Nightly Kos

I read Daily Kos occasionally, and I find it a nice way to keep up with what an important subset of the activist base is thinking. This has a little to do with why I'm looking forward to seeing more of Markos Moulitsas' new netroots porn site, aptly named 'Nightly Kos'. (The top post is a bit too NSFW to link, or I would).

A lot of the best features of the site are naturally drawn from its predecessor. For example, it allows users to post their own amateur porn diaries so that the whole community can recommend the best ones. It's the sort of thing that will be especially neat because of the demographics of the Democratic base. Given that our party has more women than men and a fairly large homosexual population, it'll be quite interesting to see what makes it to the top of the Recommended List. We'll probably get lots of interesting stuff that hasn't been the subject of such great attention in the mainstream porn media.

Early indications are that other big blog conglomerates are thinking about how to get in on the hot pr0n action. Of course, this is nothing new for Pandagon, which was posting pics of handsome half-naked men for the ladies to enjoy three years ago. (I really enjoyed seeing the positive responses from women in the comments.) The new BoinkProgress site looks awesome. Josh Marshall hasn't said anything about this issue yet, but I don't think FuckingPointsMemo is too far away. Jane Hamsher hasn't unveiled her new site yet, and I'm actually a little scared about it, as it'll probably be way more extreme than anybody else's.

Anyway, it looks like it's going to be an impressive site. I'd love to put up pics of myself if only my job wasn't an issue. But you might see me linking it in the days to come.

This is all about pissing off Nick, isn't it?

No, it's all cool, though I always think he has more good stuff to say than he's posting.
