Stating the Obvious turns five AUG 01 2000
Stating the Obvious turns five years old today....meaning that Michael was out there publishing good content on the Web before Suck. Before Suck. StO was one of the first sites I saw that really grabbed me by the neck and shook me around (and that was a good thing). Indeed, my first live Web site back in 1995 was *heavily* influenced by Stating the Obvious, as were many others at that time and afterwards. This may sound like a bit of over-exaggeration, but all of you people out there publishing tech- & culture-related content (I'm looking at you, webloggers) owe a small debt of gratitude to StO and Michael. So, Michael, thank you and congratulations.
