Me again. So this section's officially shelved. But we still get a lot of traffic and Google-flow here so wanted to at least point you to our extensive archives that date back a good year. Scan them and you'll find hundreds, maybe thousands of comments about blogging, where it's headed, how it makes people feel, what impact it may be having on media, speculation about emerging hiveminds, etc.

[OK, so it's looking like this will remain a what's-up-on-Corante page for now... Worth catching today: an entertaining interview with David Weinberger and Dan Gillmor by Sarah Lai Stirland about their new site Word Pirates. David on how they hit upon the idea: "[We] were having dinner (at a blogging conference, of course), griping about how we lost the battle once the phrase 'intellectual property' and 'piracy' entered the common parlance. Before I knew it, Dan had fashioned a pirate's cap out of a napkin and was brandishing a baguette as a makeshift cutlass..."]

[Still quiet and may remain so but wanted to call attention to Stewart Butterfield's guest-blogging on Many-to-Many over the next two weeks. In his first post Stewart reports on "Social Networking: Is there Really a Business Model?", the MIT/Stanford Venture Lab (VLAB)-sponsored panel discussion that took place last night at Stanford Business School.]

[Don't miss Brain Waves this week where Steven Johnson's following Pat Kane in subbing in for Zack and talking about his new book on the way: Mind Wide Open. Steven: "What I'm interested in his how simply understanding your brain's inner life -- both seeing it in action via imaging technologies, and simply learning about brain science in general -- can change the way that you think about yourself as an individual, your own quirks and passions and habits and fears..."]

Andrew Sullivan, who says he's taking a break: "Blogging each day, sometimes thousands of words a day, is a wonderful but grueling way to write. I think bloggers do well to take time out. We can lose perspective, stop thinking in longer form, and also get exhausted."

Anil Dash on the fourth anniversary of his blog: "I've made lots of great friends through this weblog, gotten a dream job, and improved my life in countless other immeasurable ways."

Kaye Trammell: "Several times over the past week I have heard many ask, 'can I blog this?' The answer is almost a surprised one: 'of course!' Even so, it has become the right thing to do."

Shelley Powers: "I'm a bit miffed because weblogging has done absolutely nothing for my sex life -- what a gyp."

Dave Pollard: "I think many of us are aching to enrich the relationships with our readers, to whom we owe a great deal, and would welcome bi-directional, multi-channel communication functionality, tightly linked to our blog posts, to allow us to engage in true conversations and community-building with them."

Christian Crumlish channels Don McLean: "A long, long time ago, I can still remember, How that blogging used to make me smile. And I knew if I had my chance, I could make the Googledance, And maybe Technorati for a while..."

Steve Outing: "Last year, I wrote a column... suggesting that many reporters, correspondents, editors, and columnists at newspapers should produce Weblogs. I stand by that advice, but these days I place equal importance on non-staff members producing the content for blogs at news companies."

Elaine Frankonis, in an article in the Chicago Tribune on women and blogging: "From politics to partying, from men to menopause, from feminism to family--women Webloggers seem more comfortable in viewing their personal lives in a larger, cultural context and also in looking at global issues from a very personal point of view."

Katherine Murray, in the same article: "You have the ability to be seen for who you are and have a connection with someone that has nothing to do with the kind of car you drive. It's very freeing."

[Be sure to check out the guest-blogging of Pat Kane this week on Brain Waves, our blog on neurotechnology that's primarily authored by Zack Lynch. Pat's the first of a handful of excellent commentators Zack has invited to sub in for him while he does the heavy lifting of writing his book over the next month or two. On Pat's mind: his "play ethic" meme as illustrated in his discussion of: 

  • Athletic specimens whose "ultra-human" play may be "outlining a possible future for us"
  • The cognitive delusion of "the pentitent mathematician John Allen Paulos... as he chased his WorldCom stocks up and down the markets, with disastrous personal consequences"
  • And whether "carefully-calibrated drugs [may] open new doors of perception" and "enable players to participate in all the ramifying games and strategies of information societies..."

Mind-expanding, as they say...]

Terry Teachout: "A friend asked me the other night, 'Do you think there are any really important artists who get completely overlooked? And do you think blogging might change that?'... Hereís my short answer: Thatís one of the reasons why I started this blog."
