The Ultimate Blog Post 93

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."

    Lore Sjoberg is probably best known for his hilarious, now defunct website Brunching Shuttlecocks, and the "Ratings" column he used to write on that website. You can still read the past columns right here [bookofratings.com]. The ones about classic video games and Dungeons & Dragons characters are especially funny.

    Though I withhold judgement until some confirmation comes.
    You do that with "normal" news too, right?

    I mean, the shit [zombietime.com] that passes [flounder.com] for "unbiased" news [michellemalkin.com] lately [youtube.com] is pretty freaky.

    What's more, of those obvious frauds I linked to, only one really got to be a big story; most of the rest non-blog readers will be ignorant of, even though they're about as well established as a proof of a lie or manipulation can possibly be.

    The media is 100% untrustworthy on war reporting, and it's hard to see it as anything but deliberate. In other fields, they're still pretty untrustworthy, but it's more because of ignorance, I think. (Check out your local college's journalism cirriculum, then explain to me why a "journalist" is qualified to write about politics, science, police investigations, or any number of fields rich with traditions, philosophy, and/or technology.)

    The difference between the media and blogs is mostly that one is on TV, and the media pretty much slants one way whereas on blogs you can find everything.
