Walter Cronkite reading.
Funny how stories you sent to zines over a large space of time often appear at once. http://www.darkestbeforedawn.net/?q=node/40
Thanks to Aldo for posting SOURIS.
One of the the more interesting (for me) aspects of JULIA AND JULIE was the questions raised about the value of blogs. I am sure you run into people too who question the worth of blogging. Whenever I mention my blog, people get that glazed-over look. Oh, you blog. How nice that you have this hobby. We are saving the world in the meantime. We have real lives. But, you, you blog. Knitting can be useful, too.
Of course, when "Julie" of Julia and Julie blogged it was a very new thing. She had no "Crimespot" to tie her to people of similar interests. She was truly out there on her own. Was it anything more than ennui?
Has blogging changed over time? Do you get any respect for having a blog? What is the future of blogging" Will blogs take the place of newspapers and other media? Or is it mostly narcissistic? Does anyone care beside us? What say you, bloggers?
