SotB4/06; Wailin' - Get It?; South Park in Amsterdam; More P!nk;

Several things on this temperate Wednesday evening:
  • State of the Blogosphere, April 2006 is up. Excerpt: ...on average, a new weblog is created every second of every day - and 19.4 million bloggers (55%) are still posting 3 months after their blogs are created. That's an increase both absolute and relative terms over just 3 months ago, when only 50.5% or 13.7 million blogs were active. In other words, even though there's a reasonable amount of tire-kicking going on, blogging continues to grow as a habitual activity. In addition to that, about 3.9 million bloggers update their blogs at least weekly.
  • Clever name for country(ish) trio: The Wailin' Jennys. (Say it out loud a couple of times.)
  • Are you a libertarian? Gonna be in Amsterdam this August? Why not join South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker for Reason Magazine's summer conference? (How much trouble could those two get into in Amsterdam, anyway...) Note to self: Keep an eye out for Anne Frank jokes (and fingers-in-dykes jokes) during the fall season of South Park.

  • TBSATIOAAE has a follow-up to last week's post about P!nk. Excerpt: I was readers pointed out! Tom Asacker observed that my examples of smart women were a generation or two too old. Patricia said, "There aren't many young celebrity women equated with high intelligence that could be mentioned as effective role models." Anastasia Goodstein at YPulse made the good point that the high profile of the video may be taken as proof of its veracity.
