This weekend, I read Happy Blogiversary, the Wall Street Journal’s review of 10 years of blogging. I found it first online, pointed to by Scott Karp because Dick Costolo cited Publishing 2.0 as one of his favorites.
Skimming it over the weekend, via satellite broadband, the video vignettes embedded in the piece wouldn’t play…the player told me I was a second-class citizen (not enough bandwidth). Oh well. Couldn’t watch Dennis Yang of TechDirt, either, until this morning on DSL. Even then, I had to wait for the entire video to stream in before it would play more than the 3 second WSJ intro. (Brightcove, you learned a lot from YouTube in usability terms… finish the job?)
Last night, I caught up with the print edition. Dick’s contribution was accompanied by a photograph there, too (not just online, which sometimes happens).
I have to ask… you made the Journal, but you got a photograph? Where’s the dot portrait?
Seriously, being thrown into the mix with Tom Wolfe, Christopher Cox, Newt Gingrich (!?), and Mia Farrow as a cultural commentator… not bad. But the dot portrait awaits.
