Fortress Blogland

Partial answer to how the INS views blogs, via Wonkette:

'You can't make a living from blogging. Stop lying and tell me why you're really here.'

We'll have to assume the answer to our last question, as to whether an I-Visa might be forthcoming, is "get lost, you Monster Munch-stuffed unwashed mass."

How did Google bypass the Wall Street financial types ? They let the public set the price. Do you have any info on how they did that?

Short answer is they didn't. They used several investmment banks, and large institutions (pension funds, etc) still took huge chunks. But you're right, they did use a Dutch auction to set the price, and if we remember were pressured to provide a bit more comfort to large buyers. But we could be wrong. We heartily recommend a treatment by the mighty Fellix Salmon at He doesn't have much more knowledge than us, but he is sharper.
