Jo is closing up The Modernity Ward. I used to be kind of sad when blogs I like shut down, but it really is a different world. People email me and ask “How do I get in touch with the bloggers?” and I’m now asking back “What bloggers are left?” Everyone’s been coopted or gone to Facebook or Twitter or just moved on.
And I don’t know. That seems right to me. There was a great moment when everyone was like “What the fuck? Let’s try a bunch of stuff and see what works!” and now we know what works, and by and large, it’s not for lone individuals to do this.
Which is also not to say that I think this isn’t awesome, because you know I do.
But I think it’s understandable that it shakes out this way. That seems to be the shape of the thing.
Still, it feels like it’s getting empty.
So, I hope the kids come up with something cool to occupy all our times.
Ha ha ha.
