Give It To Me Straight

Per David's request, a few words: "I still believe the most significant event in our time is the Web and we have only scratched the surface of what it means. I believe the most significant event happening on the Web now is the explosion of weblogs, aka blogs.

Whether you characterize them as online diaries, daily journals or periodic rants, blogs have one intent ... the truth. They tell stories. They have voice. They sound like real people. Their aim is to connect to others, empower others, inspire others. They are about sharing power, not seizing it.

They are taking the web out of the control of corporations and returning it to the people who first conceived of it. They are turning a whore back into a virgin, no small task, and preparing the way for a completely new way to work, live, think and prosper."
