Nobody likes to be called a dummy by a dummy.

Hmm, thought; elite bloggers are poor, modern-day socialites

Ahole thought of the day.  I was thinking about all those hip bloggers from SF.  Just a bunch of socialites with nothing to do.

And you are just unhip with nothing else to do.

Face it, in the modern world people don't have anything to do. It's all made up.

The fact that twitter is viewed as a good evolution of online activity by anyone is a very, very bad sign.

People burn out of this stuff. Already the original intent of a blog has largely dissolved, and only a few actually use it in that Twitter Sr. manner. Now it's just a publishing medium.

Blogs always failed at interactivity, which is the heart of communication. That's what Twitter offers. It's not about depth.

Right, because we really need to know when a friend has just had a great bowel movement. :-P

There are socialites in modern times (w/o blogs). Jemina Khan is called a socialite.

I don't think he was saying they've replaced the old guard, they just represent that sort of culture.

People sitting around gossiping about the others, and they get together in restaurants and gab, then run back home to tell the others the latest.

And who the heck doesn't do that? Isn't something like 30% of conversation gossip and stories? That being a good thing.
