Been there, done that times a jillion  JUN 16 2002

How does the old adage go? All possible thought and speech has been thought or spoken? Something like that anyway. The Internet adds an interesting twist by documenting a lot of it for relatively easy reference. The good thing about this is the Internet becomes the lazyweb, a place where "if you wait long enough, someone will write/build/design what you were thinking about"...and I'll add to that "or already has". The downside is the vast Web reminds you that you're not as clever as you think you are. Witness Bill Quick's zeal in claiming the coinage of the word "blogosphere". In fact, Brad Graham of the Bradlands first used the word "blogosphere" way back in September 1999, more than two years before Quick first used it.
