  Blogging as thinking in short paragraphs

Top 20 Definitions of Blogging by Debbie Weil [via Dina Mehta]. From all 20 this is the one I like most today:

13. A way to think and write in short paragraphs instead of a long essay (which no one has time to read anyway)

I think that the microcontent nature of weblogs is an important component of the mix that makes them so powerful: I can't finish the report I'm supposed to write for a week, but at the same time I wrote a few weblog posts :)

  Styling weblog quotes

An old post by Seb pointing to Themes and metaphors in the semantic web discussion by Peter Van Dijck with a suggestion to check HTML source. I did - and loved the way quotes are crafted:

  • each quote has a name and a face next to it
  • this is done by simple <blockquote id="name" cite="link"> and styling

Are there any technical people around to implement it? Otherwise the only option is to do it manually with Radio shortcuts or something like it...
