The explosion is beginning

It’s like wildfire. You start talking about blogs and pretty soon it’s everywhere. CTV news did a piece on last week and CBC radio did a piece on it as well. I still wish people would stop calling them online diaries but that’s another story.
I’ve had several teachers interested in using it as a class website and also to encourage writing and I have a suspision it will soon surpass traditional websites for classrooms.

The RSS deal is also gettting to become a big thing. I subscribe to 34 feeds thus far and obviously that will grow.

I haven’t quite been able to put my finger on why this is such a vastly different way to experience the web but it is. I’m sure folks with more understanding have already thought this one through.
