Jeff, please...!? 

We really enjoyed reading Jeff Jarvis' blogging about the media, but recently he's turned all patriotic and nationalist. He arrives at unprecedent heights with his latest post about what makes America exeptional. We really don't understand why some people have limited points of view like that. It all seems to be about we vs. them. "while we are under attack", oh your so like under attack like no-one has ever been. We also really feel sorry for the people who left comments to Jeff's entry. If someone opposes the general patriotic tenor, he/she gets slashed immediately. so what about free speech and tolerance?

UPDATE: this is to remind you to have a look at those disturbing comments! which we probably get due to Glenn Reynold's linking to it.

UPDATE: We also do like Ross Mayfield's explanation of the thingie, even though it's more complicated than Anil's.

ULA vs Choire/Clorisse or Chorine 

In a recent argument between the ULA and gawker Ed. Choire, Clorisse or Chorine or whatever his name is, over whether Gawker [...] didn't want to believe that Peck would've known about the ULA when he wrote his Moody review or not,ULA concludes: The point is that the new Gawker, in his defense of the status quo, of things as they are, is very much part of the past -- a stale way of operating and thinking which the ULA is moving beyond. - poor Choire.
