get 10x as much useful coverage out of joystiq or other mmo sites blogs and news articles

a little less boring material about flights, food, and blah blah blah - a little more INFORMATION would be nice

it's like a snooooooooooozefest reading those blogs

is this why people go listen/watch the 'Yahtzee' rants?   i really only read very very few blogs - i like getting something out of my reading - pleasure reading is more like ..fantasy tales not someones blog about "this morning i had 2 cups of coffee instead of 1;  work; lunch; came home fed my lizard to my cat .... now i'm going drinking yaaaaay"  useless boring info

who is using Sony's phyre engine in any upcoming MMOs?  what is Blizz secret MMO about?  what  MMO is microsoft going to come out or what big gaming company are they going to buy??? [they just bought caligari last month so they are boning up on entertainment, graphics, and other related companies]

put some meat on the soup bone or don't labor over the stove ....

 

on that note - bit the bullet and ordered adobe cs3 web premium today - so i can finally get around to my side projects of some new algs and photoshop plugins & filters ...that and dreamweaver will save me some time on crafting decent wikis and documentation - user & internal facing docsites in xml or maybe the new html 5 when adobe puts out an update (adobe needs to get homer simpson to do a commercial for them   a DOH be)

could really care less about flash - for the most part i hate it on sites - even on broadband it slows things down and doesnt add a lot of benefit - cost-benefit analysis says pffffffffffft to flash

hmm maybe i'll create some adaptive plugins that adapt to user tastes ?  maybe some evolutionary algorithms and it can run over night tweaking millions of passes through an image and delivering up categorized samples to the user so he/she can settle on a set of algs+params that suite his taste and priorities - *shrug* who knows , that one is a wayssssssssss off - way too much to do that's easier first

C++ya,

Yup, I'd second that.. To go through all the trouble of going there... They sure aren't giving anything to intice anyone to read their posts. Amazingly bland, uneventful, and promises of putting up information at some point that I wont need to read because Kotaku or any other site with people there already has posted.

Bleh for stupid personal travel bios and even game information.  I want to hear the stories about CEO's bitch slapping eachother like they've been doing.

I want to hear stories about the dood who got kicked out for threatening a developer to give him a better explanation.

That's all I really care about.

Yes, more bloggers everytwhere need to learn that, unless you are writing for a travel site, no one ever wants to hear about your plane trip or your hotel.  Ever.

If you are writing about those things to fill space, please spare us.  If you have nothing noteworthy to say, please just don't write at all.  Seriously.
