  1. Thanks so much for including my post about blogging in today's wrap up. I'm honored Steve.

  2. What about the contents? Do they matter? I write and research every single day, looking out for topics that attract the attention of people. Some, including myself, still see the Internet with kind of a “suspension of disbelief” gaze: Sometimes some of us, who knew 5 1/4-floppy disks and actually started their video-games addiction with the archaic charm of an Atari 2600 console. So, watching how fast the Internet grew up into this fascinating kaleidoscope of stimuli is a bit too much to fathom in one day. Who knows what’s going to be waiting for us tomorrow?
