Though I hate to eliminate the last remaining shred of a possibility that I might be a humble man, I just have to say I think I really outdid myself with my latest crazy web project: HawaiiStories. In short, it’s a community weblog. Ideally, it’ll really bring together the many escribitionists with Hawaii ties for […]

Oh man. Those new Nixon tapes are priceless. “Do you know what happened to the Romans? The last six Roman emperors were fags… You know what happened to the popes? It’s all right that popes were laying the nuns.” Nixon seems to have earnestly believed that civilization was on the verge of crumbling under the […]

Microcontent news has done a couple of thought-provoking pieces on the phenomenon of weblogging and how it’s affecting what’s found on the web – specifically, via Google. Basically, they’ve now covered the “good side” and the “dark side.” Of course, the first thing I did after I read the section on “Google Bombs” was rush […]

Boy, those kids at the Honolulu Advertiser are really on the ball. Front page news in today’s edition: Group says Honolulu ‘mean’ to homeless people. The story, about a national report that ranks the city among the nation’s worst in its treatment of the poor and homeless, sounded familiar — particularly as it was being […]
