One of the problems everyblog faces, is that of exposure. We all have something to say (however purile) but we all, at some time or other, feel we are shouting into the abyss. so....mashin' up old skool and nu-tech...how about the *Blog=Bomb*
You get 1 smart-bomb, from Blogger, or Atom, or Moveable Type, or whoever. The concept of a 'Joker' is far from new, but Technorati or whoever could REALLY make it count (yeah, yeah, it's open to abuse, but I deal with concepts; let the others deal with the detail already).
You decide that *this* subject really matters..more than any other, at ANY time....so you play a *Blog=Bomb*. The full might of the Boyz-in-da-Blog are placed fair and square behind YOUR post, to ensure that once, just once, EVERYONE IN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE knows your views. Head of the banners, Search-engine Supremo, these lads could make it happen.
You'd play the card careful, after all, you only get one, but mate, what a Joker. Sure, it'd be open to abuse, and sure, it needs a little work, but the concept of Mr Warhol's 15-minutes would apply on a scale even his demented, fucked-up psyche couldn't have comprehended...this time they'd HAVE to listen. Top of every list you've ever referred-to, if only for a day.....
But wait. Think of the come-down. You've spunked your one and only chance of changing world opinion on dissin' the President of the US, only to realise the bastard is only EVER going to be there for a couple of years anyway. Boy, do you feel stupid. You've expounded the virtues of a world without War, or Hate, or McDonalds or Shell Oil, but tomorrow....they've forgotten. And not just the people that were listening, but everyone.
They've ALL forgotten.
Is that better than them never having listened, or is it better to have Loved and Lost.......?
