Day 1: Make a post no one will read, grace your cover photo with a Mass Effect 2 image, and wonder why these fucking hipsters are handing over their network to us dull, drooling masses. As this site grows, will it dismantle the pretentious vibe that sites like Tumblr once had, or will people simply be "assimilated" into this collective twee cube? Will anybody even give a damn about this in a week?
Perhaps I'm simply down for whatever gets me off of Netflix and writing and actively thinking. I may not be as trendy as Clive Martin, as pop as Chuck Klosterman, or as insightful as Jaron Lanier--just a curious guy observing and analyzing the social web. For that curiosity I give ello my appreciation. It's astonishing what you can do with the right combination of pure boredom and lack of sleep. Welcome to ello, earthlings. Time to pretend to be artists and out-nonsense each other.
