WO/MAN ON CAMPUS
Well, you don't
get much bigger than CamWorld. Or Cameron Barrett, for that matter.
On a scale ranging from a pea to the giant
ball of twine, Cameron is a supernova. And like every supernova,
he burns; burns for the day that all Web designers may live in copyright
peace and harmony.
is a passionate man when it comes to the Web. If you cross him he'll
set his organised crime ring
of designers upon you. 'Coz Cameron is set to be the first Web Developer
Union leader. He will bring the World Wide Web to a standstill and
e-commerce to it's knees if he doesn't get his way. He is the force
of righteousness and all that is good. And don't you fucking forget
helped build the web community with her now-interstellar eatonweb
was a time that, if you weren't on the portal, you weren't a weblog.
Currently there are more portals than you can poke a dead dog at,
but Brigitte hasn't lost that sense of being the blog-queen; a great,
multi-tentacled, flightless cyborg that mesmerises a weblog with
its antennae before sucking the life-force from it.
has built more sites
than was once thought humanly possible; which lends credence to
the theory that she is the blog-queen. Her eternal history with
weblogging has also gifted her with wisdom beyond the ken of mortal
man. She understands that the weblog world is just
like high-school. And she knows that's all you need to know.
is the "me" in "peterme".
And the "pin" in "epinions".
And the "hot" in "hotdamn". Peter has made the
decision "to pronounce the word "weblog" as wee'- blog".
Which sounds like something you'd take to a urologist. He also boasts
to have had the same design since 1998. Can you tell?
When not discussing
web stuff, Peter sticks to his three great loves; beer, movies,
and beer in movies. Which is why he escapes the "Jocks"
category. Now, if he only spoke about himself and had a head shot
on site... wait a sec... this may need to be rethought...
used to write BLOAT!,
but it has since been taken over by T. Radhius. When Sally wrote
it, it was a cutting piece of commentary about the state of the
weblogging nation that left nothing but blood before her razor-sharp
wit. With Radhius behind the wheel, BLOAT!
has become a "column"
about weblogs. Oh yay.
still hangs on as a Big Man On Campus, but as it's usefulness increases,
it's popularity will shrink. Who cares if it gives insightful views
into the strengths and weakness of the best and worst of weblogs?
You want bitchy comments and sarcastic remarks wrapped up in offensive
language, or you want nothing at all, right!?!
After all is
said and done, it is well understood that Wendell Wittler is the
true Big Man On Campus. Though you may deny it; nay, fear it; Wendell
Wittler has the weblog community in the palm of his sticky-fingered
hand. For neither power, fame nor fortune can stand in the way of
someone willing to produce something like scamworld.
Wendell is the puppet master.
It may turn
out that Wendell and Cameron are twins, rather than that guy...
um... you know... watshisname.
Cameron is the symbol of ultimate good; Wendell of ultimate evil.
The only thing that normal people can do about this is sit back,
munch on some popcorn, and wait for the end battle sequence to begin.
