Still Blogging in 2017

Tim Bray, Ongoing, May 05, 2017
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I liked this short post from Tim Bray. "I'm still blogging," he says, noting that it's a bit of an exception these days, an exception not only to write (as fewer and fewer people are doing it) but also to be read (as more and more the internet is being taken over by commercial publications). "The great dan­ger," he writes, "is that the Web’s fu­ture is mall-like: No space re­al­ly pub­lic, no store­fronts but na­tion­al brands’, no vi­su­als com­posed by am­a­teurs, noth­ing that’s on of­fer just for its own sake, and for love."
