Outside Magic has an interesting take on the Everest reports:
It's Everest a-go-go right now, with numerous teams of highly disciplined Himalayan mountaineers constantly updating their web sites by satellite phone from Base Camp.
You know the stuff; 'Hey! Dave Weatherballoon of the SuperCorp Inc. 2002 Everest Expedition from base camp. Hey, I'm looking out of my tent here and I can tell you that Everest is real big and covered in snow. There are lots of tents here and people. Last night the cook dished up some real good rice and chicken. It is real cold here. Tomorrow we are going to sit in our tent and update the web site. Thanks to SuperCorp for making the whole thing possible... etc'
