Place your bets on the future of Pajamas Media! I’m part of this new blog deal, which PajamaCzar Roger L. Simon explains here; you are all, bloggers and investors alike, invited to join our multiconvergent synerglobal infotacular hegemon. We’re the Hegemon That Cares!

The Moderate Voice has some thoughts, and here’s an update from Roger:

150 blogs now having signed up for Pajamas Media (not to mention untold milblogs) and literally hundreds more making inquiries, including blogs from Siberia and Shanghai! And they come in all shapes, sizes and subject matter – we even have a speleology blog!

No matter how it is computed, our assembled monthly unique visitors are now well into the millions.

This’ll be fun.

    1. Well, hell.  If we’re going to have a cave blog, I suppose I can start doing whisky reviews again.

    1. I was hoping for more commenters on this thread because I’m just not sure I understand the program here.  I attribute my slowness to comprehend to bleary eyes and info-overload from too many long days recently.  So – can some one tell me in short sentences what this means?  Is this primarily the launch of a back office syndication of advertising negotiations (pricing, placement, etc.) that will essentially leave the ‘front end’ blogs independent and intact?

    1. leave the front end’ blogs independent and intact

      I talked to Roger on the phone today discussing some ideas in the capitalization of the start up phase. Yes, blogs will remain independent, just part of the Pajamas Media network. In simple terms, Pajamas Media will be a news aggregation service generating original content news from bloggers fed to/thru a central site, much like a UPI or AP of the Blogosphere.

      The second goal, and the way for all bloggers involved to benefit financially, is that PM will contract for large ad “buys”, with the ad’s fed into the PM network Blogs and having a much larger reach than the current methods of individual bloggers contracting with the Blog Ad services. PM can tell the ad buyer that his product will have millions of views/day. Roger feels that the really big ad money has not delved into Blogs yet because of this fragmentation. It’s an exciting project.

    1. OFF TOPIC
      Govt will not abuse Senate control: PM

      Tim we need a counter for this day counting down the days in the corner of your site grin grin and an explanation to USA peoples etc how huge this is compared to similar control in USA system

      Prime Minister John Howard has vowed not to abuse the government’s control of the Senate, but will push through planned reforms.

      The government will gain control of the Senate on July 1, handing it the power to push through previously blocked reforms such as changes to employment laws and the full sale of Telstra.

      Mr Howard said on Tuesday night the government would take the responsibility seriously.

      “I think it’s very important the government handle its new Senate position in a sensible way,” he said during a speech on family policy at a Sydney hotel.

      “(But) we should not lose the opportunity to do a lot of things that our supporters have been disappointed that we haven’t been able to do – within proper reason.

      “We must not give the impression to the Australian public that the opportunity has gone to our heads.”

      Mr Howard acknowledged it would be juggling act for the government but he was confident it could wield power in a balanced way.

      “In the end we have to strike a balance,” he said.

      “We didn’t expect to win control of the Senate … it’s a wonderful experience, it’s an opportunity we are not going to pass up, but it is not an opportunity that is going to give us an intoxicated sense of our own importance.”

    1. It will not be an abuse to put legislation through the senate which has been blocked by habitual opposition by Labor combined with small moonbat parties.
      If the Australian people feel that abuse is happening they will vote them out next time around.
      Unless the NPO* are still as bad as they are now.

  1. This sounds like so much fun! A worldwide pajama partywhere the truth always stays up late.

    You can completely cut out the MSM and just report on eachother’ anaysis of eachother’s intepretation of eachother’s analysis of eachother’s intepretation of eachother’s analysis.

    Just like the MSM, except there no budget or balls exhibited yet to really place a trusted conduit on the ground in play.

    This will be even funnier than watching Air America fuck up.
