I was talking with a friend and for some reason we got on the subject of blogs. We both sometimes write things in our weblogs so we can store the info. Instead of post-its on the monitor, bookmarks in browsers, or to-do items in PDAs, we have blogs.
I already “blog for Google”, which is the same thing as the old usenet practice of posting a post about some problem I encountered and how I solved it. These entries are not really for discussion, but more for the archives so that the next poor soul can find it. Randal Schwartz tells me this is how it was back in the day when he could read all of usenet in a half-hour.
Someday, when we get our heads wrapped around unstructured data stores, there may be Perl modules called DBI::bloxsom and DBI::PerlMonks to bring together this stuff. Until then we have blogs and Google, and blogging about blogs.
