Jorn Barger, the man who coined the phrase “weblog” over a decade ago offers a sobering perspective about what blogging was intended to be in a brief piece in WIRED. He does so simply – by posting the original 10 rules of weblogging.

Sobering.

You can argue with the specifics, but I think in direction he is right. We could all use a little more humility in creating our posts – I know I could.

Have a read, absorb them. Then get someone to translate into Chinese.

(The picture is pretty cool. Barger’s hairstyle does Richard Stallman one better. Oh, to have facial hair.)
