April Fools on the web is always a great deal of fun. This year, there were some good ones. My favorites (ranked in order):
- Boring Boring parody of Boing Boing
- Google Gulp brain enhancer
- My previously mentioned Scientific American editors note in which SciAm gives up.
- 43 Folders’ April Power Hacks from Merlin Mann
- April Fools EFFector, the EFF gives their take on the state of the world via a nice bit of satire.
- ScreenCleanerPro as reviewed on MacWorld
- Stricter Whitespace Enforcement in Python 2.5
