Am I the *only* one here who didn't realize that Rob Malda was a weblogger, too?

No, but only because I have no idea who he is, either. Man, I sometimes long to get into a heated discussion of the relative merits of Herotodus versus Xenophon around here...those guys are my rock stars.

What's slashdot itself? A very, very popular weblog. Links to stories, author's commentary, comments from readers.. all taken to the nth.

Oh great. Now everyone will read and post to Taco Hell. Just as I was putting it into the list of "journals I read" for my weblog redesign.

Ya know, that was the only part of /. that was almost annoyance-free. Thanx! :o)

Nice to see that someone else knows that purple is The New Orange.

Maybe my idea on what constitutes a "weblog" is a little broader than most, but pointing to TacoHell as evidence that Rob Malda is a weblogger sounds like digging up a Tin Machine album in order to demonstrate that David Bowie is a musician.

Let's get Kottke to blog it!
He won't like it!
He hates everything....
Hey, Kottke!

Herodotus kicks Xenophon's ass, but I'll take Diogenes or Thucydides over either of them any day.

Wow, Malda baring all ... very slowly. The only thing that gets me is that it seems integrated into the rest of slashdot (same "sections" box and links on the left, etc.), but I read Slashdot daily and I've never seen a link to this. Is he hiding it?

Yes, Slashdot should go in the weblog category, though. I believe it's the most popular weblog, no?

Malda's blog looks like /. because he uses Slash (the code that runs /.) to run it. I think he uses his site as a testing grounds for new versions of Slash.

I always considered /. the first 'blog. It's been around for years, and it pretty much defined the logging style of news dissemination.

Tim Berners-Lee was writing a weblog in 1993. Glenn Davis was doing it in 1994. Dave Winer - 1994 or 1995? Not sure. Anyway, you get the picture.

Rob Malda's weblog looks like /. because Rob Malda designed /.
