Fake Writer Day

Writing about web page http://www.gawker.com/news/jt-leroy/happy-fake-writer-day-jt-leroy-147365.php

Wow – apparantly it's fake writer day – inaugarated to celebrate the unmasking of a top-selling US author who turns out is not who they appear to be:

successful young author JT Leroy — the former West Virginia truck-stop hooker with a history in the San Francisco drug scene and a solid case of AIDS — didn’t exactly exist. Leroy, the piece maintained, was merely a fabrication of Laura Albert and Geoffery Knoop, the couple who are said to have rescued Leroy from his tragic life and helped him to become a “brilliant” dark writer.

Also a dishonourable mention to James Frey who apparantly conned Oprah and got himself a best seller, film contracts etc – http://www.thesmokinggun.com/jamesfrey/0104061jamesfrey1.html

I can know reveal that this blog is not the work of Tom Abbott, but instead is written by a team of trained monkeys, gentically enhanced to whinge and moan at the slightest opportunity.

Next revelations –
Shards is a front for counter-revolutionary symapthisers
The King of Wales is from Scotland
Hollyzone isn't a zone and there's no Holly
Casey's blog is ghost written by Himself

Blog comments from Google

Writing about web page http://www.google.com/tools/firefox/webcomments/index.html

Interesting Firefox extension from Google that adds a popup window displaying blogger comments about any page you are looking at.

Not sure if it is actually useful as yet, but seems fun.
