ALS

Think you've got a problem? Then discover how you should pick your nose with a fish fork. Some guys really don't get all the luck. Not when they bleed to death from eating blueberries.

The Butterfly Guy Effect

Swimming Suits, Motor Boats, Sheet Music, Auto Parts, Movies and Music, Online Maps. Looks like the Butterfly Guy has a plan.

Speedle

Speedle It's a little like Yahoo! News - Most-emailed content, Third Voice, and a collaborative blog. The background on the company can be found here. It utilizes Microsoft's Passport technology, e-mail, and instant messaging. The home page has the most popular links updated in real time. Very cool.

Snappy Dresser

Snappy Dresser is now to return Tuesday. Before I went to bed last night it said Monday. I haven't been there for a while and don't know what's up. They used to be The Daily Instigator, (now a porn site) but went down because:

"First of all, the word 'Daily' in your title is a death sentence for your ego when you skip a day. Or in our case, a few weeks. Second, it's hard to arrange legitimate interviews with a word like 'Instigator' in your title. The most important moral: don't think of possible magazine titles while on your sixth beer of the evening."

I was also going to link My Boot for his "She hates my futon" story, but it appears down or gone. This was going to be a happy post with me saying things like: "No time in history have so many people done so much for so little." But now I wonder is all this altruism fleeting? Is your URL doomed for porn? The rationale for ftrain is why I am on the web myself. How long can good people with good ideas continue to give?

Censorship on a public Blog?

Censorship on a public Blog? - When someone posts a link to content that others find shocking to a public blog (in this case Flazoom.com) how should the blog-master handle it. This got me thinking about how we handle the content at MeFi - which is better? Removing the post a few layers, or bereating the poster with lots of mean comment posts?

Lance wrote a great fantasy piece that he makes ammends for here, but his loss is our gain. He's started a new Reality list, which, if you were lucky enough to be on the old Reality list that Alexis Massie used to run, you'll remember it being a string of fantastic journeys cooked up in several writers' imaginations. Somehow I know the new list will be just as good.
