Nothing in the latest Technorati statistics to suggest whether or not the content being created on blogs is becoming more useful or interesting or valuable, but there’s no doubt that the blog engine continues to run at a pretty high RPM. Some of the findings:
1.2 million posts a day is a pretty amazing number. And if the trends hold true, by June that will be over 2 million, and 4 million by the beginning of next year. A part of me finds that overwhelming, but a bigger part of me finds it exciting as all get out. There is much to learn in that soup of posts. Think of the opportunity. The key is being able to find it, evaluate it and use it effectively.

I have started blogging recently. However for the past couple of years I have been contributing a couple of posts a day to various newsgroups and web forums, and am no longer doing that. I have lost interest in the subjects of those forums, and am blogging about things that are currently more important to me. I guess I’m becomming more self-centered.

Despite the fact that I’ve been working with computers since 1969 and with microcomputers since 1978, I’m a notoriously late-adopter.
I’ve been lurking on the blogosphere for several years now, but have yet to comment much or start my own. However, I’m considering it.
I’ve been doing some recent research on it in terms of our academic technology efforts and been pleased at the maturity that I’m seeing happen.
