And He Can Cook Too

Written by Matthew Oliphant on June 23, 2005

An Argument Against the Network?

Written by Mike Rundle on June 22, 2005

Matthew Pennell posted an entry titled “Them and Us” at his weblog which detailed how he was very much anti-9rules and what we’re trying to accomplish. Is he right? Are we the Evil Empire™?

9rules is trying to showcase the best content on the web, regardless of if the content is in a wiki, a weblog, a website, or anything else.
