Rezoom.com recently posted an article listing 40 bloggers over the age of 40, saying "Some of the best blogs on the Internet are maintained by people over 40. ReZoom selects 40 of them to prove that teenagers may have always had the Internet, but the generations that came before them know how to use it best." And they listed me!

Actually, they bring up an interesting point. I'm no longer in my 20s (I barely make Rezoom's cut, being only 8% over their lower cutoff age), and therefore no longer tragically hip (yeah, like I ever was), but I still stay more or less on the cutting edge of teh tubes. I knew about podcasting months before any of the undergrads with whom I used to work in California, for example. And... um... well, that's the only example I can think of right now. Either I'm still not hip or I'm getting senile.

Either way, it's nice to be recognized. Except for one thing. They said:

What's that thing in the sky? Check in on Phil Platt's astronomy blog to see if there's a celestial event underway. This fascinating look at our night sky is informative, philosophical, timely and out of this world.

Sigh. It's not like my name is on every single page of my website. People still misspell it, though. Maybe I should change it! Perhaps to something like Meyers...
