Here are some things on my mind this Friday:
-I’d rather have a long meal at a good restaurant with Emily (my wife) than nearly anything else.
-To me, the best blogs are well written, have great content, and a clear sense of why people read it. I’ve been blogging for several years now, and I know how easy it is to get pulled off track.
-Having said that, it’s also a blogger’s prerogative to mix it up a bit–if for no other reason than to stir their own creativity. Long term, it’s probably a win for the readers.
-Do you think people can develop truly close relationships with people exclusively online–meaning, they’ve never met? I think so…with some hesitation.
-The new Junot Diaz book is out. I love his writing, despite the fact it’s content can get rather harsh at times. He knows how to tell difficult stories.
-If our opinion of the media continues to decline, where will we get news? To me, epistemology (how we know what we know) is going to be a fascinating field in the years to come.
