As one by-product of more than a decade writing about the Internet, I've generated a considerable portfolio of humorous stuff about the Internet, Unix, computers and other topics, including essays, song parodies, and other what-not.

Articles, Etc.

Holiday humor: My quasi-annual end-of-year visits to the "North Pole Toy Works" and my conversations with its president & CEO, "Pops" Kringle":

  • Santa Steps Out for the Holidays (InformationWeek, December 19, 1992) (Note, what ran in the printed edition had been edited and rewritten without my knowledge or approval. Here it is the way I originally wrote it. Grump!)
  • "If You've Been Good, Press One" (A shorter version of this appeared in InformationWeek, December 24/31, 1990.)
  • "From Prancer to LANserver" (Information Week, December 18, 1989)
  • "Even Santa Gets Those MIS Blues" (Information Week, December 19, 1988)
  • "...Not a computer was stirring, not even a mouse" (ComputerWorld, December 22, 1986)

Internet Song Parodies

Internet, Unix and computer-related songs to the familiar tunes of Gilbert & Sullivan, Cole Porter, and the like. (My song parodies have their own web page.)
