SPAM Boosted in the UK

I just read it in Steven Pinker's Stuff of Thought and quickly looked up the details on the web.

The word SPAM is derived from SPiced hAM, a cheap luncheon meat, and the word's popularity got boosted by the following great Monty Python sketch.

Yeah!
The year starts off with some good news:

Even before, there's gonna be the Singapore version on May 16-18.

Oops, sorry.
I think this has been the longest period in which I haven't posted anything.
I am (and the blog is) still alive and possibly gaining a new author, soon.
We'll see.
Stay tuned in 2008.
