How we laughed. We spotted a story in the business section of yesterday's Observer (19 March) about Lastminute.com finding itself in legal hot water courtesy of a German travel agency. The story had been broken, the Absurder said, by "Silicon.com, the online IT industry news bible". The whole thing read as though the Sunday paper swallowed a Silicon press release in full (even if Jon Bernstein's name was spelt wrong). Still, it gave us pause for thought. Silicon is the Bible? What does that make us – the karma sutra of the IT news industry perhaps? The Bible – everyone knows what it is, but most people don't read it anymore. Some people believe it is the word of God, others think it's a work of fiction. We're also not sure where in Genesis the creation of silicon (or even sand for that matter) gets a mention, but we're not theologists and are ready to have that pointed out to us. ®
