Rating links [technorati.com] to Shirky's article on weblogs.
Top links right now: Scripting News 1490, Boing Boing Blog 1085, Instapundit.com 609. Megnut is #6 with 267. licentious radio is #21 with 16. (That's the number of "inbound blogs".) We presume licentious radio's rank will fall as more websites link to the article. It's interesting how easy it is to find evidence of Shirky's point.
DaveNet Dave points to Shirkey on weblogs. I don't quite get Dave's point. Shirky says weblog readership is a "power law" deal, where very few weblogs get huge readership, and almost all weblogs get very little readership, with many weblogs in between. I guess Dave is saying that weblogs are more niche-oriented. But I thought that's what Shirky was saying, too.
Interesting claim on the Opera/MSN story.... They suggest MSN tweaked a stylesheet to work better with Opera 6. When Opera 7 came out, the tweaked stylesheet broke the layout, because of changes in the browser. I haven't tested this, but it sounds plausible (slashdot comment).
First, make your browser follow the standards. Second, when browser-sniffing, be aware that new versions will come out eventually, and the new versions will be specifically *different* than the current version. So limit your targeting to known versions. When Opera 7 comes out, give it some generic stylesheet until you take the time to figure out what you need to do to support it.
I guess that makes it official, then. I am the Anti-zeldman [google.com]. (ha ha)
