Just a random thought here, but was reminiscing about the good old days back when this blog was not quite as sucky as it is now. It's hard to comprehend now, but there was really something controversial and subversive about the idea that you could just write stuff on the internets and people might read it. There were a few proto-bloggers before cheap-to-free hosting and blogging software, but those two things lowered the entry bar just enough to make it easy for everybody.
