Corporate raider Carl Icahn's anticipated blog is now live and open to the public. Several months after Icahn announced he'd join the blogosphere in February, his lawyers appear to have relented and allowed him to post.

The blog was launched with several backdated entries, including a curious first post thanking readers for their comments -- sans comments -- that reads like sort of a mailbag post that cites supposed supportive emailers.

Other posts are more vintage Icahn, railing against the "Absurdity of Corporate Board Elections" and "Absurdity of the Staggered Board." In fact, it appears as though "Absurdities" will be a frequently-blogged topic.

Silicon Alley Insider takes a jab at the blog's content:

Posts we haven't found yet:

* "What Went Wrong At BioGen"
* "What Went Wrong At Yahoo"
* "What Went Wrong At Time Warner"
* "Man Oh Man, Do I Hope Motorola and Blockbuster Pan Out"
