Why? Seth Godin published a blog post today which actually sums it up perfectly:
Exceeding expectations (or don't bother)
Today, as you've no doubt discovered, is April Fools, the official holiday of the web.
I had, as I do every year, a fools post written and queued up. (It was about JD Salinger and the Dalai Lama as twitter users.) It was good, not great.
So I posted nothing.
I couldn't exceed my (or your) expectations, so I posted nothing.
That's a brave thing to do and a good feeling as well. Next time all you have is 'good', try nothing on for size.
as far as a running update: I'm slightly sick. for 3 weeks now. makes running hard, so I've pretty much taken these three weeks off.
