I apologize to all
5 6 readers of this blog for the lack of posts recently. I have been a bit depressed about blogging and conversation and all forms of discourse in general. This mood has been brought on by a confluence of events which include, but is not exclusive of, the shootings at Virginia Tech, the release of the shooter’s blather, the talk about the media coverage of the shootings, the talk about the release of the shooter’s blather, the talk about the talk about these events, the talk about main stream media v new media or citizen journalism or a whole bunch of people blathering on about blogging and how it’s so new and cool and whether bloggers and commenters on blogs or elsewhere should be allowed to be anonymous and what all that means and all the energy seemingly devoted to thoughts and opinions that don’t matter much including my own.
OK. Now that I got that off my chest I should be able to get back to more regular blathering, er blogging.
