Ape vs Mensa: ugliest male bloggers of 2006 (or actually…)

Content Mensa

“I’m an online content Mensa! Who cares if I’m ugly?!”

[ warning: now entering the Overkill Zone ]

Welcome to The Mighty Net where online content drives seamless, democratic access to conversation. Yet footnote, Gizmodo and Amit Agarwal still include aesthetics in this content-driven forum, specifically when it comes to analyzing content of female “babe” bloggers.

Is the driving democratic force behind new media and Node101 abandoning passion for content and embracing … babehood ratings? Are the non-Cali Lewis gals, no matter their quality of conversation — destined for mere Ugly Bettyhood?

The whole babe blogger thing doesn’t really compel a Top 10 Hot Hunks Blogger list, at least from this end of the Net. How about naming the Ugliest Male Bloggers of 2006? Nah, that’s just cruel & still plays the shallow game of focusing on looks vs ideas. Hmm.

How ’bout this:

Smart n Savvy Male Bloggers of the Year (apes? Daniel Craigs? why would we care?)

Randomly cited e.g. not in order of IQ size
Jonny Goldstein (humor genius)
Carl Weaver (Vlog Santa + photographer = awesome)
Sean Stickle (IT, books, ideas…the fearless, unstoppable brain)
Robert Scoble (not to overkill the man’s name but it was nice how he & his wife Maryam made interview time at ConvergeSouth)
Andy Carvin (new media evangelist with a mighty wit)
Andy Coon (Final Cut whiz, podcast conversationalist, filmmaker…can’t be beat)
Jay Cheel (anything documentary with quality analysis…good stuff)
Ed Cone (the man of ideas; reliable honesty)
Billy The Blogging Poet (compelling rhymes 24/7)
Glenn Reynolds (legal mind taking on us all & protecting blogger rights along the way)
Ze Frank (the TED attending blinkless wonder)
-My Dad (…if he vlogged or blogged)

Who would make-up your Smart n Savvy list?

-Still pondering Smart n Savvy females…there are so many!
