Oh my god, it's full of stars

Via Baylink, a 9 foot tall steel monolith appeared in Magnuson Park in Seattle over New Year's Eve. No clues as to the origin, although I wouldn't be surprised if Steve Ballmer is found, femur in hand, beating the crap out of a Windows ME CD...

Snicker. There are a couple of times I lived in the south when we got a reasonable amount of snow that I wish I'd done that... Of course out here amongst the Californicators it wouldn't raise an eyebrow.

Indeed. I wanna know if the people who *say* they put it up are actually the people who *did* put it up... Hey, Dan. You got a tracking number for that board?

Got a clickthrough from this page today.

Linked back and decided to go check out the news stories.

Unsurprisingly, I went 3 for 4 on sites that had expired the news story or reorganized. The fourth site? sluggy.com wouldn't even resolve.

Huh. I just got through to the sluggy.com link no problem.

Not surprised about the other links, I'm amazed at how many newspapers don't get the web. Or maybe I'm not.
