Notable Quote: Learning from Blogging

Blogging, the first form of social media to be widely adopted beyond the world of technology enthusiasts, gave us a templates for all the other forms that would follow. Through its lens, people could see the Web for the first time as something they were collectively building. It gave a multitude of formerly private people a public voice. It handed them a blank page and said: Learn. Learn what happens when you take strangers into your confidence. Learn what happens when you betray a confidence. See how it works when you find a lover online. See what happened when you tell the world that you've broken up. Find a job with your blog. Get fired from your job because of something you wrote on your blog. Expose media misinformation. Spread some misinformation of your own.
...Then take everything that you've learned and post it.

~ Scott Rosenberg, Say Everything

Jan's note: I'm approaching 200 posts (this one is officially #199 :) and so it seems appropriately serendipitous that I stumbled on this wonderful book about the history of blogging. I highly recommend it! And for my 200th post, I will be looking back over this blog and highlighting some of my best posts - so stay tuned!
