What makes Daring Fireball an efficient and effective soapbox is exactly that it is not noisy. My goal is for not a single wasted word to appear anywhere on any page of the site. … It’s my firm belief that all websites eventually attract the attention and respect that they deserve.

Read the full post, please. I recommend it.

Very, very good.

UPDATE: Reflecting on his admirable ‘not a single wasted word’ philosophy (which I respect, even if I don’t always live up to it) I recalled the ‘dicknose’ T shirt pic of Gruber I saw at 9to5mac … which got me to thinking about a really cool shirt I saw the lovely Calli Lewis of geekbrief.tv wearing once … (In case you can’t read it, it says ‘With a shirt like this who needs pants?’)

Yeah, I find these funny. I have wide streak of geek in me. (So sue me.)
