Dave Winer, just said, in Scripting News: “don’t think of this as a conversational medium, and don’t count on everyone hearing you. Use it for thinking out loud, and be happy when people hear you, but don’t expect it.”
Is that blogging, or textcasting? Or the digital realm as a whole? I’ve had some good conversation in simple closed email groups.
But what I appreciate about Dave’s line is that blogging is thinking out loud, I’ve been doing that in my blog for more than 30 years. I’m taking his words as an affirmation that it is worth doing. Thinking out loud, alone.
I should turn off comments as they have done little – but I appreciate that people sub to this blog. Not quite alone.
