Coming Up For Air During Carnival

tubaIt’s Carnival Season here in New Orleans (Mardi Gras is the name for Fat Tuesday itself, Carnival is the season) so posting will be getting  erratic. I know, I know, just when I’ve been getting things rolling again. Sorry. The next few months will show everyone why I’ve been so busy.

In the meantime here is an interesting tidbit I do not have time to write about in detail, but is well worth looking into. As always I would love you comments!

Seems like Read Write Web and Wikipedia are getting into it. RWW recently found out that they are blacklisted on Wikipedia. Seems that a “blog” is not a reliable enough being a “self published source”. Hmmm….. What makes it even more interesting is that other high profile blogs are not. Certainly an interesting situation, and one that Internet based self publishers should watch as it evolves.

Via Read Write Web:

It’s also deeply ironic that Wikipedia – a poster child of the Web 2.0 revolution, the read/write user participation Web – fails to recognize the validity of “self-published” media. Wikipedia is by its own definition a “self-published” work, created and edited by thousands of amateur volunteers.

Curiouser and curiouser said Alice…

I may be pressed for time but I am bringing back the tradtion of a recipe or cocktail recipe with each post. This time I’d like to share and interesting technique that was presented here in the crescent City forthe  Tales of the Cocktail event we have every July –  How Baconify Your Bourbon. Peculiar? Yes! Smoky and delicious? Yes? Do you believe me? Probably not. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
