Not a lot to say about the Huffington Post (or the Huff and Puff as some are beginning to dub it). I think celebrities can have just as valid opinions as anyone else, but that the main reason people are interested in them is because they look pretty and we like to know who they’re sleeping with or what they’re wearing.
As for the celebrity blog… my first though was: “oh how cute, they even let the little retarded boy from Life Goes On write some stuff,” they I realized it was David Mamet. Allow me to paraphrase how I read his horrid piece:
I like computer… me make computer beep. I type stuff on computer. Computers, blogs
internetinterweb . BEEEEP. Now I am a fire engine, CLANG CLANG CLANG WHOOOOOOOO….
The blog appears to be the sideshow and the real meat is that the underlying code is supposed to be a Drudge Report killer. Who knows, I’ll probably check it out from time to time, but I’m betting the initial interest will wane pretty quickly unless they start telling us who they’re sleeping with.
