Well, that's the way they spelled it. Maybe they're drunk. Or maybe -- gosh -- they're just that impressed by the blogosphere. Anyway, they're calling it "The Plank," as in walk the plank. They're pirates! That's a good self-image for the guys -- they're all guys -- at the nerdy little magazine (which I subscribe to). The formatting -- except for the extra banner on the top -- is especially nice. They do need to work on those typos! No blogroll. But I'm putting them on my blogroll and hope they work up some nice atmosphere, momentum, and interaction -- which is what makes The Corner so great. So far, it seems a bit stiff.
UPDATE: Stiff? What do you expect from a plank? Is the prose a little wooden? A little flat? I'm sure they worked through all the permutations, all the insults that might ensue, before they thought we're pirates and ran with it.
