A great blog page
A great blog page
A weblog, which is a frequently updated, chronologically ordered collection of hypertext fragments.
Very well crafted blog. Easy to read through, interesting.
A super blog that has been there for, well... before most of us had any idea what blogging even is.
From the page: "kottke.org is a weblog about the liberal arts 2.0 edited by Jason Kottke since March 1998. "
Ok, I dont' wont review kottke here, but only display the picture. Hey stubleonpeople, how I can don that?
One of the first blogs I read after hearing about blogs, almost 8 years ago. Ten years old today!
Photos of fake giant crabs on garbage cans and spaceship size comparisons? Yeah, I like...

11/11/04: From the page: "And what's more, she has learned my individual habits (no bag or napkin unless I get something to eat and no straw unless it's a carton), something which the other two women had never done despite my daily visit. It's been fun watching her develop into a kick-ass employee and now when I go in, I try to pay at her register if I can."
1/7/05: "The idea that something like the value of Avogadro's number is just a habit that the universe adopted after much practice is quite appealing."
2/16/05: "Why do they call it the loo?
(It's going to be hard to write this one without resorting to all sorts of unclever puns, but I'm going to do my best.)"
2/23/05: "I'm asking the regular readers of kottke.org (that's you!) to become micropatrons of kottke.org by contributing a moderate sum of money to help enable me to edit/write/design/code the site for one year on a full-time basis. If you find kottke.org valuable in any way, please consider giving whatever you feel is appropriate." HAHAHA. Um no.
3/29/05: "Progress on learning to cook like a proper human being has been slow because I've been so busy the past month or so. But baby steps are better than no steps at all and in the past weeks, I've tackled cheeseburgers and pancakes. (Ok, you can stop snickering...I said *baby steps*!)" *Rolls eyes*
4/19/05: 'Adobe CEO Bruce Chizen said in the announcement conference call that 9/11 was a bit of a catalyst for the deal: "after 9/11, we both realized that being enemies didn't make sense". Zuh? But the new company still has enemies worth fighting, even in a post-9/11 world...here's what Chizen had to say in an interview a year ago: "Microsoft is the competitor, and it's the one that keeps me up at night."' ZUH in deed!
5/25/05: "One of the machines he brought to demonstrate its artistic expression was Ribbon Dancer. The willowy one-armed robot performed a routine for us for a couple minutes to a classical piece of music. Near the end of the piece, the ribbon got hung up on the lower part of the apparatus while the arm kept going with the routine, tugging obliviously on the caught fabric. The crowd gasped. For a second there, we thought the arm was going to pull the whole thing over -- not unlike the robot-like AT-AT that got tripped up by a Rebel harpoon on Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back -- but Bruce stepped in to stop the machine and free the ribbon. Despite the mistake, the crowd's emotional reaction to the dancer's potentially hazardous misstep demonstrated the potential for the acceptance of artistic expression by machines."
7/7/05: "A long time ago...
As I was walking home this evening, a little girl was riding her bike in the middle of the street. She still had the training wheels on as she wobbled and struggled to peddle. It reminded me of when I was little and how badly I wanted a bicycle but couldn't get one. My parents wouldn't let me have a bike until I was 12; my mom was too afraid I'd hurt myself. I'd pass the bike section in the store and just look, having given up asking my parents about it long ago. I eventually did get one after much pleading and begging. Amazingly, getting my driver's license at 16 and the subsequent borrowing of the family car passed without incident."
8/25/05: "This is odd...you need a mobile phone to sign up for Gmail (or get an invite from a current user). Well, I guess that's not a whole lot more strange than needing an email address to sign up for an email account."
10/17/05: "Well, summer is definitely over in the eastern United States. The leaves on the trees are going or gone, sweaters and light jackets have started making their appearance, and everyone is sick of tomatoes but drinking apple cider by the gallon."
One of the most well-known internet blogs. Make your own mind up as to whether it deserves its reputation.
Example of amazing unknown facts discovered in this site: "With higher rents (and other factors), good cheap food is getting hard to find in Manhattan." Duhhh...really? Patt
