Small Towns

| 2 Comments

Brent Simmons, the man behind the insanely great NetNewsWire, talks about the blogosphere in a recent interview:

It's kind of like if we all lived in the same small town. The people who have weblogs are like the people who make a point of going to Main Street at least a few times a week. They go to the barber shop, the grocer's, the lunch counter -- they get out and talk to people.

If you don't have a weblog, it's like you live on the outskirts of town and have all your food delivered and you even have people come mow your lawn so you don't have to go outside.

No matter how big the web gets, it will always be a small town because that's how you interact with it. You can't help but make your own small town out of it.

As your body is to your physical presence, your weblog is to your web presence.

In that case, I wanna be Mr. Drucker.

Guess that makes me Goober.
