Yesterday’s blogging experience was unpleasant — and I was only a bystander. You will all, by now, have heard of Kathy Sierra’s ordeal … and I will not replay is for you. Suffice to say, the less links that are shared to those who are defending their actions (or lack of action) the better.
But as I was considering closing down for the evening, I saw a very funny Twitter that reminded me of some of the BEST things about the blogosphere. Other bloggers. The fun ones.
In a burst of silliness, David Armano and a few others decided to change their Twitter icon to a marsupial picture. So I joined in, going for the ever cool Platypus for my icon (realising I was cheating — as Scotty Monty points out, it’s a monotreme). Then I saw this from Drew McLellan:
I can hear my mother now – "if Armano & Gavin told you to dress like a wombat, would you?" Sadly, apparently the answer is yes.
It cracked me up. And was needed after yesterday’s gravitas.
Oh … and if you want to join in … it seems marsupial madness has given way to star wars silliness.
Over and out.
