Just like you seeing this thread and not moving on? I never complained about the rights of others, so don't pull things out of thin air. I guess blogging is just part of our sick society that you choose not to conform to...

That makes sense to me...

I guess there must also be a little voyeurism and exhibitionism involved in some cases.

If I had to venture a guess, I'd say that the vast majority of the crappy blogs out there are a way for useless douchebags to feel important. "Andrew Sullivan has a blog. So do I. Therefore, I'm in the same arena as Andrew Sullivan". Etc. See, in this here series of tubes we call teh interwebz, there's no real filter for quality at a base level. It's no more difficult to access a blog by a nobel laureate as it is a blog by some nerdlinger living in his parents' basement blogging about the latest episode of battlestart gacraptica. At least, when you go into a bookstore, you can expect a base level of filtering, considering that it's more difficult to get published. There's just very easy entry access in the blogosphere (yes, I f*cking HATE that word, I use it ironically).

well, here is a reason to blog....FREE DINNER. I just got this email from a company that I lease a server from. I am sure this is going to elicit some sweet comments, but I have to post it:

Hi Jason,

I read your blog post and wanted to thank you for nice comments
regarding ServerBeach. Glad to hear that you are happy here. I see
that you are in San Francisco. Our entire executive team will be in
San Francisco next week and they are interested in taking some
clients out to dinner. Would you be interested? Here are the details:

When
Wednesday Jun 25, 2008 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Where
xxxxxxxxxx


Let me know if you would like to attend. We would appreciate the
opportunity to meet you.

Thanks!


Pretty comical.

The Bean has a pink stuffed elephant that I've named "Andrew Sullivan."

Not that there's anything wrong with that!
