Blogging as a Way of Life
To hear some tell it, blogs are the new black in the Age of Information. There’s fair amount of buzz around this relatively novel method of communication, and some predict it’s only a matter of time before a galaxy of independent yet vigilant bloggers overtake the Mainstream Media (or MSM in blog parlance) as the place to get news. This may or may not happen: I read a poll recently that showed about one-third of Americans read blogs on a daily basis, while about a third didn’t know what a blog was (which, to be fair, doesn’t mean they haven’t used them—some people probably don’t know what a browser is, either).
This got me wondering what the blog scene is like at the vanguard of IT, among the most knowledgeable, technically savvy individuals in the populace. In other words, our readers. So I’ll put the question to all of you: Are you guys blogging? What are you writing about? The latest networking technologies? Philip K. Dick or Robert Heinlein novels? New sci-fi-themed diversions like “Lost” and “Serenity”? All of the above? Tell me about it sometime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
