Pleasure principle, arguably the Sri Lankan blogosphere’s most popular blog has been deleted by its author Soixante Neuf. Yes old news but high time for a memorial before memory evaporates. Perhaps hope springs eternal. Specially among the sad souls poking Google cache or archive.org
Before its demise, the blog occupied practically all the coveted “most popular this month” spots on kottu.org — the blog aggregator that essentially defines the Sri Lankan blogosphere. Among the many things it stimulated, were discussions rarely seen among Sri Lankans in public.
In line with the global economy, the Sri Lankan blogosphere is now an austere place with pleasure principle’s passing. All things are fleeting. No doubt the austerity to will be fleeting to. Till then its just more war, politics, ad sense and Google earth. VTDN?
So what exactly was the please principle about? The official drummer of the Sri Lankan blogosphere describes the pleasure principle blog and its content in better than I ever could.
