Sitting in the back seat of my friends car, I happily posted my first “mobile” blog and exclaimed, “there’s one down!” Immediately my friends began to chatter about how impressive it was that I had posted to my blog on the short ride home from the mall.
“You sound like you’re in a smart phone commercial,” said one of them.
After taking in what they had said, I began to really think about how far journalism has come and how immediately one can publish an original work online. While I post tweets all the time, the depth of blogging combined with the quickness of a tweet really blew my mind.
I feel it’s important for people to take the time to appreciate the potential of the Internet and the possible ramifications instant publishing can have.
