This afternoon was a fun time at Hearne’s house with all of the staffers learning how to use the system and hearing some of the logic behind the brainchild of The Lazarus Group content management system. I like how new technology is driving the KCC redesign even if most everyone there (like me) was really more concerned with the pizza and the beer.
In the end, it’ll be up to you jerks to decide whether or not this thing is successful. Personally, I think all independent publishing ventures are exciting inasmuch as I enjoy farting into the cyber world with various changes in tonality and pitch. Very wise computer programmers once noted: "Garbage in, garbage out" and what I like about KCC is that the content has always taken precedence. MAJOR CHANGE: Comments now require an initial registration and a login but I guess this part of KC cyber space wants to emphasize quality over quantity and a very smart dude at the meeting said, "So what in an anonymous douchebag doesn’t leave a comment." It’s an interesting theory.
Like I said, this whole Internet thing is nothing but a Grand Experiment started by Al Gore and now going into the Tea Party era where we’ll all be using nothing but gold bought by way of Glenn Beck as currency. Regarding my part in this: Don’t expect any more fact checking on my acerbic anti-white humor because my writing has always been about giving you devils the what for. Accordingly, I captured a bit of our renegade spirit here at KCC while Laz offered our resident Latina Vixen Maria a bit of instruction.
To be forthright, I’m psyched but maybe that’s just because I get my own category where I can regularly insult pissant readers at length. I’m looking forward to it.
