Ford, IBM, Gates and Blogging

David Farrar posted a summary of blogging activity for the NZ political blogosphere. It shows that the total number of posts and comments are on the increase.
The total number of posts on NZ political blogs this month was 3,163 (2,574 in April) with 12,143 (8,396) comments made.
Good going NZ bloggers! For those that have been saying blogs make no difference, they can line up with other bright sparks that have been famously wrong: Henry Ford who said you can choose any colour car, as long as it was black; IBM who (in 1943) thought there would be a market for only a few computers; Bill Gates who once said "640K should be enough for anybody"; and some famous dude (the name escapes me) who thought the internet would never catch on (And Bob Dole said the internet was a good way to get on to the net).

Over the last month, the Press have printed one of Adolf's posts. I've seen and heard many references to blogging and bloggers in main stream media. Silent Running has started pod casting and blog comments have been turned into T-Shirts!

It's still early days. We are pioneers. If we can have some fun or learn something from all this, then we are covered both ways. Too easy.

Remember: blogging is the talk-back radio of the middle class (Greg Stephens, 2005).

If I'm middle class where's my second car and 2.4 kids?

Haven't you heard - middle class has been down-sized.

everyone is middle-class now..

there's the rich and poor at the edges, and everyone else is (aspirational) middle-class..

almost makes you yearn for the certainties of a stratified class system eh?..... (i did say almost)..
