I thought this article was pretty cool because I’m much more traditional so it made me think of the web in a new positive way. I love binding books but then when it gets down to filling them I have a harder time. Maybe if I blogged more regularly or used facebook I would have more of a record. But in a sense a lot of it is pointless. But it’s kind of the only way to keep writing alive these days. I definitely agree with the part about writing for an audience. But there is the issue that not a lot of people are reading what people say. In a sense that does matter. Not for the writer but to keep reading alive as well. I think we just have to make sure more formal writing doesn’t die. It is easy and convenient to post on a blog, so people can do it without much effort. It’s a nice perspective but we need a little of everything to mark our place in history.
