Steve Rubel Quits Blogging

Filed as News on June 29, 2009 4:09 pm

Notable blogger Steve Rubel is quitting blogging, and is all about the lifestreaming now. He’s apparently blown away by Posterous, but looking at his new site it is all very much a blog to me. Then again the platform he has chosen is a lot less tightened than his old blog (being Micro Persuasion, still online), so I while I think he’s just playing with words here, this probably sums it up better than anything else:

A blog is more structured. It’s posts. This is freestyle.

    He already hinted at this/lifestreaming in August 2007.:

    Where I will publish in a year’s time is anyone’s guess. However, what you can bank on is that I will have even more community accounts than I do now.

    I believe you’ve nailed it with your final quote and Seth Godin has an interesting take, as well –

    From a 60-year-old perspective, I am grateful to have lived to see a new sourcing paradigm for the news we consume. Blogging, and the talent that it has exposed to the world will be the death of Old Media. And it’s about time . . .

    Bravo to you all!
