Who writes this ode to Web 2.0? No one has asked, but some may wonder. Here are the contributors in alphabetical order (and in haiku). And their favourite book!

Capt. Walker de Planck
Someone thinks pirates
are really cool; obviously
hasn’t grown up yet.

I had to write a
haiku, this is the result.
Let’s all blame Stephen.

Edna Welthorpe
Thanks to the Teen Blog
Grumpy Edna has increased
her Google hit count.

Grimm likes making lists
about almost anything.
It’s quite sad really.

I am a whale.
I am big.
I feel small.

Library Serf
Poor old Serfy must
write posts about dull subjects –
but someone has to.

Inscrutable, yet
easily scruted when I
am tangled in yarn.

Ms B. Spinach
Aspires to paint a
mural, but so far just makes
tiny paper planes.

Medieval form
of Prudentia. Also
hit with Puritans.

squid and sword enthusiast,
arbiter of style.

Moonlight falls softly
upon a nerd; he sleeps, eats,
but mostly he sleeps.

You don’t win friends with
salad. You don’t win friends with
salad. You don’t win…

I’m a queer trans kid
That’s my whole identity
Lol, classic queer kid.
