Alright, I’ll admit that I slow down (just a little) when there is a car wreck on the side of the road. I even stay on the Bill O’Reilly’s show a little longer then I should when I am channel surfing (that car wreck habit is hard to break). Therefore, yes, I admit that I do have the web-rag called valleywag.com in my Google reader. About half of its stuff is pure trash, and it’s been a little more exotic lately than I would like. Not that I am a prude or anything, but it has recently added a new blogger that gives tips and instructions on the best ways to get hookers. Great work guys, keep saving the whales â€¦
I have never been a big fan of hookers (sorry girls), but it really doesn’t bother me that I have to wade through blog stories about $20k per night hookers and how you should be nice to them if I can get a good insider valley-technology story along the way. Note to people who can afford to pay for $20k per night hookers: next time, please get a 10k one and send the other 10k here.
These ValleyIdiots just happen to be in a really cool place to get the scoop on technology stories ahead of others. Lately, they have been hammering Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia, because he is dating two girls or something like that. The guy changes the world, and they are concerned about his dating habits. Again, I can deal with all of this in order to get a good valley-tech story in the ruff.
Here is my major complaint. If I read a blog every day, I like to be able to make comments on it. I believe that comments are the life blood of the true conversations of this enterprise 2.0/ESN/(put name here). These ValleyIdiots make you go through an approval process before you can be allowed to make comments on their blog (I guess the ultimate Captcha) . Come on guys, get off your pompous valley-high and let the rest of the world play.
