The Blogosphere—a land where the smart get smarter
The connected connect to one another, and the losers go home.

BLOGOSPHERE In this essay, written for The Village Voice by Whitney Pastorek — editor of Pindeldyboz, a barely solvent literary magazine based in Astoria, Queens — some thoughts on how how blogs are ruining her life.
