This is the most sensible piece of writing on blogs I've seen in quite a while: Steven Berlin Johnson's piece "Five Things All Sane People Agree On About Blogs And Mainstream Journalism (So Can We Stop Talking About Them Now?)" His point number 5 is the linchpin around which my master's thesis turns.

Yes, I especially love this part:

"So here's my proposal: if you're writing an article, a blog post or a master thesis about this issue, and your argument revolves around one or more of these points -- and doesn't add anything else of substance -- STOP WRITING. Pick a new topic. Move on. There's nothing to see here."

Food for thought, eh?

Ah, yes. I was trying to imply that my MAthesis, being aware of this, adds a fuckload of substance. So that's cool.

My word verification today is: boxes.

BOXES? Wtf does that mean? Are we being put in boxes? We're all leaving in boxes? What?
