Yesterday I signed a bunch of legal stuff at my new job. I do web development at The Princeton Review now. One of the things said that they respect their employees right to blog, but that if i mentioned some aspect of work i’d have to say that the opinions here are my own and in no way represent those of The Princeton Review or any of its affiliates or something like that. So yeah, these opinions are my own and in no way represent those of The Princeton Review or any of its affiliates or something like that.
It seems crazy that they mentioned blogs specifically in the little legal phone book they gave me. I always thought blogging was a bunch of socially awkward people saying “right now i’m listening to a mix with Elliot Smith and Mariah Carey that i made for my ex but i’ll probably never send,” and hoping for some comments to make them feel a little loved even if only in some cold fantasy digital sort of way. My friend took a class at NYU from like the grandfather of blogging or some shit. People are really into it being some big fucking deal wave of the future type shit. There was a blogger in When the Levees Broke, this thing Spike Lee made for HBO about New Orleans. It’s cache or something. I think the rockstar blogger/media of the future shit is total bs. People are going to get their news and opinions from people they agree with regardless of what medium it is presented in. I watch the Daily Show, you listen to Rush Limbaugh. I read lovebryan, you read http://gopandthecity.blogspot.com/ But I’m definitely not going to try to give my opinion or any news: I’m just listening to a mix with Elliot Smith and Mariah Carey that i made for my ex but i’ll probably never send–and I just figured that people would probably want to know that.
