2005: BloggedI only have two negative points to raise about the book 2005: Blogged; the fonts take some getting used to (this matter has already been covered) and you cannot read this book in bed (some entries make sleep difficult, and others may cause involuntary outbursts of laughter that are sure to wake your chosen life-partner).

Everything else is positive, positive, positive.

OK, now the review is wrapped up, let me get onto the important task of telling you what this book really is….

This book is the perfect gift for that person in your life who still doesn’t ‘get’ weblogs.

I’ll repeat that, just in case you scanned past it…

This book is the perfect gift for that person in your life who still doesn’t ‘get’ weblogs.

1. It’s a book, not a computer. Very little fear is involved.

2. A lot of people enter the world of weblogs and quickly abandon the idea once they’ve waded through their 8th yard of dross. There is no dross here. Tim Worstall’s editing is tight and tidy. It’s also balanced…

3. Because of the way link-cliques are formed, those who delve just a little deeper into blogs often become convinced that all bloggers are shouty from the left, shouty from the right, or simply determined to not give a damn (at the top of their voice). This book bypasses the blogroll and presents a wide range of viewpoints and writing styles.

4. It’s currently available Amazon at just a shade over 5 squid, so it’s suitable as a modest gift, part of a gift, or the perfect solution for this year’s Secret-Santa.

OK, I’ve made my case. Act as you will. As you were.

UPDATE 1 – If you have no friends to speak of (or none that you regard highly enough to spend five pounds and change on), then perhaps you might like to buy a copy for your local MP? Maybe then they’ll understand.

UPDATE 2 – Committed bloggers may also want to buy a copy for themselves; if only to meet this challenge:

This is a list of all contributors. How long do you think it would take to do the rounds and secure for yourself the ultimate signed copy?

Apparently, to win this one, I ‘only’ need to pester you to click here and vote for me. Again and again and again. Every day for the next 9 days.

This is because their system allows you to vote for your favourite blog as often as you like, so long as you only vote once every 24 hours.

Pfft! I’d be happier with the level-headed judges from The N00b Statesman in charge.

I’m going to play with this in the morning, yes I am. (Nice use of Blogger here, btw.)

Once you go to a profile and seek ‘Similar libraries’, you’re sure to work out why I might find it interesting.


(Ooh, look – it contains graphic novels. Why, I do believe I shall have a little play with it *now*.)

Vaudeville came to us before the turn of the last century, and it has left a legacy that, well… I’m not sure how to describe it…

Again. Not bad, considering I had to almost double the number of inbound links just to maintain that position. Now all I have to do is earn it all over again.

Something’s cooking…

Just doing some backtracking on Star Wars: A Musical Tribute. Here’s some stuff I found along the way…

I missed this one from January (via Capatain’s Blog) – Star Wars Episode III: A Lost Hope

I didn’t miss the Lego Church plugged by Baseball Crank (this was blogged over two years ago) but this is new information – Lucas’ idea for new Star Wars Prequel?

Emo Farm (via Screenhead) confused me at first, because none of their emos looked like Emo. Then I realised I was dealing with a new kind of emo – a lower-case ‘e’ emo. Does this lack of cult-term-awareness mean that I actually have been getting out more?

Nooooooo! has been appearing everywhere, and is now popular enough to be well-and-truly broken.
