We’re celebrating having won a revolution this weekend.
Blogging is a revolution in communication.
Sometimes (and this scares me) I have to remind myself that I have a real life with real friends in a real world. Not that the friends I have made aren’t real. I just haven’t met them yet. Trine and I have been having an ongoing conversation about this subject; and I wondered onto Annush’s site. She was talking about feeling like a voyaeur sometimes and I knew exactly what she meant.
We might all be remembered as being in the vanguard of a movement that’s bigger than any I can think of since the invention of the printing press. That’s my bias; I like words better than images. I go for good writing in TV, films and plays; great acting helps much, so does music. then there’s animation, old school and anime, great graphics–I love poster art, and things I can’t yet conceive of.
Blogging can combine all components. I love the thought of reading a book in print, plugging it into my computer and have links of all types come up. Think I’m being silly? Narcissitic? (Seer into the future is the correct answer)
I would love to know what you think about blogging; where you see it going; and maybe what it and publishing will be like in the future. Complete essays only. Whatever. I’m just interested in your thoughts.
For something really scary, watch the video included in Trine’s comment. Warning: don’t watch it before going to sleep. The video is scary; Trine’s comment is great!
Will be keeping this post first up for comments as I find them fascinating, and worthy of much exploration.
