The Web Celeb 25

Congratulations to San Francisco’s Violet Blue on her naming to the Forbes Web Celeb 25. Go Violet Go!

“The Forbes.com Web Celeb 25 is a list of the biggest, brightest and most influential people on the Internet. From bloggers to podcasters to YouTube stars, these are the people who are creating the digital world from the bottom up.”

Of note: As San Franciscans like to believe they are the center of the digital universe, this list is dominated by our brethren to the south. Maybe next year… WTF!?!?.

    Thank God, for her sake, it wasn’t a beauty contest…

    Go, Violet indeed! Congratulations. You certainly work it and deserve it!! (Personally, lumping in Lonelygirl15 and Perez Hilton – let alone giving them the top 2 slots – is a bit of an insult to the actual 23 other journalists on that list. “Whatev” – as the kids say.)

    Tyler82, whatever your taste in women or men, of which must be dubious at best, I encourage you to keep it to yourself next time. Troll.

    Tyler82, normally I don’t feed the trolls, but I’ve seen you comment on this blog numerous times, and they’ve usually been thoughtful remarks. But this time your comment was not only out of line, but rude. As Richard said, keep it to yourself next time–and you might want to get your eyes checked, too.

    oh, also… CONGRATS, Violet! Well deserved.

    Go forth, brave cupcake warrior! Congrats indeed!

    Yay Violet!

    Lonelygirl? WTF? She’s an actress, and I don’t mean to diss her, but how has she influenced anyone? I would give it to the director/producer of Lonelygirl.

    Tyler- when are you posting a picture of yourself? Heh heh heh.

    On a lighter note… (well, perhaps not calorie-wise). Speaking of Miette, FYI: their second location [ 449 Octavia St. at Linden – facing the HV Green & around the corner from Cafe Grillades ] opens *tomorrow*!
