IronTulips has white text on a black background. D**m hard to read and d**m harder to take seriously.
I mean, stories like XYZ CAD Corp. Takes the Lead in Announcing Its Leadership may be accurate but are hardly dull.
Its editor makes this claim: "Fact-based news and analysis about Information Technology is so last century. IronTulips offers the better story." Sure, but what if you weren't born in the last century? Maybe there's point there, but I doubt it.
And then it becomes even more implausible: "This blog is our preview; watch for our grand debut at www.irontulips.com on April 1, 2006." A blog that's a preview for site that doesn't exist until April Fool's Day? Seems hard to believe. At least it's in this century.
And covered with ads. You get the impression someone's out to make money off this venture. The gall of some self-styled CAD editors.
Well, if you can't beat 'em, join my good friend Randall Newton as he releases his frustration pent up from daily exposure to technological claims made by technologically-illiterate PR firms. I know; I joined him in penning the aforementioned industry-leading piece on XYZ CAD. Enjoy.
Unless you don't get irony. Or satire. In which case, you may be an American.
