The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

And their practitioners never leave the house

The more I read about this Web 2.0 business, the more I think it's some sort of mass delusion, a bizarre masturbatory frenzy that, had it the flexibility, would quickly devolve into endless (and solitary, one assumes) sessions of autofellatio.

Which, says Go Flock Yourself, is not quite accurate it's already there:

  • Both are attempted by many people, and most attempts end in frustration and outright failure

  • Both are ill-advised means of compensating for something else that is missing (i.e., either a worthwhile and tangible product, or a healthy relationship)

  • Both will leave you with a bad taste in your mouth

  • Successful implementation of either can make you famous on the internet

And, as they say, you've only heard the half of it.
