The Blogosphere

About: Fire Dragon

   After being consumed with this blog for a number of months I find that it fits my original ideas about blogs.  While it is fun in an obsessive-compulsive kind of way it is mostly a waste of time for me. In particular it is a nice place to grow an opinion-farm if I wanted an opinion farm.  I don't expect anything to be solved here nor anything original to show up. In fact most of it looks like a link-farm.

   I do make the distinction between the FastBlogIt interface & the nature of the blogosphere & blogging in general. The former is quite agile & with some improvements should rise to the top as the best of breed if the content ever improves. While fbi plods along websites like flickr, myspace & others gain millions of users by being what people want.  Fascinating, I wish I knew the next best fad for the Internet.

   I shall continue to use fbi to document my research on things like flushgov.net & the group UnhackTheBrain project. But, I will de-escalate from the politics of war, right-leftism & the juice of politics, religion & the like.

I can only piss into the wind so long before needing a break to wipe off my face.


Nothing new here in 2013 either, just government gone grossly

For me blogging is part of my process of understanding what is going on.  I find that if i don't write while i read, that my thinking is too nebolous.  Writing is a process of focusing my attention.  That, me thinks is important, when it comes to deciding who to vote for in the next election.

Fifteen websites that changed the world (some I wouldn't agree with)....  I would substitute Flickr for Salon at least.


I would say that these companies are the ones
who definitely did NOT piss into the wind!

Hi, my name is Mark & I'm a Blogaholic ! It has been ~ 45 seconds since my last blog. I slipped seriously off the wagon this morning and I am sorry . I will attempt to ignore both the news of the day & the arguments at FastBlogIt which tempt me so for the next 24 hours and see if I can get my golden token to the next step.

Well my coin of the word opinion-farm jumped to first in google.
