An amateur among professionals

The new issue of Wired has a nifty little article by Rex Sorgatz (wasn’t that the name of Julia’s rich dickhead husband in Brideshead Revisited?) that provides a flowchart-styled guide to the blowhards of the Internet. Sorgatz manages to squeeze me into the group, smackdab between Michael Arrington and Jeff Jarvis. I am, of course, at once pleased and humbled to be included among such august company. But I also feel a slight sense of shame in that I don’t think I’ve fully earned the honor. I have enough self-awareness to know this: I’ll never be able to blow as hard as those guys.
