    Haha, yes it’s amazing the extent to which blogs are already a sign of being that much older.

    Zoom zoom, time marches on!

    This one is great. I thought it would be all about the excess of housing and then it turned out to be the excess of space on the Internet. Hully gee! This comic was a whole experience unto itself.

    it’s quite the thing to realize that your online efforts have stretched through at least 3 different kinds of now-obscure web formats. does anyone else remember geocities? (tumbleweed)

    “I saw the best mimes of my generation destroyed by laziness, starving (for Starbucks) hysterical (laughing at LOLcats) naked, dragging themselves through the Technorati pages at dawn looking for an angry fix; angel-keyboarded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection…”

    Nah, too derivative.

    It’s just south of downtown, next to the AIM brothel.

    Stale links, cargo cult cut’n paste, inaccurate, outdated, badly derived opinion instead of research based narrative for troubleshooting. And SEO optimized so it ends up being the first you run across, wasting hours of your life chasing down the wrong troubleshooting path.

    The average tech blog and pretty much ALL of Microsoft and Apple “social” tech forums which are amazing able to be wastelands prior to the posting occurring. The more that gets added to the latter, the less relevant they become.

    Which is worse, the passive stale wasteland or the active irrelevant wasteland?
