living online

Over at Long Tail there's a great post on the lack of a "diary" feel that comes with chronicling one's life online. There's no little plasticky lock protecting those thoughts anymore. It's a quick read, and so is the Michael Kinsley Slate piece he links through to - Chris Anderson uses the word amusing to describe the article, which is fitting.

I disagree with Michael Kinsley on many levels on this, but the main one is that if I'm not friends with Doug, it doesn't offend me that he has a site that he tries to update with what he's doing... in fact his site is quite entertaining. That's the great thing about all these new ways of communicating - it's our choice what we look at. It's not as if CNN is jamming Doug's whereabouts down our throats.
