… by the way, if you value these bliggity-blog things, go throw Atrios some coin. When I stumbled into blogging, a little early and quite by accident, the only “hub” available was the Instant Pundit, which was kind of like having Fox as the only news channel. Our side desperately needed our own aggregator, and Atrios rose to the challenge. The problem is, in our brave new internet economy, the tradition of “paying” for services rendered is becoming rapidly obsolete — who needs “money” when you have page views? Unfortunately it is my understanding that Atrios still maintains a physical body in meat space and has “rent” which needs to be “paid.” Go figure.
