Anto: What do you think of danah boyd? Don’t you think she’s supercool?
nella: [continuing to read Scoble’s post about investing in blogging] Yeah, she is OK.
Anto: OK? Just OK? Have you read her post on superpublics?
nella: [click-hopping to Jeneane Sessum’s post on the history of “small is the new big”] Yes, I did. It’s interesting.
Anto: She has all these great ideas on social networks online.
nella: [Now reading Hugh McLeod] She’s writing her dissertation on social networks; it would be surprising if she didn’t have interesting things to say.
Anto: My dissertation was not that interesting.
nella: [scanning Shelly’s posts on The bbgun] Here we go again.
Anto: No, really.

Anto: Stop it!

Silence. Click. Click. Click.
Anto: OK, but she has more interesting things to say that many A-listers.
nella: [reading BoingBoing making fun of the Wall Street Journal] I would agree with that.
Silence, except for furious typing.
Anto: Are you angry at me?
nella: No, I’m not.
Anto: Are we OK then?
nella: We are golden.
Silence. Typing. More typing. Silence.
Anto: I love you.
nella: I love you, too. Now shut up. Trying to be a serious blogger here.
