Like much of the Internet, we were captivated by Alex Pareene's "Hack 30" countdown, both because we like lists (obviously) and because it was a very slow news days. Twitter (for the most part) concurred:
Ana Marie Cox and Chris Lehmann saw their prediction go up in smoke...
Current guess for #1 from the Lehmann-Cox car: Krauthammer. #hack30
NYU's Jay Rosen and liberal blogger Duncan "atrios" Black looked into the future...
I have no inside information, but I am certainly rooting for Richard Cohen to be No. 1, @amdreier.
#1 has gotta be richard cohen
@delrayser was pleased to see things play out exactly as anticipated
Even Salon's Glenn Greenwald couldn't find fault with the top choice
John Podheretz, upset over not making the list, found comfort in tweeting on his shiny iPad...
I'm bereft that I didn't make Salon's hack list. I mean, to be ignored by Alex Pareene--it hurts. Actually, not so much. Alex who?
