It's been a while since I blogged. I've just been busy, traveling, facebooking, tweeting. They're somewhat more interactive than blogs and I feel actually feel like blogs may be a thing of the past. Sure, it's a permanent record of our thoughts, ideas, and adventures, but somehow it's becoming more static, like another website. The journaling aspect of blogging seems to be overshadowed by Twitter and Facebook as the primary purpose has shifted. It used to be that bloggers blogged to update their friends and followers what had been going on in their lives, but with around the clock tweets and Facebook status updates, who reads blogs now?
Maybe I'm just cynical about how quickly technologies replace one another. I used to be the elite few who trumpeted the wonderfulness of Smartphones. But now, it seems like everyone has one, and people are already looking for something else; maybe a PDA that will fold our laundry.
Now, that would be a killer app.
