"He who does not Blog" explains

OK - this is probably going to seem a little odd for a while as I get to grips with how things work in the blogosphere, but bear with me - it's in a good cause.

The "He who does not Blog" tag refers to the 24 April 2007 post to the WATRC diary page, in which I confess to being a lousy diarist and a never-yet-blogger.

So why this change of heart ?

Well, the thing about blogging is it's a communication revolution that just sort of happened - a quiet revolution changed the world while we slept. While much of the content you can find on the web (and in blogs) is trivial, banal, or downright ugly, the best blogs have become a source of alternative and authoritative news, opinion, and commentary.

And a nice feature of blogs is their mechanism for feedback, debate, participation and sharing of viewpoints, whether within clearly defined communities of interest, or globally.

This blog is very experimental - being a newbie blogger, and a self admitted lousy one at that, this blog is going to need contributors and participants. Like most initiatives it will either be adopted by those who see value in it, or it will wither and disappear (which is fine if it has no value).
