Ballad of the Fighting Keyboarders?

Mr. Sun posits what a movie about the world of blogging might be like. I just hope that Leroy Anderson's "The Typewriter", updated to feature a computer keyboard (with maybe the double-clicking of a mouse standing in for the chiming of the carriage-return bell), would be on the soundtrack.

I'd also hope for a scene in which the guy who played Paul Pfeiffer on The Wonder Years is shown banging away at his keyboard in his basement, screaming, "Why can't I get an Instalanche...oh why won't Glenn link me...."

(And no, the guy who played Paul on The Wonder Years is not Marilyn Manson. Cut it out.)

(UPDATE: Hmmm. I wonder what the TRON universe would look like, if adopted to reflect the existence of blogs?)
