Now, you needn’t just read Weblogs. A virtual stock market lets you trade in them
Many of us built our first houses, dealt in property, managed public utilities, and went to jail much before we were into our teens. That was in the make believe world of Monopoly, of course. Money games are a great way to learn about the harsh realities of a capitalist world without going through the pains of bankruptcy, insolvency, mortgages, and other such concepts of advanced living.
You cannot move online these days without falling over a weblog or 10.
All the people who, five years ago, were proudly showing off the shiny new e-mail address on their business cards, are now polishing up their weblogs and hoping they have something interesting to say to the world.
A journalist working for a major media company decides to start a personal Weblog in his spare time. His blog becomes popular (or not). His association with the media company is stated, but discreetly. He has the usual disclaimer: This Weblog is the opinion of Joe Journo, and not the company he works for. But what does the company think? If it’s CNN, Time magazine or the Hartford Courant, it doesn’t think — it acts, killing the Weblog for reasons stated (and unstated).
Whatever you may think of the publishing revolution known as blogging, the advent of technology for posting “top-of-mind” thoughts to a Web site is an intriguing development in Internet history. Weblogs, or “blogs” for short, dramatically ease the process of uploading simple kinds of content, thus facilitating a loosely organized kind of collaborative publishing.
