I felt a familiar sensation reading this article, like I was reading something from suck.com (or StO for that matter) circa 1998. Maybe it was the subject matter, but I think it was also the type of writing. Sippey's article isn't much longer than a typical weblog post, but something about it made it different. No one is writing like this online anymore and I was surprised at how much I missed it.

Maybe because it appears to be thought-out rather than wipped-off? By which I mean it feels baked, done, edited, argued, etc. It feels like an essay, not a blog post.

This thread is closed to new comments. Thanks to everyone who responded.
