The Quarter Century
In celebration of its 25th anniversary, USA Today is creating 25 top 25 lists. (Link goes to the first one.) They make for pretty interesting reading although I’d have some quibbles here and there. While I can’t argue with Harry Potter on top of the books list, the books list contains only one serious novel (Cold Mountain) and seems awfully skewed towards more recent work. The technology list, likewise, leaves out some obvious but important inventions like electronic fuel injection. Anyway, well worth reading.
