the death of online journals
Somebody recently made an observation that 200 million online blogs were rotting away with people not making any entries at all. Is the blogging phenomenon dying?
Well, the internet is just one big pile of junk containing useful things tucked away in corners. I believe it used to be the reverse when it started. 200 million blogs will only contribute to more junk.
As an analogy, space is being touted as man's next frontier. When China blew an old satellite in space with a anti-satellite missile, the whole world protested that China created 600 pieces of junk in space. Right now, the amount of debris in space is very minimal. Someone will figure out a way to avoid the debris and then won't care about how much debris. And in the future, space is gonna be exactly like the internet.
