Nice try

Everyone who blogs should read Paul Graham’s The Age of the Essay.

And while you’re at it, download (or buy) a copy of We The Media.

Don’t forget, folks: those newspapers and magazines that you see in check-out lines and coffee tables throughout the country are obsolete. They’re the automatically-generated output of an industry that hasn’t realized that it’s obsolete. We are all authors, reporters and publishers now.

    Sure. Why not? Publishing a web log is cheap and easy, and everything on the Internet instantly has a potential audience of billions of people. And everyone’s got a story. Even if you don’t want to share your most intimate details with the entire wired planet, you can just jot down what you’ve seen each day.

    This is powerful stuff. More powerful, maybe, than even Space Ghost. Maybe.

    So, David, are you saying that we should all be blogging?

    (BTW, after the comments on your last entry, I had a “Space Ghost” flashback. . .I thought of the episode where he uses the cliche, “*Murder* is on the menu. . .”:-)
