Roundtable Blawging

Ernie Svenson, in the current edition of the LLRX Internet Roundtable: "I have no idea where my blog is heading. I just hope that it doesn't wind up in a place where the SWAT teams have to storm in."

This discussion among blawgers about blawging is a must-read, and notable in particular for its observations about the personal connections blogging enables that otherwise would not be possible. Jerry Lawson, for example, "did a posting about a news aggregator program, and received a response—from the guy who programmed it." This kind of thing happens with such great regularity that it's tempting to start taking it for granted, but that would be a mistake. This is a medium uniquely suited to bridging divides of culture, expertise, and distance, and though like Ernie I have no clue about the ultimate destination, it's good fun to be along for the ride.

By the way, I'll fill in the credit to David Weinberger for coining the term "Google URL," and note (because it's bound to be fleeting!) that for the time being one of mine is "Denise."
