On Blogs, August 2002
I've been blogging for over three years now, and I'm getting a little tired of the medium.
Which is ironic given the sudden boom in popularity. Or maybe it's because of the sudden boom in popularity. For my noise to become a station isn't that appealing to me. I'd liked being in the minority, an alternative journalist.
I'm a little self-conscious about ditching my readers, and about losing my little reputation in the community. but, whatever. It feels like the field of information architecture has reached a plateau and now we're all just a bunch of ADD-inflicted bloggers calling out "look at this", "over here, look at this", "check this out over here"...is this progress? Yes, but it's a bachelor's degree, a cornucopia of topics and issues. Now, it's August 2002 and I think we're ready for some master's degrees. There's a rigor in good old fashion research that is missing in the rapid-postings of the blog afflicted.
Is this just the conversation happening during research? The salon without geographical restriction?
Jeez, now I'm blogging about blogging. Someone shoot me.
