the evenings out here - Thoughts, rants and musings about absolutely everything except photography. Or cats.

Echoes and static

in General , Wednesday, May 18, 2005

Just a quick one - here is a comment on blogging which is well worth reading. Bob Baxley seems to share the impression that I get, even of the more "serious" of weblogs, that the signal to noise ratio is very low. Blogging seems to encourage an urge to write at all costs, even if you have nothing to say. The content becomes the content. The medium is indeed the message and the message is mostly echoes and static. And that is my soundbite ping for today.
