AOLEntertainment: You’ve got blogs(not)

What has 23 live links to gossip and entertainment blogs, no comments, no timestamps and no dynamic updating? If you live and work in Dulles or the NYC AOL bubble, it’s AOL’s Hollywood Blogzone, the clear product of some editor’s desire to obey their boss’s directives to ” Be cool” and “Link out.”
A retreat of the old “Gossip” main page with a nod to bloggerati, HBZ feels so tired and old–it’s a great example of how wanna-bes can mangle what’s supposed to be a fresh,dynamic and interactive form–even with the current passion for gossip online, there is no way anyone who know how to click on a link would ever be compelled by this tired little puppy.
Susan sez: Fellas, you you bought Weblogs Inc–how about you get some counseling on this Web 2.0 thing?
Update: Yes, I am feeling a little mean this am…coffee hasn’t kicked in yet.
