Emails lead to blogging

Dave Winer outlines his 10-year odyssey into blogging:

“Ten years ago today I sent an email to the software industry, about a Marc Canter product rollout. That was followed by a series of emails, many hundred of them, most written by me, but some written by others. In 1997, the email flow spawned what I called a news site which eventually became known as a weblog, and then shortened to blog. That first email, as sloppy and weird as it was, pointed in the direction of free publishing for the people. If I could do it, so could you. In hindsight, it seems so obvious, but nothing really is until it exists. It was a bootstrap then, even more raw than the podcasts of today. But it led to many coooool things, and hopefully many more!”

I enjoy seeking out the obvious. It can be so hard to find.

Loren Heiny (1961 - 2010) was a software developer and author of several computer language textbooks. He graduated from Arizona State University in computer science. His first love was robotics.
