Self-Refererential Writing

I am accustomed to going to some of my early books from the 1980s to check facts (and confirm my memory). Yesterday, however, I took self-reference to the next level.

I was doing a keyword search in a ProQuest article database, on an Internet topic. A title caught my eye, so I selected the article and began reading it. It had exactly the information I needed. "This is pretty good," I said to myself.

Then it began to look familiar. I zipped up to the top of the article and, sure enough, it was something I'd written years ago!--Mike
