I m=
ust say that I was never angry. My private sense of humor is not as
facund =
as it pretends to be. The intent was not to strike out personally at
any on=
e person as much as I was commenting on an idea (the idea of what
Rocketboo=
m says it is and what it really is) that I perceived as having
blown by wit=
h little scrutiny. So I applied my own theatrical turd and
dropped it on th=
e list. It seems to have provided a significant amount of
response. I don't=
think Rocketboom would have received so much undeserved
attention without =
it. Admittedly a bit harsh for this list, I only meant to
incite a grander =
response though I've not seen that yet. I can appreciate
the efforts of the=
Rocketboom project but what I still see is something
banal (art school cli=
ch=E9 meaning boring, ordinary, not original). Like you
said, its "a show o=
n the internet", and that's all. This is not to say that
it could evolve an=
d become otherwise. TV for the net. As far as labeling I
would respond by s=
aying give me a concrete semantic to identify it with so
that we can have a=
common language to articulate this subject. Not that big
of a deal. Back t=

Oh yes. I've created my own alternative approach example for=
