This started out as a blog post on Underdogs Bite Upwards, currently a Wordpress blog. It seems to have aged quite well. It’s now over seven years old but still gets a link on Twitter and on other blogs from time to time. I thought it might be worth making it into a free eBook rather than have people search an obscure blog for ancient posts. That way you can pass it around in eBook format freely.
