I’m famous for 1/15th of a second among people famous for 15 people

So I’m going through my RSS reader, checking up on the various blogs I monitor, and I’m reading the latest entry at Lord Whimsy’s site (I heartily recommend his book, by the way: amusing, urbane, thoughtful, and even incisive at times) on the phenomenon of “microcelebrity,” a term Whimsy relates to Momus’s remix of the famous Warholian aphorism: “In the future, everyone will be famous for fifteen people.” In this context, it was highly amusing to find Whimsy quoting…me – from a comment I’d made at (I think) Momus’s website.
