Simple Guide to the A-List Bloggers
Anyone who disagrees with me is a festering disease-carrying burnt-toast maggot. I am the Internet, doncha know that? I made it what it was. I invented Blogs. And my markup spec's are the all. Scripting and DaveNet was everything, I was ahead of the game. And when you all were still in diapers, I was (and still am) the world. I am King of the Whole Wide World. Microsoft is pure evil, they want to steal your kids, salt your lawn, plant greenish-oozed nuclear waste in your laundry detergent. I, however, have only the best of intentions. Comments? Sorry no can do. But trust me. Link Link Link Link to my supporters. Slam slam slam the ones I hate. Backstab here, backstab there. Change this spec here, change that spec here. RSS Spec fight here, RSS Spec fight there. Only thing worse than Microsoft are the morons at SixApart. Change spec - here, there and everywhere. Disagree? Then you are Evil Incarnate. Unreadable unmanageable code here, unreadable unmanageable code there. How to Disinfluence People and Tick-Off the Entire World via Blog. Anyone who was under the mistaken impression that Bloggers all get along hasn’t met me. Slam slam slam slam slam slam the ones I hate. Hey, not so fast, I invented that. Yes I did. YES I DID! Here’s a pointer to this issue 3.5 years ago when I discussed and invented it. So there! Here is my definition of what a makes a blog a blog, and I outta know.
10. Print “Blogs are Cool, they will Save the World. And Dave is the King of the Entire World.”
20. Goto 10.
Commmeoooon, everyone, shout along to the beat. Ready now? A one...A one, two three, fouuurrr...Slam slam s-l-a-m - Slam slam s-l-a-m - Slam slam s-l-a-m.
“In the beginning was the Blog, and the Blog was with Dave, and the Blog was God. The same was in the beginning with Dave. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness (everyone but Dave) comprehended it not.”
Peace brother. Peace. Chill out, man. If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands. If you’re happy and you know it, your Blog will surely show it. Clap your hands. Greetings from the Left Coast. Internet Utopia. Blogs do have a metaphor. It’s writing. Journalism. I am not a real Doctor, but Linux will cure cancer. Toke up, yah man, peace. Happy happy. No conflicts, Contractions do not exist. Someone said Blogs are the director’s cut of journalism. I am never wrong. Circumvent, distort, sleight-of-hand tricks, and even when I am cornered, I simply open the discussion for my supporters to back me up. Follow along. Or contribute. Or both. Whatever. Just don't disagree. This new meme here, that new meme there. Here’s some pointage to back and forth between this person and that person on this issue. DIY Journalism. The powers of Big Media have been forever broken!! Power to the People. Linux rules! Linux makes a great hamburger topping. Blogs, there is no us and them. It’s all us. Weblogs are the highest form of audience content. Weblogs are the highest form of evolutionary development. Printwash, Searlsowash, but NOT Googlewash, no no. Google is God. If not on Google it doesn’t count. Libraries, reference material? Hogwash! Wall yourself out, get what you deserve. Hotel Internet troubles! Blanket the World in FREE broadband Wi-Fi. Yes! Wi-Fi will save us all! And oh, Andrew-Orlowski-is-the-Devil-Wash-But-I-Still-Sorta-Like-Him-As-I-am-A-Happy-Person-Always, Ireallyhavenoearthlyideawhatiamtalkingaboutbutiblogonwash, Chill, Peace, Everything should be free man. Free! Paying for content on the web is downright Satanic. Free man free. The blog train has been delivering clues to the newspaper publishing business for several years now, but we don’t have a sign that the biz is taking delivery.

Yeah, strange as it may seem, I actually believe half of the BuzzPhrases, I made up in that old computer program. I have two regrets about this conference trip. One is that I only brought one undershirt. The other is that I forgot my copy of this latest book. I had lunch with this person, he’s been one of my favorite conference buddies.

Suffering it at this hotel is proving how blogging is a grace of bandwidth, at least for me. Here’s some pointage to some back and forth between this person and that person on this issue. This person brings up a really good question. Discuss. Here’s some pointage back and forth on this question. This new meme here, that new meme there. Discuss. Discuss.
Doc: The sky is purpleish brown green with red dots and grayish-yellow stripes.
No the sky is blue.
Doc: Well, the real issue is, what do we really mean by sky and how do we externally perceive it? And where does (what we mean by) sky exist? All skies are not “blue”, as on some planets somewhere, I think maybe, the sky could be purpleish brown green with red dots and grayish-yellow stripes. The sky is, in fact, multi-colored, it is just our false perception of what the internal makeup of this thing we call “blue” is to our imperfect human eyes. This false reality that forms our observation of what is, is in fact, not reality at all. Far out. Stop being so close minded and dogmatic. Link. Link. Link. Chill out. Link. Link. Link. Link. Peace.

What??? What? You mean the war is over? Say it ain’t so, Joe! Oh no!!! But still important questions remain! Yes. Yes! Pay attention now. Post-War Iraq, the War on Terror, that still goes on! How dare you go about your normal life! Do you NOT understand? Sheeesh, what is it with you people anyways? If you’ve spent the weekend, you know, “having a life,” and missed things, you may want to scroll down to these 150 or so posts. Important! Post-War Iraq, people are still getting killed. Very Important! Let’s discuss things. Yes, important issues. Discuss, discuss. Comment quip on Iraq news. Comment quip on the latest Pentagon news. Comment quip on Iranian news. Comment quip on Syrian news. Comment quip on Terrorism news. War on Terror still being fought. How can you even dare to think of mundane everyday life stuff?

News story: they are absolutely right on this, and it seems clear that priorities are still askew. But if pop-ups have been keeping you away, be advised that his site is now popup free! Why the Russians would want a not-terribly-friendly-or-stable nuclear-armed power on their southern border has never made sense to me. Comment quip on Major-Media missed Iranian news. Comment quip on Syrian news. Comment quip on Terrorism news. The former, of course, supports an Administration claim; the latter contradicts one. Former true? Latter true? Is either reliable? Who knows. Sorry for the lack of intensive Blogging this morning. It’s been busy around the InstaPundit household, 5 months worth of laundry. Comment quip on Terrorism news. War on Terror still being fought. Andrew Sullivan made lots of money. I didn’t. Its not fair!! Pout pout. But thanks to those who gave.

Publish out-of-print books onto the Internet. So this is so very cool — the 7th Circuit posts mp3s of its argument. Reform copyright. Framers had the timeframe right. And Peer to Peer is the future. Reclaim the Public Domain, yes. All free. Copyrights are evil. Bad. Bad. Scalia to Marx in one easy step. Free! Everything should be Free! I am a Lawyer. I argue important cases, but I never seem to win. I lose cases. I am a washout as a lawyer (thank God for tenure) BUT I have street credits with the Slashdot crowd. When you see me on a case, its a guaranteed short-sell signal. Reclaim the Public Domain petition! Sign it please. Spam the world with my petition!!! A Bounty on Spammers, exceptions for me of course, the Law always has loopholes. I actually believe people will pay attention to some corny online petition! Also take pictures at Starbucks! Civil Disobedience Protests! And oh Microsoft is evil. Bad bad bad. They ruined Netscape. Netscape could have been a platform. Lucifer works for Microsoft. New Evils: DRM and Palladium! Petition! Petition! Petition! Yet there are many who are frustrated that this doesn’t go far enough. Many on Slashdot, for example, demand that we “hold out” for something much more radical, but small step. I once was a normal mainstream conservative, but I am now an Internet Commons Communist. I am cyberlaw! No one ELSE knows more about CYBERLAW than I do. I am everything. Wired did a profile on me! I belong to EFF! And look at all these other groups I am a part of. I am cyberlaw! Take a look at my 2.5 gigs of PowerPoint slides, they show you why I am right! My Internet vision is sharper than anyone else’s. I am not a Scientist, but Scientific American named me a Visionary! Make New (Free) Code, Not War. Free! Open Source! Money is the root of all Evil. Free! I have a degree in Economics but I still somehow believe in the Free Lunch Philosophy. Software copyrights are bad! Abuses mean there should be no laws at all! I am cyberlaw! I am cyberlaw! I am cyberlaw! REDUCE Spam Act! Except for my Petition! That is ok SPAM. The ends justifies the means! Doncha know anything about the Law? Sign my Petition and forward to your closest 8,675,309 friends! Thank You!

“I mean, books are printed on substrate that is so fragile that it burns when it comes into contact with oxygen. We actually use that substrate to wipe our asses with. This is not robust, archival material. This is the very definition of ephemeral, that literature is a book written on toilet paper.” - Cory Doctorow

Guess old John C. knows old media is DOOMED. “Amazzzing Graccce, I onccce wasss blllinnnnddd butttt noooowww I seeeeeeeeee...” Whooooo! My first novel is out! I love me. I write weirdly chaotic ‘makes-no-sense’ Sci-Fi stories about a not-to-distant future, or maybe the future is now. But since it is all Sci-Fi I get away with all this random un-defragged sheer-chaos.

“The guy who’d figured out the pineapple-orange fruit roll-up edible routing tags had Whuffie to spare: Adrian’s mom knew someone, who also knew someone, who knew this guy, who knew the friend, who knew this neighbor down the street, who had a sister, who knew this guy that worked at the donut shop, who had a blogger friend that told her, and she said that he had an entire sub-aquatic palace, with an exotic tropical-fish aquarium and a room full of robotic Furbies, to rattle around in. A clamor of swallowing and burping noises filled his ears, as the crowd subvocalized...”
