul 2004 ❡ Good work on the site, Joel. Keep it up. — Josh · 9 Jul 2004 ❡ I like minimalistic designs :) — Riad · 10 Jul 2004 ❡ Cool site Joel. Just thought I’d drop in and say howdy. Good to hear you are still an inhabitant of this fine world. Keep it up! — Spencer Wolf · 12 Jul 2004 ❡ Behold the absurd, hideous beauty of the Buckminster Fuller stamp. That’s all. — Matt Frost · 14 Jul 2004 ❡ Love the site. Where did you find those great illustrations? Are they your drawings or did you find them somewhere? Thanks! — Eddie · 14 Jul 2004 ❡ Deadly trap this is: posts we can’t comment, non-posts that we can. I love this thing. Can we hear the mini-disc sometime ? (arrh! fell in the trap) — mickael · 14 Jul 2004 ❡ Walter: I tend to agree :) Matt: Zounds! Eddie: the pictures are mostly culled from a spot illustration book, but are not public domain. Mickael: Sometime, yes, I’ll post some sound files. Thanks for the good word everybody. May the ink in your pen never jam or leak. — Joel · 17 Jul 2004 Add to the original piece by submitting your note below. Think of yourself as a co-author on the piece above and write accordingly.

Published notes will be included in the blog and sent to email and RSS subscribers, as well as being added to this page. If you prefer, write up your thoughts on your own blog, and submit a short note with a link to your post (we also support webmentions for this). Or if someone else has already made a good argument you agree with, submit a short note with a link. We’ll almost always publish these kinds of notes, as long as the posts they link to are relevant. If making claims, cite sources wherever possible. It’s never too late to submit a note. Notes are often added to posts several years old.
