The Inside Dope's global influence
I noticed this many months ago, (June of '05) but just came across it again and I still get a kick out of it.
A female blogger in Moscow, Russia (not Iowa) includes a link to The Inside Dope.
Not only does the blog link here, it's the ONLY link on the entire blog.
Those of you who enjoy reading Russian will love The Russian Bird. You can see the link to her post entitled "The Inside Dope" in the list to the left.
I recall that at the time I discovered the post, I ran it through an on-line translation service, but I don't recall what the post says. Something about what an idiot I am if I remember correctly.
Note: I just ran the post through Babblefish and this was the result:
I cannot be dismantled with the system of the retention of the authors at local bloge necessary to you. I attempt now to avos'..nu, they wentWell, it makes as much sense as some comments I get.
And from another online translation service, we have:
I can not understand with system of preservation of the authors necessary to you in local блоге. [blogs] I try now at random.. Well, have gone.That's a little more coherent. I take it to mean that she couldn't figure out how to link to other blogs and tried to link to one at random (which happened to be The Inside Dope) But who knows? Any Russian readers out there?
And another amazing site to do with blogging is Blogshares. It's an incredibly complex site which operates as an elaborate market where blogs are the comodities for which people buy and sell stock. Frankly, it's over my head, but it's kind of interesting.
Here's the page for The Inside Dope.
Shares stand at $2.50 with a P/E ratio of .92 They say the stock is undervalued and is a buy recommendation.
