A Birthday: The Weblog

No, not mine, which is about a year and a half old. But the word weblog turns ten years old today.

Writing in Wired, Jorn Barger--who coined the term on December 17, 1997-- makes it pretty clear that his notion of a "weblog" is something a bit different from what it has become. He was thinking more on the lines of a log of websites--something like, maybe, a forum for freelance self-delusion. But his main advice surely holds: don't forget to link (link).
