Controversy

I post this as an experiment to see how my stats counter registers it. My hypothesis is that it will go nutty. Controversy sells.

I read this today: “The blogosphere is the friend of information but the enemy of thought,” (Alan Jacobs in Books & Culture.) (cited here).

I’ll report the results in a couple of days (although my guess is that the findings will generate far fewer visits). C’est la vie.

    Your own words condemn you!

    wikipedia states:

    Some people commonly understand gossip as meaning the spreading of rumor and misinformation, as (for example) through excited discussion of scandals. Some newspapers carry “gossip columns” which retail the social and personal lives of celebrities or of élite members of certain communities.
