My acquaintance (he would probably object if I called him my friend) Matt Elton has put up as absolutely fantastic website. Coming from an inveterate web-snob like me, this is no small praise. The design is somewhat screwy and ad-hoc, but content is clearly king, and his content is clearly very good. It tends towards the amusing, with breaks for the philosophical, somewhat like this site used to be before I decided that being geeky was much more fun. He has inspired me to start writing humour again -- or attempting it. He uses Dreamweaver to do the actual web development, which explains most of the bugginess (for instance the amusing fact that all his external links are just plain text :-) But obviously you can't have good content and superior design, can you? Also, he has very cleverly mentioned both this site and and me on his site, which clearly begets a reciprocal link or two.
And oi, Matt, I wrote an article about science vs religion first.
