Coined the term weblog, never made a dime.


One of my

many RSS feeds lead me to this article on Wired Magazine:

http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/13.07/posts.html?pg=6?tw=wn_tophead_5

I'm not

sure what I am supposed to glean from it. While it is sad that that a pioneer

of the Internet like Jorn Barger is having trouble making ends meet, it seems

that he has no one to blame but himself. He apparently wrote progressively more

cryptic and incoherent blog entries over the years and that drove away readers—okay

I'll keep that in mind.

But the

article's implication that Mr. Barger's plight is a "sign of the

times" seems a stretch.
