Blogging is open source writing.

Blogging is open source writing. Did you ever think of that? (Yeah, maybe everyone but me has talked about it, but it just occurred to me as I was writing the preceding post.) The amazing thing about bloggers is all the energy they put into something which has no measurable payback.

I get close to a majority of the latest technical, computer industry and even political information from blogs. I am benefitting from someone else's labor of love. It's an odd dynamic. And I think it is analogous to Open Source coding.
