[social,quote] Brad DeLong, "Life in the Information Age"

Brad DeLong on blogging side effects. Посвящается theophilusnorth, которая Не Читает ЖЖ.

There are all these people I know… who don't have weblogs… and then when I run into or call them, the usual thing is to find out how each of us is doing by trading stories… but I don't have any stories to trade – they've already read them on my weblog.

It's awkward. I propose a new social custom: if you don't have a weblog, you have to pretend that you haven't been reading the weblog of the person you are talking to until you have listened patiently to at least their three best relatively-new stories.
