Not to mention the fact that he attributes a sizable portion of Twitter's valuation to my socially networked diet and exercise regimen. I liked that.

From "The Re-education of Michael Kinsley," by Ken Auletta, The New Yorker, May 13, 1996, a profile of Slate's founding editor:On some things, Kinsley was implacable. To Esther Dyson's claim that a good Internet editor was "an intellectual bartender" who listened more than he spoke, Kinsley conceded only, "I have come several steps in her direction. Originally, I said no to bulletin boards. But I think Esther has the idea that this technology changes the nature of life itself. I think she's slightly carried away. Even if her vision of the Internet as a community for current users is true, it will be less true for future users. I don't want to sound like an arrogant asshole who's become an Internet fascist, but there is a reason that some people get paid as writers and some don't. I don't want to go to a restaurant and be told, 'This is a community restaurant, and the guy at the next table is cooking for you!' "

Wil, did you know that FeedBurner also places ads on websites? The neat thing is that you can place them in line with blog posts, not just on the side or top.
