I wonder what Mina Trott’s mom said about Project Comet after she saw the demo. §
Is she going to start blogging now? I guess not. The day blogs replace emails and telephone conversations, that’s the day I’ll say we are all connected to each other and yet disconnected in some way.
Blogs as a compliment to emailing/ calling is cool. If I were to have a family blog with my cousins etc, it would be a good way for me to keep in touch with them all and know more about them and their thoughts on books, movies, music, family gatherings, happenings, etc etc — but I still don’t see myself writing totally personal stuff on the blog. Even within the family, I’d be closer to some members and so would want to say more things to them than others — that level of fine grained permissions would be a bother to keep twiddling around with in a blog. Nevertheless, its a lot better than blogs which are open for the whole world to see!
