The breadth of the blogosphere

You know what’s great about blogging? The fact that anyone (and everyone) can do it.

So I shouldn’t be surprised that two such disparate and different individuals now have blogs, Tim Berners-Lee and Jackson Publick.

Tim is the inventor of the world wide web (WWW) and the first web browser. Jackson is the creative genius (and head writer) of [adult swim]’s The Venture Brothers.

Very cool people with very cool jobs. Here’s a random sampling of their recent blogging:


In 1989 one of the main objectives of the WWW was to be a space for sharing information. It seemed evident that it should be a space in which anyone could be creative, to which anyone could contribute. The first browser was actually a browser/editor, which allowed one to edit any page, and save it back to the web if one had access rights.


Our good pal/honorary Astrobase member (rank: Cadet, 2nd class) Ben “The Tick” Edlund turned in the first ever non-Publick/Hammer Venture Bros. script this week and it’s great. Dark, funny and weird, it features guest appearances (both real and imagined) by Orpheus, The Monarch, some new characters we created for this season, and a warped send up of a classic group. He even managed to squeeze in a small glimpse of some of our protagonists’ previously untold backstories. Should be a good one that fits right into our little (but steadily growing) world.

Happy blogging!
