First is the “blogging”…which we could, and should, recognize as any means of mass communication linked to the newer technology.

Seems unhealthy. Viewed up close, it is. All that time burned away by someone? And all it does is start fights, no minds get changed. I agree with all that. But it’s a lesson in what’s called “seeing the forest for the trees”; you have to take a few steps back, think long term. Blogging is the healthy part, because now our trans-society discourse is capable of some level of dialogue. Of rebuttal, and counter-rebuttal. Pre-blogging — oh, let’s just be honest about this, can we for just a moment or two? — that was not the case. Uncle Walter told us “And that’s the way it is,” and that’s the way it was…House of Eratosthenes

Your Say

As one wag once put it, "Freedom of the press is generally restricted to those who own one." I love that the Internet has done away with that barrier.

I stopped both of my blogs (wood working, and architectural design) only a few months after starting them 5 years ago.

The fake narcissism was more than I could bear.
