The "Change for the Sake of Change" Issue



If you look carefully to the left-hand column, you may notice a new feature called "The Tag Board," by which visitors may "interact" with this "web site." I don't suggest that you attempt to be funny. The box for the posts is quite small, and you run the very real risk that your reactionary witticism will be clipped off and someone will have to scroll to see what you were saying. A lot of effort for what is sure to be a small payoff [an experience not unlike the one of reading the crap in this part of the site.]

Suggested tag material:
"Word."
"Tell it, brother man."
"Fuck that honkey shit!"
"Jesus Christ, you are so f'in funny."
"And handsome, too."
"How can I send you five dollars?"
"Five dollar? Fuck this guy is funny! How can I send you fifty bucks?"
"I am a venture capitalist and would like to list your site for an IPO, and give you thirty million dollars. How does that sound, bub?"
"HOLY SHIT YOUR RICH! CAN I BORROW A FINSKY I NEED SOME MONIE"
"CAN YOU PLEASE PLAY THE NEW JA RULE SONG OH MY GOD HE IS SO HOT I LOVE HIM CARSON DALY IS SOOOOOO CUTE WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"

etc, etc.

Try it out, tag something up, be a hero in your community. Let's throw it in the water and see if it floats.

For the weekend, I think that I am going to be in a Courier type of mood. Please don't be alarmed by the new typeface. It's probably not permanent. I just felt that I needed to try something a bit different, shake things up a skoach. You may not know this, but once in a while, it's good to take these little types of risks--stick your big toe into the deep end and see what the cold feels like. Yeah, that's right. I did it.

Enjoy your new low-tech, more interactive reading experience.
