: Tony Pierce gets his dander up re AOL blogs:

:anyone who has seen an sophomore year computer science student’s homework assignment has seen what i am seeing with the aol journal: copycat bullshit created to see if it could be re-created.

aol is not providing their members with anything they cant get just as easilly anywhere else. they are not providing their users with anything that they have asked for.

and once again they are creating something that isnt even half as good as what they are trying to copy.

Read it for the entertainment value alone; that’s always a good reason to read Tony.
