For those of you who read Warren Ellis’ excellent blog, you may be aware that today is meant to be the fifth Annual Rabbit Hole Day, in celebration of the birthday of Lewis Carroll.
However, we are not doing that.Â Not as such.Â Instead, we have decided to launch our revamped blog.Â Myself and Cramulus threw some ideas around while drunk a few weeks back, and this was essentially the result.Â We want Verwirrung to be more than just a blog for the Principia Discordia community.Â We want the blog to be a place where we can network, link, confer and argue with people, as part of our drive to improve and understand the crazy world around us.
So, first off, our blogging is going to increase.Â By a lot.Â Secondly, our writers are each going to concentrate on a particular sphere of interest, in addition to using the blog to write about whatever they feel.Â So, for example, we will have writers here concentrating on the Law of Fives and how the brain works, on the art of pranking and operation mindfuck, some idiot dealing with politics and warfare, a guy investigating online subcultures, someone keeping a close eye on the world of religion, someone who can help you prepare for any situation, a guy interested in how maps do not correspond to reality, a biology expert and much, much more.
Secondly, we want our blog to be more of a community.Â We want to break into the blogosphere, have people reading us and agreeing or disagreeing, but in short to have a lot more in the way of connectivity with the rest of the world.
Our focus is going to be on the near future, in all our fields.Â What will happen 20 minutes in the future.Â We want to equip you with knowledge you will find useful, and hopefully you can equip us in return.Â I don’t need to tell anyone here that rough times have started, and this is probably the first recession of the internet age.Â Lets see what we can do with this incredible tool, while the power is still on.
And most of all, we want to have a good time.Â I’ll let each of the writers introduce themselves individually.Â Bye for now.
