Test Pattern is a new

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 10, 2000

Test Pattern is a new site by a Minneapolitan Scott Wenner. I met Scott a couple of weeks ago and didn’t know it. He didn’t know it either. In retrospect, that’s pretty funny (no, it’s not).

You can make the words in the phrase “it is not” into a contraction in two ways: “it’s not” and “it isn’t”. Which one is preferred? Should there be a third version: “it’sn’t”? I’m assuming that version would be pronounced to sound like something close to the sound a bug makes when hitting one of those bug zappers.
