Agree or Disagree?
"Is blogging self-expression, personal publishing, amateur journalism, the biggest disruptive technology since email, an online community, alternative media, curriculum for students, a customer relations strategy, knowledge management, navel gazing, a solution to boredom, a style of writing, e-mail to everyone, a fad, the answer to illiteracy, an online persona, social networking, rêsumê fodder, phonecam pictures, or something to hide from your mother? It’s all of these and more."
In all of my zeal to track the genealogy of blogging, it seems that I skipped over the step of first defining what is a blog (or, perhaps, the need for definition only arises after reading so many parallel yet divergent creation myths). So, I thought I would ask you. Again.
What is that which we call a blog? A blog by any other name, would it be as sweet to read?
(...And, yes, I am in the midst of a thesis writing frenzy. Deadlines inspire...panic inspires...writing achieves...thesis required for...graduation yields...unemployment - another story entirely!)
