10 Years After: 2010 -- The Driftington Post

The 10th blogiversary fundraiser continues with the Teabagger Backlash Year of 2010.

In 2010, aggregation was all the rage, and all around these internet one heard how the new business model was throwing up a buncha he said/she said links every day in stead of, y'know, writing stuff. Teddibly, teddibly difficult la vide aggregata was, I heard over and over again.

Well, I decided to find out for myself , so for about a week I tried my hand at it, just to see exactly how hard it was for one person to do it, day after day.

Somepeoplesay .. Otherpeoplesay ... Pot!  ... SEO strategies ...  Web consultant gobbledygook ... "A Reader Writes" ...   Ezra opined one thing, but Conor mused something different ... Celebrity nipple-slips  -- I had them all and in great profusion.

Turns out, based on my unscientific tests, the rote clipping and posting other people's stuff in the most non-controversial way possible every day is several fucktons easier than, y'know, thinking and writing every day.

Anyway, it was called the Driftington Post, and it still exists here, after a fashion

Synthesizing the Narrative of a Generation!

Venerable 1.0 blog

Poised for future 2.0 greatness.

The Age of Aggregation teaches us that while the creation of original daily in-depth essays and artwork can still be a lively diversion for the lone amateur, the important work that lies at the heart of the people-powered revolution --
1) Lightly scanning online material and then,

2) Posting a brief, sparingly-frosted link to that material
-- requires a level of serious, professional labour that only the bulwarking infrastructure of a professional, 21st Century new-media powerhouse can provide.

The people-powered revolution must not be allowed to die! And to safeguard the bright flame of our revolution as it lights the way to our glorious future, we here at the driftglass blog realize that its most important elements must be protected and institutionalized.
