Notes from Howard's Sabbatical from Working. The name comes from a 1998 lunch conversation. Someone asked if everything man knew was on the web.

It doesn't show up in the first 50 Google results (this blog is finally first for that search), AskJeeves says it's: red.

The extended interview with Elizabeth Warren was also good.
