This is a blog about the Internet, the very last thing that the Internet needs. The effect that it will have on the net, compared to a scenario in which I don't write it at all, is basically zero. This seems like an excellent reason not to do it. Maybe I should end things there: Post, Blog, Match. A single post; you have to admire the simplicity.
While this blog may not have a measurable impact on the Internet, it will have considerable effect on me. By posting, I will become a better member of the Internet community. It will force me to th
ink critically about th
e subjects that face this industry. I will have a forum to present my analysis publicly so its logic can be debated. It will hold me accountable for my thoughts in a way that highlight their value both in the present and in hindsight. To determine if someone is truly an Internet expert, read their posts from a year ago. What they have to say in hindsight is a good indication of how important it is to listen to them now. If you find yourself reading this in a year, let me save you the trouble; ignore everything I have to say.
