Don't Try and Tell Me Penny Arcade Ain't A-List

Penny Arcade's Tycho posts about a blogger who took the bold step of adopting the "beg for change so I can do this fulltime" business plan. In this case, Tycho nails the self-importance of the blogosphere pretty well as webcomic creators are for the most part further along in business experimentation then other micro-publishing fields (this may have a lot to do with the lack of opportunity in "macro-publishing" in the comics field, but I digress...).
Also in regards to T Campbell's last "History of Webcomics" installment, I believe Tycho (and Gabe had mentioned it to me earlier) is right in that although Something Positive gets a lot of credit for doing one of the first successful pledge drives, Penny Arcade did it first.
