Your Voice: Sept 3

by on September 3rd, 2008

All right everyone, now is the time to get serious.  Enough of the fun and frivolity.  It is time for LINKS:

•    The wonderful and talented Andy Laub – actor, designer, coding monkey, singer, player of Rock Band – has solved a problem that has dogged CW for some time, which is the preponderance of fake-people who want to start fake-blogs dedicated to spamming you and everyone around you.  Current real-person bloggers are unaffected, and future real-person bloggers need only undergo a short validation period and then will be set loose into the wide world, where you want to be.

•    The Green Bay Packers News blog continues to be obsessively updated and madly comprehensive.  Highly recommended as always.  And now there is a new place for NFL picks that promises to be a lot of fun.

•    I don’t know if you saw it or not, but there was a sort of interesting flare-up involving Devyn and one of his would-be commenters. Devyn has a blog that is dedicated to pretending that human beings don’t influence global warming.  A fellow named Matthew wanted to comment critically on Devyn’s blog, and Devyn rejected his comments. So Matthew started up his own blog, rebutting some of Devyn’s specific points and questioning some of his philosophical underpinnings.  I guess this is how discourse in the public sphere is supposed to work?

•    And this from back before the holiday, but it still applies: Mohawk Matt’s guide to etiquette at the bar.

•    Dino’s fall reading list.  I think we should all make a fall reading list.  I am going to make one.  My reading lists are often more aspirational than actual, but I am going to try it.
