If you’re eclectic in your reading of print media, it may have occurred to you that there are some people around, people who are quick to dismiss the blogosphere as an echo-chamber, full of shallow and superficial like-minded people who couldn’t write an accurate and in-depth story about anything to save their lives.
If that’s the kind of perception you have about the blogosphere, then go take a look at this site. Here’s an extract from today’s post:
“So these talks they’ve been having up until now, they were basically all just talking about the rules of the talks they might have if they ever get to actually talking about the talks we want them to be talking about?”
“Something like that”, I replied vaguely, deliberately avoiding a forensic description of exactly what was going on because I wasn’t sure I could provide one.
“So tell me”, my friend wickedly said, “When are they going to start talking about what everyone else is talking about, and that is the fact that there is no food in the shops anymore?”
