Has the cook-through blog jumped the shark?

Julie Powell started it all when she launched the Julie/Julia Project, in which she set out to cook all 500-plus recipes in MtAoFC over the course of the year and blog about it.

Julie's blog begat a book which begat a movie, which has now begat (begotten?) what has to be the most meta web phenomenon...The Lawrence/Julie & Julia Project.

For reasons unknown, a Northwestern University student named Lawrence Dai, has resolved to watch Julie & Julia every day for a year and to chronicle his quest on a blog.

Bon Appetit, dude.
