Blogging Continued…

I’ve considered this concept — the need verus the right to publish for awhile.  When I was first out of college, I thought it was terrible that publishing was a controlled process.  Now, as I search the internet for information, I wonder if that was in fact the case.

How do you validate internet data?  You go to a published (validated) source and confirm the information.  How is that different then 20 years ago?  More people have access to the baseline informatoin, and many people act upon that information right or wrong.  Which means the potential for errors is greater now then 20 years ago.

But the control is still the same.

So this blogging thing, ultimately what are we doing?

My First Blog


I’ve been around computers for roughly 20 plus years.  Every trend that has come along over those years is something I’ve tried.

Blogging is one that I’ve put off for a long time.  Mostly due to the fact that I am a little concerned about the right to publish, versus the need to publish.

In the past it was difficult to get items you thought about or wrote down published.  This system of check’s and balences actually helped maintain the "quality" of published information.  Now anyone can publish virtually anything.  How do we arbitrate "reality" in this modern publication system?

So I’ve held off blogging until now.  Still not quite sure this is the best answer to whatever question was asked, but giving it a try.
