Does anyone else just not get what the big deal is about Kottke? He made a cool tiny font once, but I’m not really clear what makes him so fascinating. Plus, his site is a fucking mess — a mishmash of links (occasionally with comments), interspersed with longer prose at seemingly random intervals.
I’m not saying this to knock the guy. He seems intelligent and thoughtful. But I don’t get what exactly he offers over, say, 10,000 other pretty smart dudes online, except perhaps the sheer amount of stuff on his site. Why are people paying him to do this?
