For those of you who haven't been keeping up with the orgy of self-congratulation that is OSM™, let me quickly highlight this section from their pressrelease yesterday :

Open Source Media currently features content from more than 70 bloggers worldwide, primarily focused on political and current events. However, the goal is to expand its scope to eventually include all forms of coverage, from local news to pop culture to sports, fashion, food, hobbies and more.

Along with this bit from the National Review's puff piece earlier this week :

Bloggers don't work nine-to-five; they post around-the-clock. They don't file one story a day; they might update dozens of times throughout a 24-hour period. And they are everywhere. The New York Times has 53 bureaus worldwide (16 of them in the New York area). Pajamas Media plans to easily top that number, and at a fraction of the cost.

Wow. With $3.5 million in funding, more than 70 contributors, and a 24/7 posting schedule, I'm sure the guys in pajamas are blogging up a storm, right? Well, only if you consider five posts a storm. By comparison, The Huffington Post had 65 posts in its first day.
I guess it must be hard to pat yourself on the back and type at the same time.
