Ethan Kaplan, Master of Irony

Dave Winer posts that too many blogs are chasing each other's tails with meta-commentary about meta-commentary and gossip about gossipers. He says, "the end is near" and there's a drought of original thinking. "Most people wouldn't recognize an original thought if it bit them in the ass," he says.

Then, Ethan Kaplan chimes in with: "Wow, I agree with Dave Winer completely on this." Was that an original thought? Or a meta-comment? Or just delicious irony? I vote irony.

Mickeleh's Take: I agree with both of them (and everyone else making this point). But there's nothing new or original in noticing it:
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes, 1:10).
On the other hand, it is not true that Ecclesiastes said, "Of the making of many blogs there is no end." That was Sifry.

I never met-a-comment I didn't like. Buh-dum-dum. You knew that one was coming. Nothing original.

Oliver Gassner said...

Some call it metacomment, others call it 'conversation', which is kinda what blogs are for, right?

Mike Chapman said...

I like your twitter comments and agree with you on the Presidential.

My attitude about blogs is that they are whatever you want them to be. That's the point. There are no rules except the ones you want to develop for your own blog...individual expression. I appreciate when I can bounce in and comment, maybe make a contact or potential friend.

Take it easy.

LMAO!! EOM.

Ok, I might take Winer's comment more seriously if he didn't put up posts on his own blog (which he then promotes) that are his impulsive thoughts of the moment, like his emotional reaction to receiving a mass email from the Obama campaign and whining that he's not just an ATM and deserves to be personally wined, dined and loved for his brains before he's asked to contribute. Not that I don't post my own silliness, but he's a bit like the Surburban SUV driver complaining about smog.
