Blog Fail

Image source

Blogs can be dismissed just as quickly. In many ways, blogs are like candy; here today, forgotten tomorrow. Blogs are disposable, they’re "impulse purchases" and flings as opposed to long-term commitments.

Maybe there should be bigger barriers to entry to avoid the building up of digital dust. Perhaps people should take a blog test to weed out the un-serious. Maybe blogs should have a three-month trial period that would cause them to evaporate if there were long periods of inactivity. That way, the blogosphere wouldn’t have so much litter. (Source)

Tufts Fail

YouTube Preview Image

A couple of weeks ago we had Entrepreneur Fail, so to get going this new feature ‘fail’ we’re writing about the school Tufts University located outside of Boston- they canceled their naked quad run after years of tradition and exploits. Sources say the police were "uncomfortable" about the event.

Fair compromise: drunk Tufts kids can run drunk and naked through the quad while cops compete to see who can hit the most students with a Taser. Everyone wins.

Yiying Lu Makes Splash with Twitter’s ‘Fail Whale’

Yiying Lu’s most famous illustration thus far is linked with failure - and that has turned out to be a good thing.

The young artist is the bubbly brainchild behind Twitter’s "fail whale," the image that appears when Twitter is overloaded and can’t function. In the picture, a flock of birds carry an enormous, smiling whale over the water.

Through Twitter, the whale has become a sign of the times. This year, the popular San Francisco microblogging service sent an astonishing 25 billion messages of 140 characters or fewer and added 100 million new users.

Though the fail whale doesn’t appear as frequently as it once did on Twitter, it lives on. It has inspired a fan club, two parties and at least one tattoo. Last month, for the premiere of his new show,�Conan O’Brien commissioned Lu to create the "pale whale," which depicts the comedian riding on top of a whale as it is being carried by birds.

Food Revolution Fail

You’ve never seen a school lunch like this one, made with hydroponic vegetables and free-range chicken by a brash British superchef. Not that the elementary schoolchildren care. Most sing-song "Pizza!" when given a choice between the gourmet grub and the reheated factory-made frozen pizza. At the end of the lunch period, a mound of chicken sits untouched, and even more is dumped into the trash after a few wary nibbles.

That much we do know from watching Jamie Oliver’s "Food Revolution" reality TV series now airing on ABC. But we’re not supposed to know that Jamie is substituting high-end foodstuffs that normally grace three-star restaurants for the cheap, institutional fare dished out in public schools like West Virginia’s Central City Elementary School, the setting for the first two episodes.

At the end of one episode, we hear�Rhonda McCoy, director of food services for the local county, tell Jamie that he’s over budget and did not meet the fat content and calorie guidelines, but she’s going to let him continue with the "revolution" as long as he addresses these issues. What is not revealed is that the "meal cost at Central City Elementary during television production more than doubled with ABC Productions paying the excess expense," according to a�document obtained by AlterNet from the West Virginia Department of Education.
