Blogging is dead!

Yes, blogging is flat-lining, as we type.

The future is “web sites”. [Wow, how innovative!]

Blogs are common and worthless, particularly as most of them, err, no longer, or never did, exist.

So says some guy who believes that “the medium” is the blog, while web sites, apparently, use an entirely other medium. [Either or neither of which he also believes are “emerging” “technologies”. Silly me: I thought it was all software code mated with the handy-dandy neighbourhood ISP.]

He must have arcane knowledge about technology to which the rest of us aren’t privy.

Drunka reports on this fascinating opinion piece, and, given that he has done it to death with a flamboyant verve way beyond my ken, we’ll now cross over to reporter and blogger on the ground –
Drunka – Blogging doomed, or something.

    I would have thought the future is something entirely different, but....

    Ain't nuffin common 'bout your blog Caz.
    'Cepting maybe some of the commentors.(To be fair I include myself here!)

    And sooooo... All this time your colourful blog has been a pigment of my imagination eh?

    Rhetorical question!

    Gawd, I have a great imagination, don't you think?

    Mmmm.. Don't answer that!

  3. I'm one of those bloggers who had the remarkable good sense to understand the insignificance of, and dross generated by, the swirl of squillions of blogs, so I decided to refrain from having a blog. I did not join the fray.

    Therefore, this blog is either a figment of your imagination, or it's a web site.

    Or, perhaps, it's a little bit of door number one, and a little bit of door number two.

    Which would mean you're imagination is only half as good as you think it is Kath.

  4. This is getting complicated . . .
