Top 25 Silicon Florist posts for May 2009

I don’t know about you, but it seems that lately we’ve been flying through the content here at the ol’ Silicon Florist. Tons of stuff happening. Some of it good. Some of it bad.

I’m not egotistical enough to think that you’re hanging on every word I post here—except for you, Mom. So I thought I’d take the opportunity to round up the most popular stories that have been posted to Silicon Florist in May 2009.

Yes, yes. I realize it’s a self-reinforcing technique—the popular stories will get more popular because they’re highlighted. I get that. But just quit overthinking it and enjoy.
