A bad post to MetaFilter is something that meets the following criteria: there is nothing interesting about the content on the page, and I'm only posting it to let you know how uninteresting it is.

BloggerCon's a good topic for a post. I'm guessing there's a Buddhist principle at work in which a subject is interesting because it is so uninteresting, but that seems like a back-asswards way to present something for MetaFilter's teeming masses.

I find the dichotomy between traditional print media and the new journalism as exlempified by the advent of chronolgical lists of links intermingled with personal commentary utterly fascinating. Coupled with the paradigm shattering ethos and ideals of Dave Winer and under the auspices of the finest educational institution in the world, this is truly a remarkable event and will surely be a milestone in the history of media, paralleled only by the invention of movable type and the Guttenburg bible.
