"Power corrupts. PowerPoint corrupts absolutely."

More seriously, an interesting and insightful article on blogging. I think a lot of this applies to anyone who writes in any kind of public forum.

"It is the same impulse that animates any writer—the desire to be read. I am surprised that there isn’t a word for that phrase; it describes so common and understandable a need. Weblogs give the average person a taste of what published writers have: a public, perhaps only in miniature, or at least the illusion of one."

"Weblogs that last, (whether their content has significance or no) will doubtless be those whose authors are possessed by that need which makes otherwise normal people sit down and write with the regularity that other folks eat dinner."

The whole thing is worth reading, I think.
