Too Much Information About This Website

This site is a bad idea

Why no Twitter jokes? I don’t hear the laugh. Why waste my time? It’s a horrible performing interface. I can’t think of a worse one. I always think about people that write books. What a horrible feeling it must be to have poured your soul into a book over a number of years and somebody comes up to you and goes, “I loved your book,” and they walk away, and you have no idea what worked and what didn’t. That to me is hell. That’s my definition of hell. —Jerry Seinfeld 1

Why it exists anyway

  1. to shout into the abyss.
  2. A few people have told me they have successfully modified their chair, fixed their computer, found music for waltzing, or seized the means of production as a result of things I’ve written.
  3. To assuage guilt about link rot.2
  4. The more written here, the less crap forwarded to you.
  5. I miss the Daily Dish, and I have the polo shirt to prove it.
  6. I can’t read without writing
  7. I host some stuff from other people, and I should try and keep it up.
