Two interesting and interrelated links came up today. The first, Joel On Software, is written by a software developer and CEO of FogCreek Software. It's a pretty good read for anyone technical or interested in the sausage factory of software development. (It's not always pretty but the end result is usually tasty).
But the thing that caught my eye, which I wanted to relay, was a link to CatalogChoice. I'd seen similar websites that contact catalog companies and unsubscribe you from their paper mail, but this was the first free one. It's sponsored by several foundations. The main paper mail I'm trying to get rid of are those persistent coupon foldovers; we'll see how it works.
