How's the Blogosphere?

A creative lyrical satire on blogging. I was concerned about the dialog portion going off on blogging in general as "saying nothing". I find "traditional" channels saying nothing lately. I'd rather page through a large number of individual(istic) blogs to keep up with my interests than a limited number of sanctioned channels.

It's not so much that I think blogging in general says nothing -- I read lots of blogs and gain a lot from them. The "random nothingness" stuff is a takeoff on the large number of blogs I've come across (mostly in the Java developer space) that have... disingenuously self-deprecating descriptions for people who certainly do have something to say...
So go for it, bloggers.

Hi, Patrick. Thanks for the comment on my "Mr. Blogger" post. It's not so much that I think blogging in general says nothing -- I read lots of blogs and gain a lot from them. The "random nothingness" stuff is a takeoff on the large number of blogs I've come across (mostly in the Java developer space) that have as subtitles things like "whimsical musings", "random rants", "about nothing in general", "bit bucket" -- disingenuously self-deprecating descriptions for people who certainly do have something to say. I think it takes a fair amount of ego to blog (I don't mean that in a bad way) -- I just wish bloggers would admit that to themselves and do away with the cutesy false modesty.
