  1. Xanga is Greenwich Village

    For those who insist that they have the right to blog without having to pay anything:

    1. No one is stopping you from setting up your own web server on which to install your blog site, and from connecting that server to the internet.

    2. There are many no-charge blogging services out there – Blogspot, WordPress, Tumblr, among others. Or just create a Yahoo! group and set the message archives so that people can read them without having to sign in.

    3. If you’re posting from home, chances are that you’re paying some internet service provider to get on the internet in the first place. If you’re posting from an “internet cafe,” chances are that they insist you buy a cup of their coffee before giving you the password to log on to their wi-fi system.

    With that in mind, it’s a good bet that the Xanga Team could cut costs on their end by moving the offices and servers off of Manhattan, which is some of the most expensive real estate on the planet.

    I find that what constitutes “trollness” is often in the eye and mind of the reader.

    Someone who is a troll for one person is a trusted friend or astute commentator for another.

    I ponied up my ∅48. I figure that I’ll give it a year. If it goes belly-up or Xanga 2.0 sucks, I’ll stick to my already existing WordPress blog.
