No Legitimacy

Journalist, author and accessibility pundit, Joe Clark, presents an interesting article, suggesting that web logs should qualify for an ISSN. Thinks me, “this is great – legitimacy for Smiffy’s Place”.

Sadly, this is not to be; quoth the issuer of ISSNs in Australia:

Thank you for your ISSN application. We do not assign ISSNs to the following online resources: personal or organisational homepages, advertising sites, weblogs and/or diaries.

Oh well, illegitimacy never held William the Conqueror back.
