It has this weird, self-referential quality that I can only describe as depressingly postmodern. Why blog about knitting, cats, Gaza or British politics when you can write about the act of blogging? You can even twitter about twittering. Or blog from your iPhone about how you're blogging... from your iPhone.

Maybe I'm a vicious ex-scientist bitch who caustically flays the living flesh from innocents, but I just keep thinking: Further reading - Nathan Barley.

Charlie Brooker is a genius.
