I used to have to do all my bragging for myself. Now I've got other people doing it for me. Must mean my plan for world domination is working. The following was posted by William Slawski at the blog called out in the title slug, above.
ad hominem

Sometimes I can't help myself but think that Chris Locke is a piece of work. I mean, he speaks his mind regardless of what's on it, or how people will perceive him. He often exhibits a great capacity for compassion, and love, and even lust on his pages over at Rageboy.

Of course, some of that is jealousy on my part, and I'm not afraid to admit it. Consider the best selling and critically acclaimed books he has written or co-authored, as well as a manifesto that many would be proud to have a hand in. I'm not there, and I may never be there. Admiration? I don't know if you can call it that. Respect? Probably.

I took one of those online personality tests that seemed to be all of the web not more than a few months ago. It determined "which blogger you are." My result was "Chris Locke." Chris who? I found out, and was humbled.

Maybe we share a few traits when it comes to temperment, but talent? Mr. Locke has a way with words and images that is at many times amazing. For instance, on his new venture over at Corante called Ad Hominem: the sociology of IQ, Chris Locke writes:

What we are seeing today on the web -- discounting the plethora of corporate spew -- is the emergence of ourselves as human beings discovering what it means to be human. If you're not doing that, do it. Spook yourself. If you're already spooked, don't quit now. We've only begun to scratch the surface. Why is the net getting so much pushback from the top-down hierarchies of power that freak if they can't control everything. Because it's working, that's why. We're giving ourselves permission to be outlaws.
I've been hesitant to do that here. Not a good thing for someone who calls his blog Bragadocchio. Maybe if I work at it hard enough, I can be a piece of work, too. And I mean that in a good way. Sort of like Chris Locke.

Chris Locke's photos More of Chris Locke's photos

Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of. I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos." It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.
