Friendster vs Blogger

In reply to my recent post about Friendster Wayne commented...

What is a more open, honest way to connect with people online? A blog?

Let me be cynical for a brief moment and say that when most people write about themselves [in a blog], there is a thick layer of bullshit. They are presenting who they want to present. It's safe.

I absolutely do believe that blogging has substantially raised the quality and standard for connecting with people online.

Blogs and bloggers do raise genuine questions, many do earnestly challenge conventional thinking. I think blogging does require soul searching. I think that meaningful connections and important ideas are occurring on a monumental proportion, like never before, directly as a result of blogging.
