This site has just come to my attention. It consists of cartoons of various bugs with brief descriptions of what they do - like, for example, kill you. It is currently one of the big blogs of the world. It is beautifully done by an Australian student. But it is so odd, so strange, that it raises questions like, what do blogs do, what are they for? The answers 'anything you like' and 'everything' seem inadequate. I suppose the technology creates an open landscape in which oddities like this are bound to appear and, for a time, thrive. But is it really that open? Aren't such things inventions of the technology itself? But, hey, what do I know? The young are different.
