Via Beth at IDBlog, via Peter Merholz, via Caterina:
The fifth sentence.... Far be it for me to pass up a meme. Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 23. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions. [IDblog]

from Matt Ruff's Set This House in Order, which I'm taking on the plane with me to Vienna.

Vienna becomes Nerdistan for a Week. I'm going to Vienna this Thursday for CHI 2004... [Brightly Colored Food]

I leave Friday, arriving in Vienna Saturday, which leaves a couple of days for walking around town before the technical program starts. Don't expect any blogging next week.
