Opus 1000: The 20 Greatest Herald Stories?

by Alphaville Herald on 30/10/05 at 6:00 pm

I meant to post a top 10 list at the time of our 2nd Birthday, but it seems that post 1000 gives an excuse that is just as good. I found it impossible to narrow the list to 10, even getting down to 20 was difficult. I’d be interested in what others think should be on the top 20 list – going back to the days of Alphaville. A lot of early posts make my list, but this is in part due to their historical importance and in part due to nostalgia. What I’m saying is that these are my choices at the moment, YMMV. –Uri

    Wow, that’s 1.36 stories a day for 2 years, an incredible output for the blog world. Congrats! Well, even though I’m over-represented in that list, I’d have to say that my Selena Witch hoax really should go in any top 25 list. Also, the “Linden Phuck GOM” ought to be up there because you were the first to react and tell that particular story the way it needed to be told. Also I’m thinking Neal Stewart’s story on free speech issues and some other Neal stories are missing. Geez, it’s hard to pick. Really, you ought to have a links page by these topics you’ve bothered to tag everything with, and have them all up there in a grand archive.

  3. Post 501 is the followup to the very first article I read on the SL Herald, which was 457. I was still awestruck by flying at the time, and the piccie of BigJohn Jade was particularly iconic. I then went to Club Elite. :)

    Oops you DO have a links page already by topic head DER, it’s in the column over on the lower right called Categories — well it takes a lot of scrolling, so a more concise page with just headlines linked might work.
