Work’s busy at the moment so blogging will definitely be light for the next couple of weeks.
In a final burst of activity here are’re a couple of good tidbits of enws fro a Monday morning:
- UK tech PR gossip blog …theworldsleading… has set-up shop on it’s own website [screenshot above]. You can find the new jazzy site at www.theworldsleading.net. The interesting news is that they may ditch their RSS feed claiming:
“It seems to have the same effect as bouncers; repelling intelligent people while attracting sink estate vermin donning black slip-on shoes and gelled hair. We’re thinking fuck RSS, fuck Technorati and fuck all those two-bob ‘influence surveys.’ We’d lose points for not having RSS, but perhaps we’ll lose the undesirables too?”
- Hugh MacLeod has posted about why he thinks we’re all blogging less. Hugh cites one reason for less blogging as:
“Some of us have better things to do than continually having to justify ourselves to a crowd of self-loathing, passive-aggressive, loser fucktards.”
Which is, I suppose, a less roundabout way of agreeing with …TWL…‘s comments above.
- As neat and timely counter-balance to Hugh’s argument, B.L. Ochman comes up with her views of why Reports of Blogging’s Death Are Greatly Exaggerated.
