Got some interesting talk with my friend sometime last weekend. Sembang-sembang sesama IT.
His view is that Blogging is bad since it shows a lot of personal information. People tend to ramble in blogging, just like what they write in diaries or journals. Such as political views, habits and other particulars.
I totally agreed with the big guy in this area. Some of the blogs are totally personal and should not even be viewed by friends, much less by strangers all over the world. But, if those are people's preferences, then I have no complaint. But sometimes, I like to shout, "Too much data, too much data!! Ne no ne no...Blowing up!!"
I prefer those blogspots with information inside. Articles references, reviews of places that they had visited or dined, common experiences...those things that would grow you up. One of the blog that I really like are the Dilbert blog. Very well thought out and thought provoking. (How many thought that I had written until now? )
I tried to follow some of his examples, but being in a zone with the cold temperature like the Arctic, somehow freezes my brain a bit. My other explanation, is that I'm just too lazy to think. Hmm...very thought provoking...
So, my shortcut is that, if I found in my meanderings some interesting articles that I want to cut and paste in my 'journal'...then I would include that in my blog. Simple enuf and saves the glue too....thus, also saving the life of some old horse....
One of the example is :
Doing away with one-sen coin payment (Where am I going to bring my sackful of 1 cent??)
I like to give some clever comments too...just to show people how clever I am. Or is it, am I? Confused already. Need to sleep. But have to wait...another 3 hrs to go....
Tonite need to walk quite some distance in a not so reputable roads. Wish me luck. If I do not write anything in the next few days, consider me gone.
Not so cheers..

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
