I've been ponder a post about the nature of blogging and the hubris of many those that do (taking all the credit for the Dan Rather episode, for example). Then Mark Dery comes along with this post and, well, I couldn't possibly say it better.
Updated: Tom Watson says some interesting things on the anniversary of his blog. And, according to Dave Pollard, this blog is one of the "5 million active bloggers" (which gets me a grade of about D-/F). Since I'm doing this more for myself than for my loyal following, that's just fine with me.
