Hmm, I've also blu-tacked a comments feature onto As Above,
since it looks like this proposal is going to pass after all. It's
interesting to see a Nomic having an active impact on something other
than a pile of abstract rules and score tables...
Alliteration Sunday at BlogNomic; an ample award of aggregate to
anyone able to arrange an article so as to attach
assertations. An appealing if also asinine activity - is
Alliteration Sunday an act to amend and abolish, already? Ah,
almost achieved. I am acutely aware of how abberant an
entry such as this is. But it's worth 34 points.
Entrances to Hell is one of those little ideas
that will hang around and overlay itself on your worldview forever -
it's a collection of photos of forgotten-looking doorways and
bricked-up alleyways from around the UK (there's one in
presented as a guidebook of foul and mysterious gateways to the
netherworld. Graffiti as sigils of power, scrawled across deliberate and
desperate brickwork. It's a persuasive idea. [via everywhere]
More meta-tag bumph - GeoURL
maps the latitude and longitude of web pages, letting you find sites near
to your own in the physical world. I'd forgotten that Lewes was on the
Greenwich meridian line. [via Ole]
"This is the Ruleset for BlogNomic; all Players must obey
Ben and I
have been kicking the idea around for a while - a Nomic where players'
weblogs are a part of the game; where
rules can be passed that restrict, encourage or otherwise pivot around
the contents of people's pages ("Whenever anyone makes a posting,
they get a point", "Whenever anyone via-links to another player, that
player also gets a point", "Anyone using the letter 'e' in a
posting on a Monday is eliminated from the game", etc.).
It's called BlogNomic
and is being run as a weblog itself, with players being signed up as
contributors, proposals made as blog entries, and voting performed
through comments. A fresh, unsullied ruleset is awaiting further
ink; a fledgeling democracy is ready to consider your ideas, your
improvements and your subtle bids for harsh dictatorial conquest. Join
at the ground floor today.
