Some misguided fools might say I’m phoning it in today by just posting a bunch of links. To them, I would patiently explain that the internet is abuzz with exciting information about topics of interest to readers of this blog, and I’m just making sure all that knowledge gets routed to the right people.
– You’re looking at words right now. You’re converting them from symbols to meaning, and processing that meaning. But are you reading? That’s what the New York Times wants to know.
– If George Orwell were around today, he’d be blogging. Granted, his blog would mostly consist of links to “Which Battlestar Galactica Character Are You?” quiz results, but if not, it might look something like how THIS blog will look like starting August 9th (I found this on Boing Boing, by the way). The Orwell Prize is posting Orwell’s diary entries in blog form exactly 70 years to the day after he posted (or, as they used to say, “wrote”) them in diary form.
– Special bonus question: Which Battlestar Galactica character WOULD George Orwell be?
