Quiz Time 13

Yr Host – Aaman Lamba

Answers have been added to Quiz Time 12 – and the winner is Phillip Winn, with 3 points

Just under the wire of 2005, this quiz has a theme – the blogosphere. All the questions are related in some way to the blogosphere and it’s denizens. Are you a question or an answer?

Also, tonight (Jan 1), there is a huge and arbitrary quiz online on a blog hosted by the Karnataka Quiz Association (KQA), the finest Quiz Association in the world, and one of which I have had the honor of being a member, and ranked quizzer, along with my team, “Mustafa and the Fat Bottomed Girls” – the quiz is online from 1500-1800 IST (09:30:00-12:30:00 GMT) – give it a shot, if you like.

Send me your answers by email – aamanlamba at

Prize:Once again, whoever gets the most answers right will get a prize mailed him/her from me. Honor system, so no looking up answers from Elgoog, etc.

The Questions – Stage I

1. What does it mean if you get SLAPPed?

2. What did the following people start: Evan Williams, Paul Bausch, and Meg Hourihan?

3. What immortal phrase did Sam Sugar coin in his article “How to Make Money Podcasting if You’re Not Adam Curry”? (I’ll accept small variants of the term)

4. Name at least two people in this picture. For a bonus point, name all 5.

5. Which podcast was the winner at this year’s Weblog Awards (2005)

6. Which blogging service allows users to add eProps to other users’ blog entries, to encourage comments?

7. Who wrote this blog entry?

Some of our maids sitting up late last night to get things ready against our feast today, Jane called up about three in the morning, to tell us of a great fire they saw in the City. So I rose, and slipped on my night-gown and went to her window, and thought it to be on the back side of Mark Lane at the farthest; but, being unused to such fires as followed, I thought it far enough off, and so went to bed again, and to sleep. . . . By and by Jane comes and tells me that she hears that above 300 houses have been burned down tonight by the fire we saw

8. What is a livemark?

9. What is the Chinese term for blogger?

10. Complete this series: b2\cafelog, Miles, Blakey,Mingus, Strayhorn, ?

    I have a question of my own:

    How greatly would it piss off PW if I said I prefer this layout to the new one?

  • RJ Elliott

    Hello? Bueller? Bueller???

  • Bennett

    Funny! A throwback to some of the olde layout, but the coments don’t seem to stick?

  • Eric Berlin

    Great job Aaman, will dig into this soon!

  • Aaman

    The best quiz of the year is at the Guardian

    I scored 28 out of 50 there

  • Joanie

    You should have my pathetic answers awaiting your laughter in your mailbox.

  • Aaman

    You actually scored 6.5 on 10 – I knew I made it easy:)

  • Aaman

    The KQA quiz is up – and boy is it tough!

  • Aaman

    Not too many people have sent in their answers to this easy quiz yet – EricOlsen should look closely at at least one question;)


  • Matthew T. Sussman

    All I know is what a SLAPP is.

  • Aaman

    Joan Hunt got 6.5 – any more takers?

  • Joanie

    I’m still rather ashamed at my one answer…I missed! I missed! I missed the easiest one of the bunch!

  • Natalie Davis

    I think my score would be a zero. Which is cool, given my thoughts about the blogospheriverse.
