The uber-blog is coming
Would you like to read a celebrity blog where famous people comment on everything?
"Arianna Huffington, the columnist and onetime candidate for governor of California, is about to move blogging from the realm of the anonymous individual to the realm of the celebrity collective. She has lined up more than 250 of what she calls 'the most creative minds' in the country to write a group blog that will range over topics from politics and entertainment to sports and religion. It is essentially a nonstop virtual talk show that will be part of a Web site that will also serve up breaking news around the clock. It is to be introduced May 9." More here.
This might be great thing. Arianna herself is quite a witty writer. So far she's got Walter Cronkite, David Mamet, Nora Ephron, Warren Beatty, James Fallows, Vernon E. Jordan Jr., Maggie Gyllenhaal, Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., Diane Keaton, Norman Mailer and Mortimer B. Zuckerman. Hmm. Imagine a blog with Billy Collins, Philip Roth, John Cleese, Dan Savage, Dave Barry, and Suzie Bright. Now that would be my favorite blog. Who would you like to see on your favorite blog?
