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.
