Weblogs, personal voice and digital apprenticeship

Dale Pike:

A weblog does not have to include a first person voice, but I think that it becomes much less when it does not. I believe that a weblog is a concept that has become much more than simply the tools used to post chronologically-ordered HTML entries. A weblog is a manifestation of an individual voice. There will always be a place for sterile, scholarly dissertations, but I guarantee I won’t look forward to reading them on my lunch break. If I can listen to you, however, talk about something you’re doing…something that is going on in your life, chances are I can learn from you. And that IS something I’ll look forward to reading at lunch…

In other words, weblogging is about open digital apprenticeship.
