Begun in the summer of 2007 on the WordPress platform, hvs became my final blog. I was cross-posting to the Democratic Daily, and, later to the Moderate Voice. This made my old blogger platforms completely useless for cross-posting, since their machine language was so significantly different that I had to rewrite every blog post I reposted. This proved providential, since cross-blogging required mererly copying the html marked up text and repasting, with a backlink for Memeorandum purposes*.

Boregasm was created to take advantage of the Blogger platform’s upgrade to logging individual blog postings. Prior to this, Blogger archived a week at a time, making the “permalink” url useless. I don’t know why they bothered, since clicking on it only took you to the blog week, making cross-referencing posts a nightmare.Boregasm famously “outed” the Howie Rich gang and their Koch and CATO links. Howie Rich alum Eric O’Keefe is in the news for slushing money to Scott Walker in Wisconsin & named me as all but stalking him in his lawsuit against Wisconsin prosecutors. NPR interview HERE.
was created to store transcripts and other text that might vanish in the endless churn of mass media. Not being paid to do it, it was taking up too much time. I also blog at: The Moderate VoiceandThe Democratic Daily- since 2007
