According to Sarah Perez from ReadWriteWeb, "What's taking its place? Lifestreaming." Hm. This would be a combination of Twitter posts, Facebook status updates, and various oddiments form the mobile phone camera. According to Perez, "Lifestreams are short and sweet, yet still provide the same insight into a person's life as yesterday's casual personal blog did." I am a fan of the short post, as any reader of OLDaily will attest. But I think talk of one form replacing another is silly. They serve different purposes.
