  Impermanence of weblog writing

Just came across series on permalinks in Weblogging for Poets by Shelley Powers (Burningbird):

From the last part:

We edit each other's memories all the time. Two old friends get together and they talk about old times and one says, "Hey remember when..." and the other goes, "That's not what I remember...". Memory of a shared conversation is a negotiation, a give and take and by the time all parties are finished, the memory isn't exactly as it happened, but is no less real. That's how conversations work -- we are not heads of state to have every word in every exchange recorded, permanently.

Somehow it correlates with another piece, by Jay Rosen:

Sure, weblogs are good for making statements, big and small. But they also force re-statement. Yes, they're opinion forming. But they are equally good at unforming opinion, breaking it down, stretching it out, re-building it around new stuff. Come to some conclusions? Put them in your weblog, man, but just remember: it doesn't want to conclude.

This weblog is my learning diary. Sometimes I write about things related to my work, but the views expressed here are personal and do not necessarily reflect the views of my employer.
