I read a lot of feeds, on a variety of subjects, and take advantage of bloglines "keep new" to save things to look at/blog later. When I’m busy, the "blog closet" gets pretty full, and quite often, many of the things I’ve saved for later are over and done with.
But some things are timeless.
- Like this 1975 live interview with members of Monty Python. (via Boing Boing) Check out the hair!
- And this short historical analysis: The Founders Never Imagined a Bush Administration (via Talking Points Memo)
- The wonderful Yvonne DeVita is going to jail… for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. You can help her make her bail, or check out her blog for some other suggestions on how you can help.
And of course, some things, you just know I am going to comment on.
Like character blogs. At Beyond Madison Avenue today, Mack Collier writes that character blogs would be a good solution to carry on cancelled TV shows. You betcha. Just take a look at the sheer volume of fan fiction on the Internet. I would still pay for a Whedon-produced character blog featuring the characters from the Buffy/Angel-verses.
Great advice from the Copyblogger. Writing about this week’s NY Times article "This Boring Headline Is Written For Google," which discussed the ramifactions of search engine optimization on the news business, he reminds us: "Write for people, people." Amen. We don’t need fancy footwork (or cute headlines) as much as we need clear, concise writing. A little time spent there can save a boatload of hassle, not to mention cost.
