It's April First And AOL Is Buying The Blogs
from the hmm... dept
Well, just like every year on April First there will be a rash of silly or pointless fake news stories going around. In years past there have occasionally been announcements of a pet store dot com financing that I couldn’t be quite sure if it was an April Fool’s joke or not… I usually try to avoid posting such stories because, well, why encourage this sort of stuff? However, the Register’s story about AOL buying up most of the world’s blogs is worth reading for a good Monday morning laugh. Update: Amusingly, the Register themselves are struggling with whether or not a certain story is an April Fool’s joke. It’s good to see a media organization (even was as… informal as the Register) admit that they’re not quite sure if something is real or not.
