To understand and to harness the power of blogging, we need new terms and concepts. One very good definition is “A blog is merely a tool that lets you do anything from change the world to share your shopping list.
It is way too soon in the evolution of blogging to limited it with a set definition.
In my mind you can not define something that is constantly changing and evolving with out direction. This is where the word concept comes in to play. In my opinion a blog is “A interactive concept, that is a subset of the blogosphere”
The blogosphere is a good example of chaos and the butterfly effect. I like the concept that small variations of the initial condition of a dynamical system may produce large variations in the long term behavior of the system
A chaotic system that evolves freely is potentially very adaptable and creative. It could also become nearly anything, with unpredictable consequences.
One of the most fascinating tools we have is the “friends list”. I like the concept of the above picture, they are all raising their hands in different ways.
Blogs have a tendency to be self-replicating concepts and are potentially the most powerful technology of all, since they can increase their reach exponentially in suitable environments.
I like to call this concept“The power of blogging”
What do you think a blog should be?
