Well that's weird, and cool. I always thought the templates were sitewide.

Sadly, it doesn't rival the now-defunct Met4filter.org page. That K5 announcement actually introduced me to MeFi, and I used the M4 page to read MeFi for many, many months.

I think it's because Kottke changed his design again.

Then why hasn't this been posted to the front page?

While we're talking about A-Listers, I just want to say:

I think it's great that, after giving lip service about how blogging is revolutionary, blah blah blah, more personal relationship between publishers & readers, blah blah blah, death to old media, blah blah blah, that once the first wave A-Listers have cemented their status as head of the pack, they turn off commenting and such on their blogs.

Anyone besides Kottke do this? And wouldn't being five years older and having more work responsibilities have something to do with a decision like that?
posted by mathowie (staff) at 3:36 PM on June 29, 2004


Well, lessee. No comments on Kottke, Dooce, A Whole... I could have sworn Anil disabled 'em, but it looks like either I was wrong or they're back. I'd have to check my bookmarks for the rest... Besides, everyone's A-List is different.

Of course, why anyone should pay attention to what I have to say is beyond me, because a) I never update my blog and b) nobody reads it. Hmm. I wonder if (a) has something to do with (b).
posted by keswick at 3:41 PM on June 29, 2004


I went to your blog keswick. I think you need to be less topical and more entertaining. The site is dry man. Try kidding around a bit. And it all seems like short marketing sound bites. At least the A-Listers know what a blog is.
posted by y6y6y6 at 3:49 PM on June 29, 2004


Actually, this is my blog. It's just downstream of a Superfund site, which is fitting.
posted by keswick at 3:57 PM on June 29, 2004


That blog suxxors. Where is the fricking RSS?
posted by Mid at 4:02 PM on June 29, 2004


Oh goody, a chance to make fun of A-Li... oh hell, I haven't got the energy anymore.

kottke's redesign's nice and tight and functional imho, and wisely eschews the dropshadows-and-tiles that are all the rage these days. And which I've been toying with for my own redesign. D'oh.

I have (a) and (b), but I write for myself when I write which probably means (b) should be (B).

Welcome Back Kottke!

...your dreams were your ticket out.
Welcome back...
To that same old place that you laughed about.
Well, the names have all changed since you hung around,
But those dreams have remained and they've turned around.
Who'd have thought they'd lead ya
Back here where we need ya.
Yeah, we tease him a lot cause we got him on the spot
Welcome back
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.

Look! It's Haughey Barbarino!

Keswick: A lot of popular webloggers dump comments because the audience reaches a size where it becomes a chore to read them, much less police them.

Billmon, a liberal weblogger whose site has taken off in the last six months, just dumped his for that reason.
