BLOGMA 2001’s INITIAL AIM IS TO CIRCUMVENT A CERTAIN EVIL trend that has crept into our once-great weblogging culture: the “celebrity” blogger (…) This campaign is targeted at the new bourgeoisie, who even now tag themselves the “A-list” and revel in the circlejerking vacuosness that marks their bilious output. This is an affront to every true weblogger (…) These decadents, however, have nothing better to do than talk about themselves, and whatever new status symbol they’ve acquired. Let¡s point out a prime example, shall we?
Kottke on the tenth of November: ” I have completed my quest for a laptop bag. I decided on the Kensington Saddlebag. It has a padded compartment for my laptop, all sorts of neat pockets for Palms, phones, etc.”
Need I say more?
