Well, I guess I’m going to have to pay more attention to what I say in my weblogs. Funny thing is, I’m not exactly sure if I’m happy or sad about it. Until I discovered blogging, I actually had no idea how enjoyable I found the act of writing, and while I can’t exactly call myself a regular, I do now consider it an important part of my life and I derive a great deal of enjoyment from having it as a creative outlet for my ideas.
But, I guess as is the case with everything, my weblogging days were bound to grow up eventually. Just this morning, a friend forwarded me a blog review of my most recent blog. As it turns out, Dave Winer, an individual with whom I hold a great deal of respect for, had some particular harsh words surrounding my ‘open source’ ideals as being basically outdated. Funny thing is, I can’t remember ever actually having an in-depth conversation with Dave about my ideas surrounding open source, and so it had to have been my poorly written weblog which created the confusion in the first place.
Oh well, I guess if I didn’t want anyone reading my stuff, I would write it in a journal and put it under my bed.
