wayback wednesday: judging the future superficially
I think I like the look of 2008 as a number. There was always something a little unfinished in the appearence of 2007. To my eye, 2007 was unshaven and stumbling around the room like an unsteady drunk. But 2008, man, that's a number that's clearly carved out of a massive piece of marble by some art deco sculptor. 2007 is rickety and would totally break if you stepped on it, but with 2008 is so big and solid that you couldn't even reach the top of it unless you had a helicopter at your disposal.
