Serial intern

So in order to be considered for an internship at A List Apart, you have to explain your views on the serial comma.



Honestly, I didn’t know there were more than one point of view. I didn’t know the object of the dispute had a name. At first I thought they were meant as a joke, but I guess not. Maybe it’s a test, to have people look through the articles at ALA and grok what Zeldman likes?



For the record, I like the serial comma, even though we don’t have them in Danish.

I guess they wanted to emulate the perennial "Please implement a quicksort in C", but for grammar.
