Diane Greco shows how easy it is to write hypertext criticism these days:

  1. Bash George P. Landow
  2. Bash Eastgate
  3. Blow your horn; don't bother to read or understand writers who don't buy you drinks
  4. Drop names

Greco's furious. It's about time someone got angry. It's about time we all got angry.

I've been quiet about this for the last year or two, expecting that talent (and there's plenty of talent in this field) would drive out or educate the foolishness. Instead, the foolishness and thuggery are driving out the talent. Enough: let's clean these stables.
