It's a funny parody, kind of. I consider both NTK and Popbitch to be must-reads.

Absolutely must-reads, but NTK is the far wittier and relevant of the two. In fact, every week, what shows up in NTK shows up shortly thereafter on Slashdot and blogs around the world, NTK being one of the best up-stream sources of interesting links out there.

NTK's jabs in today's email are pretty much on-target. Can't wait to see the retaliation.

One of my favourite sarcastic updates, certainly. That said, a lot of this week's issue came from... here!

But then they're on holiday at the moment, skeleton staff, blah blah and indeed blah.

And they do usually do aloof sneering rather than out and out vitriol.

(ooh, will that be next week's "registered at the post off ice as..."?)

Well, I already know most of the salacious gossip relating to the NTK editors. But I doubt it'll be that vicious, given the work that NTK did behind the scenes to help Popbitch when it was threatened with legal action, and when its web hosts gave it the push.

Probably something about nerdish devotion to chocolate.
