I Before E

We all learned in school, “I before E, except after C, or when sounded like A, as in ‘neighbor’ or ‘weigh’.” That rule stuck in my brain somewhere around seventh grade, and has served me in good faith for many years. So why is the word “weird” so weird? Shouldn’t it be “wierd“? But of course, if you spell it that way, it looks weird.

Woz Joins Danger

Remember the HipTop PDA/phone I mentioned last week? It seems that The Woz has joined the board of directors for Danger, Inc. That’s all the endorsement I need.

If I Was a James Bond Villian….
