World Cup

By William Bakker | 07.09.06 | Comment?

Well, the Fifa World Cup is over. The Dutch should have won but got robbed by the Portuguese diving team.

Some user-generated-content factoids. The best blog was by far the Guardian Life Match Blogs, featuring match commentary mixed with bone-dry English humour and reader emails. I managed to satisfy my craving for meaningless online exposure by having one of my comments I sent to the blogger mentioned during the final (69th minute).

The most dramatic moment of the game was when Zinedine Zidane was sent off with a red card. So I went to his Wikipedia entry moments after the game to find out how long it would take before his article would be updated. When I got there, the article was already updated. The power of User Generated Content.
