So, obviously, my consciousness had registered that this weblogging phenomenon was taking off. From the header in Dan's to the fact that there are even mostly-Lisp weblogs, the evidence was fast becoming compelling.
However, when my significant other (one who has had a fair amount of exposure to technology over the years, bless her, but who let us say hasn't exactly enthused over it) announces that, encouraged by a Guardian competition, she has started her own weblog, I have to confess feeling that I am being left behind technologically by the great British public. Did we think that technology was going to be the great leveller, giving equality of opportunity? While this is probably still as untrue as it has been in the past, maybe, just maybe, expression of self has become more possible.
