If you're not failing every now and again, it's a sign you're not doing anything very innovative.
— Woody Allen
We have 23 excellent weblog entries to read this week, and, as I exhort you to do every week, put aside your work, grab a cup of coffee, and take some time to check out this fine reading. Remember, most of these writers pretty much work for free, so pay them in comments. It makes a blogger happy.
