a nation of geeks
We really are, us Aussies. This morning I followed a link from ProBlogger to a new Australian blog index, AustralianBlogs.com.au. I added my links and posted the link on port80 (new goal guys: the Perth tag needs to be bigger than Melbourne or Sydney – it’s already bigger than Adelaide and Canberra). I had an email chat with Jon, one of the guys behind AustralianBlogs.com.au (AND a fellow Perthite), asking which one was his blog… and 9 hours later, the official AustralianBlogs.com.au blog launches. Nothing says geek like “I spent Saturday night launching a blog because some random chick gave me shit about not having one”.
The AustralianBlogs.com.au site itself is a perfect use case for tag clouds – I know, I know, tag clouds are supposed to be the new mullet, but seriously, you can lose hours clicking on things that people categorise themselves as. The diversity and talent shown is amazing – I’m proud of my fellow countrymen and women. A nation of geeks indeed.
