A few weeks ago, Yahoo! launched their [Yodel Anecdotal blog](http://yodel.yahoo.com/). Welcome.
Now when I saw this, I immediately made a strange connection. I’m not sure if it’s funny or ironic or what. Just that a few lightyears and web versions ago, we had exactly the following words at the [SkypeOut web site](http://www.skype.com/products/skypeout/). (The red wobbly line wasn’t part of the original design. It’s my own skillful use of the wonderful Paint program to indicate an important part of text.)
> If this was a perfect world, there’d be no yodelling, we wouldn’t be ashamed of our love handles and everyone would be using Skype to talk for free.
But alas. The world isn’t perfect, that text got nuked, we still need to pay for calls to phones and there’s the Yodel Anecdotal blog now. Go figure. And [read the blog](http://yodel.yahoo.com/), it’s good.
