Web Pages that Suck says my site doesn't suck

From Vincent Flanders’ Web Pages that Suck:

I just got through reading that Bill Gates wants to start a blog. Why would anyone in their right mind want to read it? Do you think it will contain Heroin Content? As Seth Godin points out, blogs only work when they meet four of the following five conditions:

  1. Candor
  2. Urgency
  3. Timeliness
  4. Pithiness
  5. Controversy

Check out Bill’s speeches. Unless he’s chatting with a comedian, there’s no Heroin Content. If his blog were like this one from a Microsoft employee who worked with Bill at the CES trade show, it might be interesting.

Thanks Vincent. I think… 🙂 He may pull me for my page not being up (it’s uploading now).
