  • “Only the lonely write blogs,” says a total fucking idiot

    Mitch Joel today points us to a article which ended up on the cover of the Montreal Gazette today. Quoting Michael Keren, a professor from the University of Calgary, whose random anecdotes are supported by the fact that he has a degree and absolutely no blog whatsoever: Bloggers think of themselves as rebels against […]

  • Up to WordPress 2.0.7
