Blogging? Never Heard of It.


Update! Update! Not only is Sasha Frere-Jones a BOY, but ZP, author of I Hate The New Yorker, is a GIRL.

This kind of turns my whole world upside down, as I had very clear mental images of both, and they're clearly all wrong.

Check out this article from 2000 in The New Yorker about this crazy new-fangled blog thing.

Then go read Emdashes, a blog about all things New Yorker.

Then go read I Hate The New Yorker,
a blog by a dude who feels about the New Yorker much the same way I feel about Catholicism- a loyal apostacy.

Finally, read S/FJ, just cuz she rocks. Oh, and she writes for the New Yorker sometimes, too.

Whoa. That's more embarrassing than calling Evelyn Waugh a girl.
This does now change my whole perception of his writing. Huh.

the author of "i hate the new yorker" is also of the female persuasion though you've made an error that almost all of her blog-readers have made. and, ironically, she thought s/fj was a girl too, for the first months that s/fj appeared in the nyer. so go figure.
