These days,it looks like DDoS attacks are the death of blogging.

The discussion, and inevitable ensuing legion of people jumping ship because of it, is what prompted this in a comment in someone else's LJ.

Twitter is the death of inane crap on LJ (except for those who reflect their twat on LJ) and blogs.

I can understand mirroring Twitter to your LJ for your own benefit, but reading one-sided IMs annoys the ever-loving SHIT out of me.

For me:

LJ = substance
Facebook = fluff
Twitter = noise

everyone can do it with no thought or preparation, and worse anyone with a blog is showing up at events and claiming to be media (PAX East was overwhelmed with). I think that the days of 10 or even just 5 years ago where it was clearly delineated into professional, semi-pro and amateur had it's advantages. I do firmly believe that everyone having their own voice and ability to talk to the world is an awesome thing. However, I think it's been turned into a pop will eat itself moment. Disco, which had some amazing moments in the early 70s when it started, with early proto-disco (think Love Rollercoaster, or Shaft). By the end of the 70s it had produced Escape (The Pina Colada Song) and Copacabana.

Blogging is doing the same sort of thang.

I see your point. Is it possible that, in time, this will be a good thing? With a saturation of "professionals," people may start paying closer attention to their claimed credentials to better decide who's worth paying attention to and who's not. (OK, FOX News pretty much blows that theory out of the water, but a boy can dream, can't he?)

I wonder how long it'll take before "pro" means "I have over 1,000 friends on Facebook?"

Bleh. I don't really use FB that much. Only to share photos on it.


By the way, for penance on being unable to make it last Friday, you'll have to stop by my bookshop this Friday. :P

I know, I totally spaced that we were still going to be in California. Who showed up? What did you play?

I doubt I'll make it this weekend - I'm either going up to Philly to do my mom's taxes, or staying home and doing ours. UGH. :(

By the way, we're officially listed on GCOM (both Larry's and your place). I need to send out an announcement. Hopefully this'll get some new folks coming in.

Saturday, I meant! >.< Not that I'll be going to work today anyway. Have to stay home and take care of my dad, because he took a hard fall yesterday. I hope his neck feels better soon.

Myself, my mom, Brianna (who was just the spectator the last time you met her), Bob, and New Rich showed up. We played Treasures & Traps, and Spinner (this fun dominoes game in which whoever has the lowest points wins). New Rich introduced Bob to Hive when Brianna, Mom, and I arrived to Big Larry's.

Brianna played Treasures & Traps with us, and enjoyed it. I think she's interested in becoming a regular.

Taxes. Boooooo, hisssSSSSS!

Hurray for GCOM!

This all goes back to the mid 90's when the internet killed fandom.

Seriously though, do people really think of facebook as blogging? Because it's not. It doesn't even vaguely resemble blogging.

Wait .. wait, I thought Star Wars killed fandom in the late 70's, oh wait, that's right, Star Trek killed fandom in the mid '60's!

Actually, I think it was video that killed the radio star...
