Good writing, good blogging: Dave Winer

February 25th, 2003 · 1 Comment

Dave Winer blew me away today with a blog entry called “Why blogs are cool“. Dave, a major blog-software guru, has been thinking aloud online about Google and Blogger–and thereafter suffering through having other people quote, misquote, analyze, mis-analyze, etc. whatever he said. Dave responds to it all with good humor. My favorite quote:

Because I have a weblog, I can write about it at length, several times. I can write until I’m finished. If you don’t care, that’s cool too, you can hit the Back button. But I get to say what I want, and I can get it right, and if I don’t there’s a fresh empty page tomorrow that I’m going to fill, Murphy-willing of course.

Can you think of a better, or shorter, description of why blogs are cool? Thank you, Dave Winer.
