Happy Birthday, kottke.org! (And Conscientious all tribal)



Überblog kottke.org is 9 years old today; and we are told that “writer and professional pundit Bruce Sterling has cracked bloggers with the extinction stick, saying the plebs will crawl back into their ooze by 2017.” Because, what this here is - if you want to believe the pundit - is some sort of “tribal instincts of man passing down stories in an unregulated fashion”. Well, what do you know - I thought the whole “tribal” idea was some sort of late 1990’s fad! (And as always getretener Quark wird breit, nicht stark.)
