It’s kind of funny that I’m doing this blog.
I’ve been writing four-page articles for several years now, and have sort of been itching to write something longer. Something book-length, with a bit more substance and nuance and completeness than a short article can contain. But instead, I find myself moving in the opposite direction – short blog posts.
And yet, a blog is more than a series of short, isolated posts. A blog is actually a continuing stream, and could end up being longer than a book, not shorter. With the opportunity to have discussions in the comments section – this may indeed be more substantive than a book. It has the potential to be richer, the ideas more fully explored and more dynamically developed. A book is a broadcast monologue – a blog is a conversation.
So, we’ll see how it turns out. I really appreciate all the comments & discussions we’ve had so far. I look forward to seeing how things develop.
