Meta Top 10
End of year lists. Love 'em or hate 'em, they're all around us. With lists ranging from politics to pop culture, from technology to trivia, and from thoroughly worthless to merely time-squandering, readers can't be blamed for succumbing to ranking fatigue. Mercifully, I've done the legwork for you, enabling you to enjoy only the best of these meticulously cataloged countdowns.
It's my great honor and terrible burden to present the Suitably Flip 2005 Definitive Top 10 Top 10 Lists (and their respectively excerpted number ones):

8. New Media Musings' Top 10 Tech Transformations
- The edges gain power.

The forces of freedom are steadily chipping away at the power of the forces of control. It's pure beauty.
