Once in a while Dave Winer hits one out of the park – this is one of those times:
“ … the posts I’ve written here have served as a calling card, a way of keeping my name and ideas on people’s minds.
… And that’s the role of a blog, it’s a way of communicating what you’re doing. Companies, consultants and authors need to do a lot of communicating, and blogs allow you to go direct, and be more efficient, less diluted. People get a real feel for who you are and how you think and what you’re like as a person.”
As sensational as that title (and some of the content that follows) is, if you can see past the numbers the logic is all right there. This post could just as easily been titled, ‘Why I blog’.
