I've been blogging for almost ten years now. I started out hyperlinking just about every topic in my blog because I believed in the hypertext possibility of the web. Back ten years ago, my posts would have 5 or six links in each post, linking to people, companies, anything I was talking about. Nowadays I just write. Over the years, I've become even more self-conscious about what I write, too. Sitting locked up in the snow house today I was looking at some of my old blog posts. Some of them are just inane now. Some of the postings are like looking at the Internet Dead Pool, covering tech ideas that just never went anywhere...

I don't want to delete the whole thing and start over - but primarily because I'm not sure I would replace it with anything better. The historical significance of a running online diary isn't lost on me either.

Every year or two I delete all the crappiest and most ill-consider posts I've written. Someday I'll hire a copy editor in India, too, heh heh.
