She’d never start blogging, she told me a few months ago. Now she has: Geniwate or Jenny Weight blogs with deep scepticism of honesty:

As if I’m going to treat my blog as a dear , when you, of all people, can read it. No, I’m going to construct a persona that will reside here; I’m going to make assumptions about my narratee (regardless of whether you actually exist) and thus I have turned the blog environment into a space for fiction; at best, ficto-critical writing. (April 6)

Jenny’s blog is called I must be lonely, she declares that she used to think bloggers were “self-indulgent wankers”, she lives in Melbourne and is a writer. Uh oh, perhaps that was too much honesty?

They find that the Chinese machine vision imaginary is global, blue and competitive.  […]
