On the Internet the term colophon is frequently used as a way of acknowledging those shoulders upon which this web site stands on. It's a way of thanking, footnoting, referring, providing authority or perhaps even passing on the blame.
Here are few of the many shoulders this web site kneels on and why:
- blogging service that charges no fee to host a domain or edit the style sheet or mask out any of its ugly bits
- procedural 3d-like graphics
- Dr Hans Rosling and Google Motion Charts
- Thanks Abe
- Thanks Henrik
- Thanks Mike & Kurt
More sites and more "why's" coming. Should we look at your site?
