Open Letter to “The Committee”
How you doing?
In case you haven’t noticed, the internet is an awful big place.
And by big, I mean *REALLY REALLY REALLY* big. Actually, string another 50000 *REALLY*’s and you may get a small idea of how big it really really is. Really.
It is big enough so that everyone can find something fun and cheerful, interesting, provocative, and engaging to read. Something so big that everyone who has a will to deliver their thoughts and opinions on line should be able to do so. Something for which if you don’t like what you see, you can quite easily *go* *somewhere* *else*.
Now, while I and perhaps some of the other SF Metbloggers find your intense and frequent criticism and feedback borderline creepy, but flattering for the passion and attention with which you deliver such feedback, it’s … getting towards that last nerve.
This does not mean that we don’t appreciate or like the attention that our readers provide us with. On the contrary. Many of us quite enjoy it as it provides an opportunity for dialogue and discussion, and an opportunity to be challenged and to learn as well. This is why we’re writers and bloggers. We like writing. We like being read. We like people. We love our city of SF and are doing our damndest to give you a peep into why we love it.
There are plenty of other great sites that give this kind of perspective as well beyond just our metblogs.
Try out SFist or Friscosity for other perspectives. Or maybe you’ll just find a few favorites among the SF Bay Area Bloggers linkpool. You’re a smart kid, you can figure it out yourself, I’m sure. Maybe those writers will be more to your liking.
One thing of point:
It’s not my job to be your personal tour guide into SF. I don’t *owe* you anything. Re: Annie Lin’s, Goh Nakamura, and Kris Racer’s performance this weekend, links are provided so you can read up on those artists, reviews, and mp3′s YOURSELF. That’s kinda… that whole fun thing about links and stuff from that Really Really Really big internet thing.
Ahhh, and also …frankly, based on your inflamatory and inconsiderate/inconsistant behavior in posting and directing commentary online here, it makes me want to almost *avoid* promoting some of my favorite venues and spots in case *you* decide to crash it and ruin it for me. Now ain’t that a stinker.
