If you have not read it yet, here is the offending article: http://www.wired.com/entertainment/theweb/magazine/16-11/st_essay
I say offending because actually the article seems dated in itself. So now apparently the clever people tweet and facebook their way in the world.
Facebook has been around for eons now in the ‘Web 2.0’ world, and it’s great – for some stuff. So has twitter – relatively (although I have a well-documented difficult relationship with twitter and how it integrates into my own space).
Blogging now is deemed too ‘2004’
Blogging won’t go away, in the same way that TV did not replace radio.
Blogging enables all of us to read the thoughts of those we may not be lucky enough to meet. And enables free sharing of ideas.
If egos and the need to be bleeding edge prevents people/you blogging their/your thoughts, then shame on them/you.
Please keep posting, blogging and sharing and try not to be too influenced by what is deemed *cool*
