A Moment in Praise of Technology

March 17, 2011

Over on livejournal, yuki_onna has made a really heartfelt and insightful post, In Praise of Blogging.

This was my response:

“When I was in my early teens I wanted to be rich enough so that I could write what I thought was important and somehow get it published and distributed. I didn’t want fame, I just wanted to be able not only to express myself, but to reach out with my words to those who wanted to receive them, engage in intelligent correspondence, and maybe help people occasionally with an insight or personal story.

Then the internet happened, and I find myself 20 years later able to do all of that for free.

We live in extraordinary times.”
