Via Slashdot, I just found out I’m in mortal peril. When they talk about the “nonstop strain of producing for a news and information cycle that is as always-on as the Internet”, I know just what they mean, it’s not easy coming up with random waffle here every couple of days (apart from weekends, public holidays and when I can’t be bothered).

Actually, it is *quite* easy. And if I get stuck I can just post links to the New York Times. Mind you, the advertising revenue isn’t so hot, the Welcome Break, Low Wycombe still haven’t sent us the promised 74p, makes me glad I cleared them out of little bottles of shampoo at the time, the bastards.

Thought for the day.

Imagine if we, the mass of massively multiplayer online gamers, joined together and formed a corporation, and spent as much time grinding stock markets or crafting real items for sale or farming… well, just farming, as we currently do in MMOs.

Do you think it would be long before we destabilised the world economy?
