A pragmatic suggestion for sombunall

On at least some of the laptop computers that I used for reading articles on the Internet, the type can seem rather small -- an obstacle for reading long articles such as some of the pieces listed in the "Feature Articles and Interviews" section on the right side of the page.

When I am reading a long article, I often find it useful to use Readability, a free browser app that blows up the type for an article and eliminates much of the distractions (such as advertising). (I don't have any tie with the Readability folks and I gain nothing by pointing you to it -- it's just a useful tool I sombunall of you might be interested in.)

Somebunall is the term Robert Anton Wilson coined for "some but not all." You can read an explanation of the term at Michael Johnson's recent blog post, "Somebunall Philosophical Problems," which I just used Readability to read. (But you'll have to hit the back button on your browser to watch the video Michael posts.)
