caught in the blogosphere

blogs look like a natural cross between instant messaging and the world wide web. like giving some sort of persistent medium to IMers, or rather creating a medium that lies between 'maintaining a web site' and 'chatting on IM systems' on the persistence, responsiveness, 'informalness' scales. this seems to be now the method of choice for expression on the web. this has been happening over the last couple of years, and for old-timers who have been away from active participation in the online community, browsing http://www.technorati.com gives a feeling that one is falling behind :-)
