In the beginning

Back in the Cretaceous period there were no blogs. Then, sometime in the late Quaternary the first blog crawled out of the MUD and developed legs.

Evolution was rapid. Blogs bred and mutated to occupy every environmental niche on the web. Some acquired wings, some acquired fur, some even acquired stupidity. There was a niche for everyone.

But there were two clouds on the horizon.

First, the population expanded exponentially. More and more blogs were being forced to share the same ideas. Intellectual space became limited, forcing out the less aggressive blogs.

Second, and far more serious, was Febrile Warming. As more and more TLAs were released into the iconosphere ideas became trapped and a positive feedback mechanism started to heat brains all over the planet. Cold certainties began to melt into the Oceans of Ignorance. The Intellectual Gulf stream was pushed south and warm fuzzy thoughts were diverted away from Europe and back towards the New World.

And still more and more blogs poured out, choking thought in a deluge of persiflage.

Just like this one, really.
