|Not blogging, hacking - but a great photo|
I'm discussing the pros and cons of blogging, particularly for writers. A sample:
[B]logging combines the illusion of completeness with editorial freedom and instantaneity. In this, it's a chance for us to be hoist with our own petard.
None of this is a problem for disciplined, careful, sympathetic bloggers - the technology won't force them to be otherwise. It might not be neutral, but it certainly isn't villainous. On the contrary: the blog is an exciting, valuable medium. It expands the franchise of mass writing - the trick is to make this new liberty count.(Photo: Brandon Harris at the Berlin Hackathon, by Guillaume Paumier)
