… at a typewriter bleeding

October 12, 2006

Hemingway once said There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed. Since I started blogging I have come to realise (and I hate to admit this) that Euan was right. Intimacy and trust can be as powerful if they emerge through the broadcast-network model that is the bloggosphere. Not the same mind you, more the sort of empathy that you get in a keynote, coupled with the conversatins that follow (comments). I mean that both ways: since I started to blog, I have been far more active in commenting on other people’s sites. I can’t find the blog where Euan made that statement mind you, but if you search his blog you will see that his taste in chairs is terrible (which is petty but I need to restore some pride).
