It’s my understanding that drug users sometimes have flashbacks that cause them to hallucinate and do unexplainable, unimaginable things. So when a friend told me to go see the new Technorati website and it finished loading, the first thing that came to mind was that drug users with a Jolly Rancher fetish are now in control of the bus.
Technorati is a blog discussion search/indexing engine, or that’s what I had been made to believe. This new magically-delicious site would have me believe it’s the next social app of the future…future…future…future. I kept looking for a way to “Digg” blogs and blog posts but found nothing. I’m guessing that by the time the redesign project got to that phase it was time for the munchies. I could be way off here and this is merely an homage to early Web 2.0 design circa early 2005 — an inside-joke or way to get free publicity with headlines like: “What hath Technorati become?” or “MyYahoorati?”.
A bit harsh, but very funny.
