Well, that was easy.

For the last few months, I’ve been mulling over a longish article cum rant, about weblogging, livejournal, usenet, spam, distributed interface design, the tragedy of the commons and infinite return. But with one thing being another, I never quite got the round-tuits to actually put it all down on “paper” at once.

So of course, someone else came along and did it. Well, not quite — there were some larger points about semi-closed communities and the repetition of horrible interface decisions that I wanted to make — but the gist of it is there, and he hits pretty much every “so that’s it then, we’re all going to die” bullet point I had in mind, and with a lot fewer extraneous adjectives than I’d use.

Go read it now.
