“There’s these people — I think they’re called ‘bloggers.’ They dig up dirt on people, and make it sound just plausible enough … they like to bring down famous people, like in the media … they live to score points that way.”
On a recent Friday afternoon I visited Lex at his office, where we discussed the usual politics and developed a robust libertarian/conservative dinner strategy. Mrs. Lex soon joined us and we set off for the excellent Reza’s, where we met up with some blogging colleagues and a few interlopers. We ate, drank, discussed interesting things and had a good time. Here are some photos.
Thursday Night: Reconnaissance
Gabe Rivera has a new blog-quoting robot that looks interesting. I’m not sure whether it’s actually updating yet, but it’s a good start. Headline placement is determined by blog linkage ratings.
This kind of news aggregator can be useful if well done (I think this means: specialized, thoughtfully opinionated, and not a Google-style attempt to copy mainstream-journo “headline news” style). Gabe’s site seems to be Anglospheric in orientation. I wish him well.
For those of you who unfamiliar with the antics over at my blog (currently on hiatus), Iím Captain Mojo, the latest addition to the fine Chicago Boyz family.
I like to think that Iíll provide that air of confused unprofessionalism, juvenile commentary, and semi-coherent ranting so necessary to balance the skillful writing, astute observations, and capability for abstract reasoning that my fellow contributors demonstrate so commonly.
Itís all about balance and harmony people.
Anyways, thanks to all the other fellas for letting me play in their sandbox, and Iím looking forward to joining in on all the fun.
