NEXT LEVEL REACHED

“Get ready for the next level in the blogosphere,” warns the NY Times:


Arianna Huffington, the columnist and onetime candidate for governor of California, is about to move blogging from the realm of the anonymous individual to the realm of the celebrity collective.

According to the NYT, unless we’re failed gubernatorial candidates and unimpressive columnists, we bloggers are “anonymous”.


She has lined up more than 250 of what she calls “the most creative minds” in the country to write a group blog that will range over topics from politics and entertainment to sports and religion. It is essentially a nonstop virtual talk show that will be part of a Web site that will also serve up breaking news around the clock. It is to be introduced May 9.

Sounds like a pile of crap.


Having prominent people join the blogosphere, Ms. Huffington said in an interview, “is an affirmation of its success and will only enrich and strengthen its impact on the national conversation.” Among those signed up to contribute are Walter Cronkite, David Mamet, Nora Ephron, Warren Beatty, James Fallows, Vernon E. Jordan Jr., Maggie Gyllenhaal, Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., Diane Keaton, Norman Mailer and Mortimer B. Zuckerman.

Hmm. Can’t wait for Diane Keaton‘s opinion on, say, nothing. This won’t work; blogs function best when they focus closely on events or themes, chasing down links and evidence to support their arguments. You think Keaton (or Cronkite, or Mailer, or Beatty, or Mamet) will devote more than a post or two to any given issue? It’ll be a festival of shallow takes, as Cronkite predicts:


This gives me a chance to sound off with a few words or a long editorial. It’s a medium that is new and interesting, and I thought I’d have some fun.

Yay. Blogs rule.

    Fossil.

    Diane Keaton

  5. Like the average person that doesn’t read blogs now will start reading this one just because their favorite actor/actress/news anchor/Clinton-era slimeball happens to post every two weeks or so.

    Like the people that do read blogs will have time to add a new massive group blog to their list. Hell, Power Line seems to do about 5-8 posts a day, and they’ve only got 3 people. Multiply that by 80. Plus, what little that turns out halfway decent will get lost in the rest of the crap that gets posted—just like the rest of the blogosphere combined.

  11. I’m more interested in what the 250 and more regular commenters to this blog have to say.  They seem much more intelligent, motivated, and interested in current events than those recruited by Arianna.

    Case in point:  how many of them, including Uncle Walter, made the slightest effort to check up on the TAG faxes that were publicized with the intention of imperiling the presidency of George Bush? 

    They’ll probably blog about the shape of their swimming pool or the newest restaurants that have opened up.

    She recently said that America brought 9/11 upon itself because it has “done reprehensible acts”:
    Skank opines

    Purely a hypothetical case: if she is raped and murdered, I will say that she brought it upon herself because she has “said reprehensible things.”

    The first six movies she made (Waterland (1992); A Dangerous Woman (1993); Shattered Mind (1996) (TV); The Patron Saint of Liars (1998) (TV); Homegrown (1998); Resurrection (1999/II) (TV)) were all directed by her father.

    Rather nice of daddy. And:

    To promote her film, Secretary (2002), she posed for Playboy.

    When in doubt, show some boob.

    What’s prominent about this collection of geezers (my reaction to each one, incidentally, is almost identical to that of Rob Crawford’s)? Kronkite’s only notable achievements, as I recall, were (a) setting the stage for American defeat in Vietnam through his idiotic analysis of the Tet offensive, and (b) carrying out an evening broadcast one time after he had crapped in his pants as a result of the untimely kicking in of a laxative. Really, I don’t want to hear from him, or even of him, for the rest of my life. The rest of those bozos? I didn’t care what they thought when people actually knew who they were.

    Yes but she did a decent job bending over a desk and getting spanked by James Spader.  Granted, she might have reached the upper extent to her acting ability.  But if there was an Oscar awarded for getting a good butt whipping, I think Maggie should be considered strongly for it.

    Actually, I wouldn’t mind seeing many of the female members of this new celebrity blog bending over and getting a good spanking.

    I would mind seeing Walter getting spanked.  No, please.  Just put the old man in a nursing home somewhere.  Please.

    I would imagine that every post will be screened by the person’s publicist or personal assistant, but they can’t catch every ridiculous statement.  Remember all of the inane statements on Barbra’s personal site, the gullibility displayed there and her furor at being smacked down after falling for the hoax Shakespeare quote.  It will be like the silent movie stars who couldn’t find work after sound was added to films because their voices were terrible.  This blog will demonstrate that these people have no “voices” fit for public consumption. 

    After this all blows up in their faces, Arianna’s status will plummet along with the number of invitations to entertainment industry events.

    This will be fun, fun, fun.

    As for Huffington, her only talent appears to be figuring out how to become famous for being famous.  But, then, that’s what celebrity is all about today, isn’t it?  You don’t have to actually produce anything of interest, just get famous. 

    Works for a whole slew of here today, gone tomorrow (but all too frequently not soon enough) types.

    I have been thinking about how Murdoch’s proposal would work.  Is he talking about making every article commentable? That would be fun, and certainly put a lot of journo’s on their toes. Or would it be just columns?  But he wants to make money - will he rely on adverts, or a subscription model?
    How would he compete with the likes of Lileks and Mr Blair? Unless, of course, he doesn’t, and he employs said individuals?  So time to fess up tim, has young Murdoch sent Sarah over to do a bit of convincing?
