Features, Office In a June 2003 Wired Magazine interview, Martha Stewart said, "Bill Gates' house, for example, is totally out of date now. He built it right before wireless happened. The big tunnels for all his wires - he doesn't need any of that stuff anymore." The article wasn't about networking, or even technology, but I was struck by that statement because it was echoed by several people when I was explaining that I was running many thousands of feet of cable in OSNews' "house of the future." "Is all that cable really necessary now that there's wireless everything?" people said. As much as I respect Martha Stewart's business and design acumen, neither she, nor those people who talked to me, know what they're talking about. When it comes to networking, there's no substitute for a wire, when a wire's available. -- This is the latest entry in our 2008 Article Contest.

Am I the only one asking myself "What the hell is this guy doing reading anything related to Martha Stewart?"

I'm scared that I'm going to come back to this site tomorrow and find it decorated with pastel colors and floral patterns, icons that look like little lace doilies and articles full of recipe tips for memorial day weekend.

The apocalypse is upon us. The dark horseman is leaving a wide swath of destruction and devastation wherever it goes, and it's name it Martha. Get out while you can or you will find yourself wearing polo shirts and khaki pants with *shudder* pleats!

In my defense, the article was in Wired. It snuck up on me!
