Blogging is most certainly not dead

Jason Kottke,, Apr 16, 2018
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is mostly just a set of links to some odds and ends in the blogging world, but there are comments I want to highlight. The first is this: "I refuse to let social media take everything. Those shapeless, formless platforms haven’t earned it and don’t deserve it... When I log into Facebook, I see Facebook. When I visit your blog, I see you." And this: "People are increasingly souring on the surveillance state Skinner boxes like Facebook and Twitter. Decentralized media like blogs and newsletters are looking better and better these days." Kottke (to whom I still subscribe) has been around for 20 years. Image: Hoder. Realted: How to make 29 different shapes of pasta by hand.
