I’ve often wondered what a top-side view of the evolution of Internet/information technology over the past 15 years would look like (well, not often, but sometimes I think about it). A Very Short list clued me into this handy chart, made by a motley crew of tech junkies at places like Google and GOOD, which tackles that very topic. To paraphrase the lovely ladies of En Vogue, it’s time for a (web browser/application/search engine) breakdown.

This weekend’s a big one here in New York City. Lots of Southerners will be donning Lilly-or-louder dresses and ties, freshly laundered seersucker suits, and royal wedding–worthy hats to celebrate the annual running of the ponies at Churchill Downs. In Manhattan, folks will be gathering at Eleven Madison Park, Smack Mellon, and all of the other great locations throughout the five boroughs that serve heavily-liquored-sweating-cold mint juleps.
But we’re not the only ones. In fact, I won’t even be in the city this weekend. I’ll be down in South Carolina celebrating the lovely ladies in my family, and watching the Derby with some hometown friends. Where will you be gathering this Saturday? Please tell me how you celebrate the Kentucky Derby in style. And send pictures! I’ll be posting a gallery of the best shots on my Garden & Gun blog, Southern in the City, next week.
