internet of the past.....


As I've been endeavoring to post every (week)day I've discovered just how much work is involved in making this "blogging" interesting to others as well as relevant to my own work. I've seen a couple of posts lately (here and here) lamenting the loss of originality on the internet and bemoaning the mounds of reused links and referrals that pass as content these days.

I really hear what these two are talking about. I've been reading/writing/posting online since 2001 (over six years!), and I do feel a difference that sometimes is wonderful and sometimes very repetitive. While it makes sense for me to post and keep track of all the things I love and find in cyberspace (tee hee) I do wonder if I'm finding enough truly interesting content to make this worthwhile. To that end, I do try to write my own critique and commentary, but man, it does take a long time to sort and write and plan these things. Funny, how doing things on the internet often starts out as a way to pass downtime at work! Now I rarely have enough downtime to keep up....

Anyway, I've found some synchronicity in my online reading lately, so thought I'd pass it on. My next big posting project will be some of my thesis work from my MA last year...might as well put it out here where it might get read....or at least get linked to!
