Check It Out

While I'm off being disgustingly productive at the things people actually pay me for, I recommend test driving One More Asshole. It's a newish blog, but if you've been reading the comments in the Sonoco thread here, you're already familiar with the author, William, and probably impressed.

Do I agree with William on everything? Oh, hell, no. But he should be lots of fun to argue with.

Go read.

(No. I'm honestly not being malicious. I take genuine delight in the fact that a blog named "One More Asshole" was inspired by a contentious comment thread.)

Number 1: Customary gratitude for the boost.

Number 2: ... oh, thank you, Activia.

Number 3: Debate for debating's sake seems masturbatory to me (stay with me on this). My time being at a premium, like anybody else's, I debate to see my mind changed. I'm not looking for the most part to change minds, that's up to other minds.

Number 4: Coming in particular from an editor's editor, the recommendation makes me blush.

Juniper, it's even better than that. If you haven't, check out his blogroll. :)

William, I'm not far off on arguing. Aside from the occasional nonsense argument (which I only inflict on willing friends), I'm generally arguing to test my ideas. Sometimes to force myself to get them into shape.

An editor's editor? Now who's blushing?
