How many box office winners from the last few years are available for legal online viewing?
A few days ago, I noticed some traffic coming from a site I hadn’t seen before. Apparently, I had been classified as a B-list blogger. The site, called Blogebrity, has since started to garner a fair amount of attention. I caught up with one of the site’s creators over IM. Here’s a quick IM interview, done in the style Jason blogs in: TNLNYC: Congrats on the slashdotting. How are your server and ego holding up? blogebrity: well, right now we’re hosted on the Contagious Media servers, which seem to be weathering all the traffic storms well. As for ego… Nothing like a nice slashdotting to keep you somewhat humble… somewhat being an operative word haha TNLNYC: Here’s a dumb, and possibly recursive, question: when will blogebrity appear on the blogebrity list? blogebrity: HA!

Next week will mark the second anniversary of the September 11th terrorist act. Since then a lot of people have said that things have changed, that WE have changed.

How did the September 11th experience change your life, if it did in any way? How are things different in your life now? What have you done/not done as a result of September 11th? Once you’ve blogged it (on September 11th), send me a refer link to your entry and I’ll get a list of everyone who sent me a link up here. Feel free to pass this on to anyone you think might be interested and together, we might be able to create a joint memorial.Read More
