More fame

KTRK's Michael McGuff interviewed yours truly plus Kevin and Anne for a pretty spiffy article on the local blog scene. Reading through it, I'm reminded that I apparently haven't lost my touch for giving colorful quotes:

"If there's one way that I'd like to see blogging change the media landscape, it's to provide some real competition for the professional pundits, many of whom in my opinion are partisan hacks and out of touch drones of conventional wisdom," Kuffner said.

Guess I won't be getting invited to any Professional Pundits Association dinners in the near future.

Regarding the sidebar links, I really do hate to give a list of favorite bloggers. Even restricting myself to only Texas blogs, there were easily another ten or twenty I could've included had I been permitted to do so. There's a reason my blogroll and Bloglines subscriptions list are so long. The tips for new bloggers and message about copyright are also worth reading. Check it out.

I am shocked, yes shocked, to find that you could be such an outspoken person. :-)

Considering that many people in the media are partisan hacks and out of touch drones, your quote is well stated.

I know that you meant to have my blog on there five times, but just forgot, but I'll let it go because you picked some other good sites.

McGuff is one of the Good Guys.

So, going to be at the next gathering, Msr. Outre de la Manchette?

Lair - Alas, we'll be out of town on July 5. Hopefully, I can make the next one. Thanks!

Hey, thanks for the plug. Maybe now I'll have an excuse to write something worth reading.
