Using Technology to Deepen Democracy, Using Democracy to Ensure Technology Benefits Us All
Friday, May 04, 2012
I've been blogging here since May 2004, so, you know, eight years or so, and I still find it completely strange when more than twice as much attention attaches, say, to this spur-of-the-moment throwaway afterthought post reminding folks of something I've said (better) a bazillion times before than to this more substantive post preceding it that took hours to craft, said some things I haven't said before, and which even provocatively had the word "sex" in the title. Weird. Last month, a post consisting of something like a snapped finger in the aftermath of being annoyed by an episode of a reality show on the tee vee was read hundreds of times more than any of the political commentary or futurological critique penned all month long which is more or less the definitive pre-occupation of the blog. Not complaining, just registering amused perplexity. Blogging is still crazy after all these years.
