Madison Snaps gone?

Postby Nataraj Hauser » Wed Sep 10, 2008 4:05 pm

I miss the Madison Snaps this week? Is it gone for good, or just taking a vacation? Nataraj / eyeDance

Hmm, I was wondering why Madison Miscellany hadn't been updated in a while. I hope he's alright and coming back soon.

Um, yeah, what's up with that? seems rather bizarre on a professional website benefiting from ad bucks to leave "regular" features untouched and not updated for days on end. If a newspaper columnist goes on vacation, do they just leave their column inches blank?

You volunteering your time, sq?

Incidentally, I notice your last public blog post on your Myspace page was in February of 2007.

The columnist goes on permanent vacation and then the newspaper gets shrunk down to two sections.

um, creepy...

also, with much respect to you of course, if you are trying to draw a parallel between my slacking on my personal MySpace blog and regular features of an interactive website being stagnant, it doesn't really hold water. Blogging on MySpace isn't my job, nor does the revenue from the ads plastered all over MySpace trickle down to me in any way, shape, or form. To answer your question, although I'd actually be happy to pitch in and work for The Daily Page, I wasn't aware the folks around here volunteer their time.

Really? I think I'm pretty well-adjusted. That's why my psychiatrist tells me, anyway, and the voices in my head agree.
