American Stranger has a new post about the tyranny of writing on the Internet. It goes a long way towards explaining the way I blog, actually:

Writing on the Internet immediately threatens ‘authors’ with their ‘audience’ — the moment one stops thinking of oneself as an isolated performer on stage is when conversation can begin, but doing this requires the abandonment of all concern for developing one’s ‘craft.’
My "writing" is what I do in published articles, stories, and papers—aside from a couple of experiments with culturemonkey, I've never been able to think of my blogging as writing. It's an entirely different, and for me significantly inferior, practice; a hobby, not a vocation.
