While Mr. Newton wears three hats (or more), what's special about him is that he excels in all three. Truly gravity defying!
His blog is a sheer pleasure to read. It's not just his wit or his command of the English language, but also his sense of style that is very impressive. Take this recent post for example. I loved the way he ended it.
I recommend you subscribe to his webfeed as I have. You may just learn something new, in a new and interesting way.
