Aw, to hell with it. I decided to just put the piece up here, for you are the audience I care about, not the handful of insular souls who’ll read a self-referential, self-reverential faux scholarly periodical about weblogs — when it would be so much better if they just read weblogs instead.
And if I’m wrong, you’ll tell me. For you are my editor.
This last line is SO powerful…
