On discussion in the blogosphere

I had intended to post the next selection from the writings of F. W. Boreham today, but I've pushed it back to tomorrow because of how last week's discussions here at InFocus (see here and here) and Jeremy's post yesterday have raised the issue of online discussion. I think there

Dorm Discussions and Other Analogies

From time to time, someone who is unfamiliar with the internet in all its applications will ask me to explain it to them. They want to know what is a blog, a forum, a social networking site. I usually spend a few minutes explaining how these three mediums work and
