The Ultimate Blog Post 93

Posted by Zonk
from the going-to-sue-ea-over-this dept.
An anonymous reader writes to mention Lore Sjöberg's 'Ultimate Blog Post'. He goes over the history of the blog (dating back over 2000 years), and conveniently condenses out the perfect blog posts for a few notable sites. From the article: "Boing Boing: Crocheted replica of subway map cracks DRM on collection of old video games. FARK: Drunk frat boy in Florida has sex with underage donkey, sues Strong Bad for negligence. Still no cure for overused in-jokes. Slashdot: AMD, SCO patent MP3 over TCP/IP, sue ATI, EA. Microsoft probably responsible somehow. Engadget: Samsung releases new cell phone/mp3 player/camera/web browser/GPS/game player/wireless hub. Now in gray! Joystiq: Will Wright to design first-person Warcraft shooter for the Wii. Jack Thompson responds with aneurysm."

    Boing Boing: Crocheted replica of subway map cracks DRM on collection of old video games.

    FARK: Drunk frat boy in Florida has sex with underage donkey, sues Strong Bad for negligence. Still no cure for overused in-jokes.

    Slashdot: AMD, SCO patent MP3 over TCP/IP, sue ATI, EA. Microsoft probably responsible somehow.

    Kottke: Elwin Festerator is the unsung inventor of the curly telephone cord. "I looked at a straight telephone cord, and I asked myself, Elwin, why can't that be curly? So I went out and got my brand-new curling gun, and I curled the hell out of it." Related link: New Yorker article on the Olympic curling team.

    Engadget: Samsung releases new cell phone/mp3 player/camera/web browser/GPS/game player/wireless hub. Now in gray!

    Joystiq: Will Wright to design first-person Warcraft shooter for the Wii. Jack Thompson responds with aneurysm.

    Groklaw: Transcript of SCO deposition on previous court order concerning applicability of evidence to last year's motion to review earlier statements. Seriously, we love this stuff.

    Daily Kos: Bush caught in three-way with Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh.

    Little Green Footballs: Bush enjoys triumphant three-way with Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh.

    MAKE blog: How to create a nuclear accelerator using a Flash drive, a Commodore 64 and a guy named Roger.

    Metafilter: Unhelpful link text. Extra links added for padding that have little to do with the main topic of the entry. Are extremely loaded rhetorical questions the only thing that can save us now?

    Digg: Hey, cool, someone wrote an article about Digg!

    IIRC 'blog' is short for 'weblog'. I must be tired or something, because I fail to grasp how a WebLog can predate the Web by aprox. 1970 years...

    While blogging has only reached prominence in the last few years, it was actually invented by the ancient Romans who built a majestic blog in 200 BC from marble, granite and links they stole from the Greeks.

    "Blog" itself is short for "weblog," which is short for "we blog because we weren't very popular in high school and we're trying to gain respect and admiration without actually having to be around people."


    Oh come on, now. When you consider the fact that a blog is nothing more than someone's diary, posted online, it seems a bit puerile to suggest that it's been around for thousands of years. Well of COURSE it has. It just wasn't called a blog then.

    And as he mentioned in the second sentence of the FA, blog is short for WEBlog. Shouldn't he then need to say how the WEB was invented during the last 20 years?

    I know, I know, blah blah creative license blah blah, but this just seems like a really cheap writing trick. [/style nazi]

    With link to what poster believes is really the ultimate blog post, what will jam your browser solid unless you have oodles of RAM were you to open the 2k+ comments at the bottom of said ultimate blog post.

    http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2006/7/25/03646/ 9549 [dailykos.com]

    Reminder that poster DID warn you about getting your browser jammed up.

  • Obligatory Apple user comment that Safari loads it just fine. Link to Apple [slashdot.org] but lacking "http://www." resulting in it giving a Slashdot 404.

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.
