Blogging Can Save Your Life!

Blogging Can Save Your Life!

A fascinating story of one blogger’s encounter with a new girlfriend, and how his posting about her on his blog led to an amazing revelation from a reader.

I’ve never received any kind of crank message related to a blog entry. “She’s not the person she claims to be” sounds more like a line of dialogue from a Hollywood thriller, not real life. In spite of my incredulity, I couldn’t write it off as some kind of prank. Whoever wrote the letter knew too many details about New Girl to just be some random person playing a joke. Was this person telling the truth, or was this someone with a personal vendetta against New Girl?

It gets even murkier later on. Read the whole thing here.

This is the kind of value $4 million gets you nowadays. Whirlpool broadband’s story explained the cost breakdown of Richard Alston’s site:

The $4 million cost to taxpayers included:

  • $1.2 Million spent on website development
  • $956,000 spent on hosting and support services
  • $928,000 spent on software; and
  • $661,000 spent on hardware.

That’s a hell of a lot of money for a site that gets significantly fewer hits than Instapundit. Especially when a template of that quality could be found for free on one of numerous open-source web development sites.

“I would have thrown in a Plasma TV for every member of the department in a $2 million dollar quote,” said Reid Hall, an Australian web developer.

Note: This is the guy who decides Australia’s policy on the internet. God help us all.
