While I love the literary Blawg Reviews, the occasion-themed Blawg Reviews, and the milestone Blawg Reviews, when it comes to themes there can be a fine line between inspired and oppressive (I know whereof I speak on the latter, having written a couple of oppressive examples myself).
This week's Blawg Review #290 at Familoo's Pink Tape blog is a model of simplicity. This is Blawg Review's essence — wonderful links collected and presented in a conversational style and with pertinent but unobtrusive commentary by a wonderful legal blogger. Ah, if only every week could be this way!
Highlights include coverage of the #twitterjoketrial and the #iamspartacus furor which followed, the ironic coincidence of Britain's latest reminder of diminished civil rights and the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, and a rash of politicians tweeting and blogging badly.
Now that Familoo's shown how Blawg Review should be done, who'll step-up to host next week's Blawg Review #291?
