I've finally caught up to this article I've been trying to read for a while: The Mass Amateurisation of (Nearly) Everything by Tom Coates. It's a great discussion on weblogs, their accessibility and what they can do. Where else can I hear the opinion of someone's mom from Liguria explaining why pesto made with a mortar and pestle is better than that made with a food processor? It's a unique community of expressive and creative people that make up the blogworld. The only problem? It's dominated by an age group ranging from high school to early 30s. This is unfortunate, since we all know the true wisdom in life is achieved much later. That wisdom should be shared.
