Michael Swaine

DrDobbsJournal's professional flamer, formerly the Editor-in-Chief of DDJ.

Responsible for the critically acclaimed quote here: StarBucks?.

A soft-spoken, self-effacing, bespectacled gentleman with a top-ten command of irony and an incisive wit. One of those people for whom "the pen is mightier" is not simply a cliche.


Sadly, DrDobbsJournal seems to be going downhill in quality since early 2003. SwainesFlames? is about the only reason I still get excited when a new issue arrives in my mailbox.
